Grand opening celebration including presentations from

Spadefoot Nursery has been opening up shop for what they call “soft opening” dates during the month of June. Starting in July they will be open 5 days a week, Wednesday through Sunday, 8am-4pm.

On Saturday, July 6 Spadefoot will be open for regular hours (8am-4pm), and then, starting at 7:30pm, will celebrate the grand opening with a small party, open to the public. Spadefoot Nursery founder Petey Mesquitey will do what Petey Mesquitey does. Owners Katy Gierlach and Jared McKinley will talk about the intentions and goals of the new nursery. During this evening, attendees will have a chance to chat with Judy Mielke, author of Native Plants for Southwestern Landscapes, and get their books signed. Carianne Campbell of Strategic Habitat Enhancements will talk about biodiversity and the work being done in urban areas to support pollinators. Robert Anthony Villa will entertain us with his violin.

Mostly we want to have a nice shindig to thank our supporters who helped us, in one year, begin to realize our vision.
