Roy H. Wilburn, Director of Horticulture

In June of 2010, Roy Wilburn was hired as Sunshine Care’s Director of Horticulture. You can usually find him in one of the five organic gardens, producing high quality organic fruits and vegetables for the residents and those in need in the Poway area. Roy’s other responsibilities include maintaining Sunshine Care’s beautiful greenhouse, fruit tree orchards, Memorial Rose Garden and the landscaping of its 32-acre facility. As a Master Composter, Roy handles the compost and vermiculture programs. Twice a month, he is with local home-schooled children and residents, directing the Sunshine Care Garden Club’s “Seed to Table” program. In this program, the children learn all aspects of growing organic fruits and vegetables in their own “Children’s Garden” Included in this program are Sunshine Care residents who the children refer to as their “Grandmas and Grandpas.” Sunshine Care also offers a series of free garden lectures and workshops once a month. Roy and guest speakers cover a wide variety of horticultural issues pertaining to the particular time of year.
