All About Gardens & Trees at June Meeting

Like UHCA on Facebook!

Our UHCA meeting on June 1st will feature the following speakers:

* Julie Engel will speak about her vertical garden hydroponic “Tower Garden” growing system, which is used to grow vegetables in small spaces efficiently, without soil.

* Katie Buess, a graduate student in a joint program of Miami University and the Zoological Society of San Diego will discuss the topic of water conservation, landscaping choices for drought situations, and the various government rebate programs available to residents.

* Michelle Fenwick will then present her report on the next steps for Tree Mapping in University Heights. Your input is still needed, especially those of you living in Zones 4, 5, and 6. You can help Michelle complete her map and move forward with the City of San Diego’s Urban Forestry program.

In addition, historic images of the former Mission Cliff Gardens, which was the precursor to Balboa Park and a city-wide destination on weekends when the trolleys ran up Park Boulevard, will be on display. We look forward to seeing you there!

Note that this is the last meeting before our summer break. Our next UHCA meeting will be September 7.
