  • Field Trips – 2022

  • Each field trip may or may not have a fee. That will be determined based on where we are going. If the field trip requires carpooling, we will meet at a designated parking lot, KC or OC, and a $$ donation to the driver will be asked for on the application, then given in cash to the driver.

    Applications will be e-mailed, be online, or at one of our meetings when we are able to meet. If you are new to the club and have not signed a waiver, you will need one sent to you. Until we are able to meet at Kilaga, please e-mail me, Vicki White- weimarwoman@yahoo.com and let me know that you will be attending a field trip then give me your application at the destination.

    Troll Knoll 1992

    In the beginning, there was fire.

    The mountain that Troll Knoll resides on was engulfed in the 49er fire. On September 11, 1988 the 49er Fire started in Nevada County and quickly became the third most destructive fire in state history. The fire ultimately burned 33,700 acres, for a total of 53 square miles.

    In 1992, we purchased the 20 acres and started building our home.

    After our home was finished, we started working on the garden. The first vignette that I built was the high heel walk. It was built with love for my wife, Ann, so that when she returned home from work, she’d have a serene and beautiful place to unwind.

    Yes, over the next 20 years, we created 119 vignettes on our 20 acres…and we did it ourselves.
