Paul Althouse: Dedicated to Gamble’s mission since 1992

Retired nursery owner Paul Althouse has been named the Ambassador for this year’s Annual Appeal.

A living legend at Gamble, Paul began volunteering for Gamble in 1992 and kept Gamble’s Cutting Garden in pristine shape for decades. Paul’s Cutting Garden has supplied Gamble Floral Arrangers with an abundance of gorgeous fresh blooms for the arrangements that decorate the Main House and the arrangements donated to various community organizations.

Paul’s gardening experience dates back to his childhood, growing up on a citrus farm in the San Joaquin Valley. He was in the nursery business for sixty-five years, running the popular Redwood City Nursery before selling it in 2014. Well into his retirement years, Paul continued to volunteer at Gamble working many hours each week. Until recently, Paul was a constant presence in the garden. The sight of Paul on his hands and knees, trowel and shovel nearby, was a familiar one to any visitor who happened to walk by the Cutting Garden on any given day.

Recently retired from active volunteering, Paul is still a generous financial supporter of Gamble. His gifts of time, talent, and resources make Paul a true Gamble treasure, beloved by the entire Gamble community. Paul’s thirty years of volunteer work in Gamble’s Cutting Garden are an inspiring example of dedication to a cause, service to the community, and love for Gamble.
