Art of Recovery Show
Art of Recovery is a community art show in celebration and support of living mentally well, and was developed to offer people with mental illnesses a way to artistically express themselves. Art of Recovery will return to Santa Maria in May 2017.




Opening Minds
Opening Minds is a community art show in celebration of living mentally. The Opening Minds art show was first developed in 1995 to offer people with mental illness a way to express themselves and to provide a venue to share art, feelings and thoughts with the general public. The show has since expanded to include the entire mental health community: those in recovery, their family and friends, service providers and more. TMHA's goal remains the same today: to help the community see that people should not be defined in terms of their illness but by their strengths, gifts and by the contributions they make to society. Opening Minds will return to San Luis Obispo in May 2018.


Trunks of Treasure
Trunks of Treasure will return to Luna Red on Sunday, October 23rd from 12-2:30 p.m. The event is a delightful afternoon full of suspense, great prizes, and fantastic wines along with a gourmet luncheon. For information about this event, contact Shannon at 805.540.6510 or You can also visit the Trunks of Treasure page.


Grow Native
Drought Tolerant Plant Sale at Growing Grounds Farm in Santa Maria Autumn is the best time of year to plant perennial plants, especially native and drought tolerant plants. The cooler months and, hopefully, rain of winter will help plants get established in your garden. By planting drought tolerants you can enjoy year round beauty with minimal maintenance and expense. The farm supplies a wide variety of California natives that are drought tolerant and will provide years of sustainable beauty. Also available are many other hard to find drought tolerant Mediterranean and Australian plants and fun and unique succulents. Grow Native happens in the fall at 820 West Foster Road in Santa Maria. All proceeds will support Growing Grounds Farm and the people who depend on it for employment and horticultural therapy. For more information please call (805) 934-2182.

Please come back next year as we will be bigger and better!"
