GREATER NILES VILLAGE OPENS MEMBERSHIP
Greater Niles Village (GNV) is a vibrant community of neighbors along Mission Boulevard. We share our skills and support to navigate the challenges and opportunities of aging. Greater Niles Villagers believe a better experience of aging is possible when we can grow with and rely on each other.
NOT A PLACE, BUT AN IDEA
Villages are dedicated to positively impacting health and interdependence by assisting members to form social networks and secure practical assistance to age safely and successfully in their own communities. Like the 350 Villages across the US, GNV’s members enjoy stronger community connections, less isolation, increased independence and enhanced purpose of life. In Villages, older adults are empowered to remain in charge of their lives.
BUILT BY OUR MEMBERS, FOR OUR MEMBERS
GNV is a non-profit, member-supported organization led by a Board of Directors. Greater Niles Villagers will determine what we do and design how we do it. There are many opportunities:
- organize and enjoy social activities based on our interests;
- provide and participate in educational programs;
- develop and utilize GNV’s screened list of businesses and service providers;
- design and provide a selection of individualized services; and
- coordinate community volunteers.
Membership fees and participation will make this happen.
Through membership, each Village uniquely connects its older adults to the community, programs, and expertise they specifically need to continue living lives of purpose and promise. Join us to make GNV a true reflection of its members, a purposeful and powerful space for learning, laughter, and courage as we take on the future. Become a paid member in GNV’s inaugural year and demonstrate your commitment to having a Village in Greater Niles.

California Nursery Historical Park
Members only event
Become an inaugural-year paid member to take part in this truly historic event at the Vallejo Adobe in California Nursery Historical Park. Enjoy walk-away sundaes and hear George Roeding speak about his fascinating history with the California Nursery Company and the contributions of his amazing family to horticulture. Their vast holdings throughout the state included citrus, fig, and olive orchards in southern California as well as several growing fields in the Central Valley. The Company provided trees and exhibits worldwide, helping to propel the nursery to become the largest in the West Coast. The story of the California Nursery spans over a century, involves great personalities such as Jose de Jesus Vallejo, John Rock, George Roeding, and Luther Burbank, and includes historical events such as the 1893 Columbia Exposition, development of Golden Gate Park, the 1915 Panama-Pacific International Exposition, and the Golden Gate International Expositions of 1939 and 1940.
