Live music with The Poppees, a Salt Lake City band drenched in vocal harmonies, electrified guitars and a whirlwind of drum beats and horns.

National Gardening Day is Sunday. So Aldine convened an all-organic panel for tonight's #UrbanFarmReport:

  • Shad Stagl of Stagl Organics, which grows vegetables organically here in the Salt Lake valley and provides weekly food shares to members of its CSA and to restaurants. Click here to sign up for a whole- or half-share.
  • Gary Hirshberg, Chief Organic Optimist at Stonyfield Organic. He’s in town to host a Field Day at the Salt Lake Regional Athletic Complex, 2280 N. Rose Park Lane, SLC, Saturday, April 13, from 11a-2p. Tons of fun and activities for the kids AND FREE!
    • At 1pm Mayor Jackie Biskupski will receive a donation of $5,000 from Stonyfield Organic to support the Pesticide Free SLC program. It will be used to convert two fields at the RAC to organic land care maintenance methods. The company will also pledge an additional $40,000 to cover technical services to implement and identify best management practices that could be scaled up at the RAC, with the goal of making it the first sports complex in the nation with professional-grade fields being maintained through organic maintenance practices.
    • In addition to yogurt sampling and a variety of fun-filled family activities, representatives from Stonyfield, including co-founder and Chief Organic Optimist, Gary Hirshberg; the Salt Lake City Sustainability Department; Salt Lake City Parks & Public Lands Division; and members of the Utah Physicians for a Healthy Environment group will be on hand to celebrate the program and help educate local residents.
