1995 ORCHIDS & ONIONS CONTEST THEME: "LOVE THY NEIGHBORHOOD"


The nonprofit Orchids & Onions program is celebrating its 20th year of community consciousness-raising to encourage quality design and sensitive urban planning. Some of this year's awards went to projects that help (or failed to help) disadvantaged people in the access to public buildings.. The jury also rewarded historic preservation successes.

Proceeds from the 1995 program went to benefit the Tijuana-San Diego chapter of Habitat for Humanity, an international group that helps poor people build their own homes. $15,000 was raised.
