September 2012: Steve Ledson donates a garden shed to Prestwood School
Aspiring gardeners in Kristi Draluck’s kindergarten class at Prestwood School are working
out of a new shed this year, thanks to a donation by Steve Ledson. After Draluck transformed
a neglected playground into a beautiful garden (complete with solar power, thanks to a PG&E
grant she pushed through), the blossoming garden needed a new storage space. Amee Scott was one
of the school parents on the lookout when she spotted a shed with a ‘for sale’ sign
in Armstrong Estates...

January 2009: King of the Castle, the Hard Work and Good Life of Steve Ledson
We are sitting at the counter of Superburger on Fourth Street in Santa Rosa. It's maybe not the
venue you'd expect for lunch with a multimillionaire tycoon who owns half a nearby city block,
two wineries, a construction company, several homes, a Mendocino ranch, a luxury hotel, a
philanthropic foundation and his very own castle. I’m having a medium-rare burger,
he’s having a cheeseburger, a cup of chili and a vanilla shake. The calories don’t
seem to concern him and there’s no tell tale roll beneath the crisp white T-shirt he’s
wearing with the blue jeans that almost look ironed. There’s an immaculately trimmed
moustache on his upper lip and not a hair is out of place on his carefully groomed head. He’s
