The Dunbar/Spring Neighborhood will be having another “Chipped & Mulchy” day before the Brush and Bulky pickup beginning February 4th.
Sign up by January 27 to be included in free chipping on February 1. If you want to participate you must sign up here. We need to keep track for the chipping contractor and must have a complete list by the January 27th, so make sure to sign up by then.
Why: To learn how to properly prune native trees AND to trim our Dunbar/Spring right-of-way trees, making the neighborhood a better place. Trimmings will be chipped into soil enhancement for the same trees!
Where: Dunbar/Spring Community Garden
(11th Ave. & University Blvd.)
In partnership with the Watershed Management Group and the Community Food Bank, students and staff from the UofA’s Bureau of Applied Research in Anthropology (BARA) are seeking to better understand how Tucsonans use, and would like to use, the outdoor spaces at their homes and in their neighborhoods. We also seek to better understand Tucsonans' ideas and beliefs about southwestern landscapes and what types of landscapes should be supported in our community.
17th Annual Dunbar/Spring Neighborhood Tree Planting
Green your yard and help green our streets with native, food-bearing shade trees
that help cool neighborhood temperatures in summer; attract native song birds; reduce downstream flooding; beautify our community; sequester carbon; and
clean our air, water, and soil.
Thanks to everyone who participated in the pruning workshop and subsequent pruning work around the neighborhood! Over 15 people participated in the workshop and pruning of tree in the garden and elsewhere.
Also thanks to the large number of people trimming their own yard and right-of-way trees who signed up to have their trimmings turned into mulch to enhance soils in our neighborhood.
Come out and help prune Dunbar/Spring's street trees and mulch our water-harvesting basins and soils!
Learn the ropes through this free pruning workshop and work party led by Brad Lancaster and Gary Wittwer of the City of Tucson. Keep trees healthy; learn about native, edible, and wildlife friendly plants, and water harvesting; provide mulch for healthy soils; all while beautifying the neighborhood, and making pedestrian walkways clear and walkable.
