News for Week of March 23 - 28, 2009

Wednesday, April 22, Earth Day. We have been asked to participate in a booth/activity at the U of U and will need some help. Details are coming soon.

We have dropped the Heart of Holladay Garden Property since there were too many issues and changes to deal with i.e. rules, regulations, too many chiefs, etc.

We have acquired another garden property: Naniloa Garden. It is owned by my good friends Vicki and Brian Smoot. Besides all the delicious veggies we'll grow there, they also have plenty of grape vines AND apple, apricot, plum and peach trees near our garden that we'll receive.

Salt Lake Tribune Newspaper is planning to do a story on our Garden Group. I am currently a member of the SL Tribune "Money Matters" Panel (helping people save money on food). I've been telling my editor/writer friend about our group. She's excited to learn more about our group. I'll keep you posted.
