Thanks to all who supported our recent Birdhouse & Garden Art Auction! What a gorgeous day! Thanks to Clara and Cielo who talked about their new house–and to all our sponsors, artisans, caterers, businesses, and individuals who donated items or made signs for us! And especially to all who came and purchased items to benefit our work in affordable housing! We appreciate this wonderful community support!

Habitat for Humanity of Mariposa County held its 4th Annual Birdhouse and Garden Art Auction on Saturday, April 13, 2019 from 1 to 4 pm. The event was held again at Sierra Cider in Lushmeadows and featured orchard tours from noon to 1pm, cider and wine tasting, food from BBs Catering, and beautiful hand-crafted items for auction. Members of the community who are artisans of any kind donated a work to benefit decent, affordable housing in our County.
