The CCGGA was originally organized in the late 1980′s. It currently represents approximately 17 local nursery businesses in the general Nipomo, Arroyo Grande & Santa Maria area. Many of these businesses are family owned and operated, and have been located on the Central Coast for twenty to thirty years. Many of the grower/owners live on their nursery sites and in all cases, the management staff of these businesses are residents of our local area making CCGGA truly a home-grown organization with its roots in the local community.
