PRESIDENT’S LETTER: Meet New Board Member In Charge Of Membership – Debby Dunn!

By Karen England, for Let’s Talk Plants! April 2023.

Please welcome Debby Dunn to our board as Membership Coordinator.

The SDHS board unanimously voted Debby Dunn in as Membership Coordinator at the last board meeting on March 20, 2023. She is finishing Ken Kubarych’s current term as Membership Coordinator which became an open position when Ken switched to being SDHS Board Secretary over a year ago. Her three-year term will begin in September.

Recently Debby moved to Carlsbad from Los Angeles, and she is now working as the Water Resources Specialist at the San Diego County Water Authority.

She was involved with the Southern California Horticulture Society while in LA and immediately joined the SDHS upon moving to San Diego County.

She is a 15-year master gardener and has taught hundreds of water wise landscaping workshops over the past 20 years and has organized several garden tours. She specializes in water conservation and is a plant and irrigation expert.

Debby LOVES gardens and sustainable landscapes and wants to be part of our group that educates and promotes beautiful, waterwise, flower-full gardens and all the wonderful benefits they bring to humans, wildlife and the environment!

Debby is a refreshing dynamo whose degree, training and passion are all about the environment and will work diligently to build up our post-covid SDHS memberships.

Fun fact: Debby Dunn knows and has worked previously with Karon De Leon, who is our Volunteer Coordinator board member. Karon worked for the City of San Dimas from 1997 - 2019 and that's where their work paths crossed before, and now they are serving on the same board in San Diego - what a small world!
