New Home for the OVGC Resource Center


The Coalition has moved its headquarters down the street to 206 N. Signal St. Suite S (El Paseo office complex next to Wells Fargo, we’re upstairs). We hope you will visit us sometime Wednesday thru Friday, 12 to 5 p.m.
And look for Open House invitations coming this summer

Soon we’ll have everything back in order – educational displays and artwork, very impressive lending library, and recycling center for household batteries, handheld electronics, media storage, ink & toner, old holiday lights, and wine corks – to name a few of our ‘resources’.

If you can donate any of the following items on our Wish List, we'll get there that much faster!
• Flat screen monitor/TV for presentations
• Silk or live green plants
• Create a 4'x4' mural - on the 'story' of compost, watershed, or green streets

Please contact Deborah at, if you are able to donate fixtures, funds, or materials for our new center.

Thank you.
