The City of Glendale's Commission on Person's with Disabilities, which I am Chairperson, through Parks N Partners, will be sponsoring a winter pruning of the 60 roses at:

  Pruning Elsie McCarthy Sensory Garden
on Saturday Feb. 7th from 8am to12noon.

 I am asking for volunteers to help prune this rose garden. The roses seem to be in pretty good shape considering they don't get the TLC that SRP gets. If you do not know how to prune the roses at this time of year, I will show you how.  This will be a low key "event"...no workshops etc...just pruning. If you have pruners, please bring them.  The City will provide water, pruners, rakes trash bags and maybe some snacks, we'll see.   

The park is located at 7637 55th Ave. --Just south of Northern on 55th Ave. 

It is located next door to the fire station (which is now used for storage) on the east side of 55th Ave. and north of Orangewood. 

Any questions, please contact me. (602) 920-1697  Laura Hirsch

170 more rose bushes to Sahuaro Ranch Park!!!
We are needing help to plant rose bushes......

  Tyler Francis has graciously donated 170 more rose bushes to Sahuaro Ranch Park. We need help planting them and would appreciate if everyone who is able to come out and help. The holes will already be dug so it is just a matter of getting them in the ground. The planting will be on Saturday, January 24, 2015 from 8:00am to ????. Tyler is not able to bring a crew this year so it will be volunteers and probably 1 or 2 people from the city. There is also going to be a big event with over 200 media and 200 volunteers planting fruit trees that day. The rose garden is not part of that as it is being marketed by the NFL for the Super Bowl but maybe we will get a few people drifting over to the garden.
We appreciate any help we can get and if we have a good turn out it shouldn't take too long.

Everyone needs to park in the far west lot as they are saving the front parking lot for the media.
Thanks in advance for your help.

If you have any questions, please contact me:  602 920-1697  Laura Hirsch


Arrow Exterminators Lists Insects We Should All Appreciate


ATLANTA (October 8,  2014) – Fall is in the air; preparations are underway for the coming holiday seasons and while the professionals at Arrow Exterminators focus primarily on protecting customers’ from harmful pests, it is the perfect time of year to show some thanks for very beneficial pests. 


·        Ladybugs: Ladybugs are always at the top of the list!  Not only do they bring good luck, they are very beneficial for homeowners with gardens, feeding on aphids which are harmful to plants. Avid gardeners even purchase ladybugs to add to their garden as an easy, affordable and sustainable solution to keep real pests away.  


·        Big Eyed Bugs: Aptly named due to their proportionately large eyes, big-eyed bugs are another beneficial predator that feeds on mites, insect eggs and small insects.  Big-eyed bug nymphs can eat as many as 1600 spider mites before reaching adulthood and adults eat as many as 80 mites per day.


·        Dragonflies: If you don’t like mosquitoes – and who does, then dragonflies should definitely be on your list of beneficial bugs!  This beautiful four-winged flyer, that hasn’t changed since dinosaurs roamed the earth, usually takes up residence in common mosquito breeding areas and then feeds on them helping control the local population.  Mother Nature definitely got this one right!


·        Honeybees: “There are so many reasons to be thankful for this insect,” said Charlie Jones, Arrow Pest Expert. “They are very social in nature and they not only produce a sweet treat we all enjoy, they pollinate beautiful flowers and more than 100 different crops across the United States, including apples, squash, soybeans and nuts.”
