Here is some recent CobraHead news that I want to share.  Anneliese was elected to the Mailorder Gardening Association Board of Directors.  The Mailorder Gardening Association has been an excellent organization for CobraHead.  Many of the major garden catalog firms are members and are our customers.  We have been active with MGA since we joined and now Anneliese will get to be involved in a lot of MGA planning.  We know it will help her in learning more about the garden industry, and we’re quite sure she will contribute a lot to the organization.  Here is the press release we sent out to announce her election:

Anneliese Valdes Elected to MGA Board of Directors

Cambridge, WI   October 14, 2010

Anneliese Valdes, Vice-President of CobraHead LLC, www.cobrahead.com, has been recently elected to serve on the Mailorder Gardening Association’s Board of Directors for 2010-2011.

The Mailorder Gardening Association, www.mailordergardening.com, is a member organization of mailorder gardening and garden magazine companies. The ultimate goal of the MGA is to provide the finest gardening products, information, and service through the catalogs and magazines of its members.

Said Noel Valdes of CobraHead LLC, “Anneliese brings a younger perspective to the Mailorder Gardening Association at a time when the gardening industry as a whole struggles to reach out to the Generation Y gardening population.”

The organization meets twice annually to discuss and implement ways to make mailorder shopping for garden products successful for consumers. The MGA also sponsors a garden grant program for school age children to introduce them to the joys of gardening and the values it instills.

CobraHead LLC developed the CobraHead Weeder and Cultivator and markets that garden tool as well as other products geared towards organic home gardeners and small-scale vegetable growers.
