Urban Habitat Community Weed Pluck

This week sponsored by: Utah Native Plant Society

Urban Habitat began in 2012 as a proactive task force to control invasive and noxious weeds. Join us! Help save our precious foothills from the encroaching noxious weeds, learn about the ecology, classification, and diversity of plants and wildlife in our ecosystem and meet great people.  Participation in events with Urban Habitat is voluntary for improving plant habitat in the urban-wildland interface in the foothills of Salt Lake Valley. For participation on the weed plucks we require gloves, closed-toed footwear, long pants, a University release form, and water. We also encourage participants to bring long-sleeved shirts, shade hats, sunscreen, and a snack.

Meeting destination for the group will be determined prior to each event as notified through the groups distribution email list the Urban Habitat Website and our Facebook Page.

Please contact Neal Dombrowski at neal.dombrowski@redbutte.utah.edu to be added to the email distribution list for updates and changes.


Arbor Day Celebration

As Utah’s very own arboretum, we can't wait to share the wonderful world of trees with you. Due to the generous support of Rocky Mountain Power, join us for a fun day of activities and leave with a free tree to take home (while supplies last). Thanks to funding in part by Salt Lake County Zoo, Arts, and Parks Program (ZAP) Arbor Day is a ZAP Free Day! Everyone enjoys free Garden admission.


All About Tomatoes

Calling all tomato lovers, newbie growers and seasoned gardeners alike! This fun-filled class is designed to help you increase the variety, productivity, health and flavor of this versatile summer favorite. We'll learn how to "talk tomato" and decipher all the lingo on tomato plant tags, which will help you select the best varieties for your individual garden site and your cooking/eating preferences. We'll also talk about tips and tricks for boosting the productivity of the tomatoes in your garden and review some common tomato pests and diseases. This workshop is a "tomatoes A - Z" and is a perfect prelude to tomato-growing season! Please bring your best tomato secrets and favorite varieties to share with the group.
