Meeting to be held at 5:30 at Nature’s Touch Nursery and Harvest in Templeton

–Local Paso Robles and Templeton residents are gathering this evening regarding the recent deforestation in west Paso Robles by Justin Winery.

The meeting will be held Monday, June 13 at 5:30 p.m. at Nature’s Touch Nursery & Harvest, located at 225 South Main Street in Templeton. There will be more images presented showing the deforestation by Justin Winery on multiple properties, and speakers. All are welcome to attend.

Matt Trevison, owner and winemaker at Linne Calodo released the following statement regarding the meeting:

While I much prefer to see you at social gatherings, this is a call to action to maintain the community we have built and will continue to build.

On this coming Monday, June 13 at 5:30 p.m., we are gathering at Nature’s Touch Nursery & Harvest located at 225 South Main Street in Templeton. The purpose of this meeting is to gather support for creating a county ordinance to protect oak trees and groundwater in our community. We are already conscientious consumers, but that is not enough anymore; it is time for us to be active citizens of our community and come together to protect our natural resources.

First things first: We are not proposing to diminish your property rights in any way. We are trying to protect them. What has happened in our area recently is an exploitation of the long time residents of Paso Robles and Templeton under the guise of agriculture.

Let’s work together to show our true colors as a community of mindful individuals. We must protect our oaks, our water, our neighbors, and everyone’s right to live and farm responsibly within our community. We look forward to setting a positive example and leading the way in this effort.
