Our Mission Statement
The Central Coast Greenhouse Growers Association (CCGGA) was founded to provide a cohesive organization that acts as a good neighbor within the local and regional community, providing information and education to neighbors; other community groups or businesses; and county, state, or federal agencies. The CCGGA acts on behalf of its members in resolving issues that may arise with neighboring communities, as we work to coexist and enjoy the numerous benefits the Central Coast provides for both living and growing high-quality plants.
The CCGGA was originally organized in the late 1980’s. It currently represents approximately 20 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 over forty 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.
