The Summer Garden Flower Fiesta – 2013

was a great success!  There were about 20 entrants and ALL of the bouquets were not only lovely but sold in the silent auction to benefit GMCR’s FM Matching fund.  AND the proceeds from the event pushed us past 50% of our $10,000 goal to receive that $10,000 Match!

We’d like to think that the Flower Fiesta was a help in attracting over 1,000 in attendance for the August 24 2013 market – a record!

The Mini classes on various aspects of gardening and flower cultivation were also a big hit along with the Kids activities.

Earth Matters / Gila Descending 30th Anniversary

In May 1983, avid hunter, fisherman, outdoorsman and writer, Dutch Salmon, made a 200 mile journey by foot and canoe down the Gila River from its headwaters at Bead Spring to the Solomon Dam in Arizona. This wasn't any old journey, since Dutch's companions were his hound dog, Rojo, and his tomcat.  This week's host Allyson Siwik, Executive Director of the Gila Resources Information Project and the Gila Conservation Coalition, […]
