The Garden Guy: Sick Trees

"The immune systems of tree's, which are kept in a stable, stress-free, condition is able to resist the infestation of insects and microbes, and there are simple, all organic, ways in which you may maintain the health of your tree's. The first thing you must do is to stop using chemical pesticides and fertilizers high in nitrogen. The chemical pesticides will kill the beneficial microbes, nematodes, and insects, which actually help maintain balance within the tree. High nitrogen fertilizers will not properly feed your trees, will contaminate soil, and will also destroy the chemistry of the tree's soil. You will instead want to turn to all organic products, which will properly feed your tree while working with the beneficial insects, nematodes, and microbes. To begin, I suggest foliar feeding, which involves spraying the leaves, limbs, twigs, and trunk with Extreme Juice once a month. Compost tea, which is made by soaking or steeping compost in water, works well as a fertilizer and can be applied as a soil drench. Finally, cornmeal will assist in fighting diseases in your trees."

Brain Tumor Walk

When research pointed out that this particular disease was becoming the number one cancer killer of teenagers, a decision was made to do something about it.

Their goal is to raise money for brain tumor research, 

There will be lots of activities during walkathon:
Food, drinks, Live music and a silent auction with more than 200 items which often include gift cards to restaurants and businesses across valley.
