Time: Join Dunbar/Spring neighbors Brad Lancaster, Omar Ore-Giron, Ezra Roati, Rocky Yosek and others at7:30 am for a planting demonstration, then keep going to various parts of the neighborhood. The demonstration will show you how to plant the rain to maximize its potential, how to plant food-bearing native trees by seed and/or with nursery stock to maximize passive summer shading/cooling, and how to recycle/plant prunings and leaves as fertility-building/carbon-sequestering/pollutant-filtering/water-harvesting mulch. Check the blackboard on the porch at the meeting spot if you want to join in on the planting later in the morning—we’ll leave a note with an idea of the morning’s planting route. End time of noon is approximate. Meeting spot: 813 N 9th Ave, Tucson AZ 85705
