9-year-old boy earns praise for helping struggling flower vendor: ‘You are one awesome kid!’ - Yahoo Lifestyle
Stephanie when the two came across 57-year-old Israel Parra, who was selling flowers on the side of the road in Santa Ana. Reyes, a fifth grader, told the station that was when he noticed that Parra seemed to be having trouble in the heat with only one arm.“I felt really sad,” he said. “I really wanted to help him out.”When the boy later learned that Parra, who doesn’t have health insurance, was also struggling financially, he decided to take matters into his own hands and created a GoFundMe with a goal of raising $20,000.“It just stayed in my heart and it just made me sad, kept on thinking about it and I really wanted to help him out,” Reyes explained.The generous act caught Parra, who picks up bouquets six days a week from Lupita’s Flowers and tries to sell them, off guard. According to the station, the vendor had lost his arm in an accident in 1999 and initially sold ice cream with a prosthetic arm for a while.“I started selling ice cream, but it was too hard to push the cart with one arm, so I switched to selling flowers because they weren’t as heavy,” he explained.The vendor said he soon found his prosthetic arm to be cumbersome and has been selling flowers with one arm ever since. Now, Reyes is hoping to fix that by raising enough money to get Parra a new prosthetic that w... Sep 7, 2020
Watering and gardening tips for September - Irvine Standard
It’s hard to believe that summer is nearly over, but don’t let the September heat fool you about your garden.
The season’s hot, dry Santa Ana winds frequently send people turning up the dial on their irrigation cycles, thinking, “If I’m thirsty, my lawn must be, too.”
That’s the wrong approach to watering in the fall, and here’s why.
As the days grow shorter, plants start to go dormant, and they don’t need as much water. This is when their biological processes slow down. In fact, many deciduous plants will start to lose their leaves at this time of year.
What does that mean for your irrigation schedule?
September is the time to start turning down the dial and water less than you did in August – by 30%.
For the most effective watering schedule, we recommend multiple irrigation cycles of shorter periods to allow the water to soak in and penetrate the roots of your plants. For turfgrass, you might run three 3-minute cycles four days a week in August but only two 3-minute cycles in September.
And remember, just because your early summer flowers are finishing up, it doesn’t mean you can’t plant some fall favorites to be... Aug 3, 2020
Howard Dungan - Obituary - Legacy.com
American war effort and nearly enlisting in the Marine Corps, he instead joined the Army Air Forces. Training locations included, Santa Ana, California; Glendale, Arizona; Pecos, Texas; Douglas, Arizona; and Greenville, South Carolina as First Station. In the South andTexas he became more aware of deeper issues of racial inequality than he'd seen in Nebraska, where his family sometimes hosted a visiting African Methodist Episcopal (AME) minister for lunch, and he strove to treat everyone fairly throughout his life. In the chapel on base in Pecos, Texas he married Anita Alene Sibbitt, an accomplished violinist who had graduated from what is now the University of Nebraska at Kearney and taught high school for a year in Yutan,Nebraska. She followed Howard around the country for much of his pilot training, working variously as a butcher's helper, nurse's aid, and store clerk.Howard was later stationed in Hawaii, flying North American B-25 Mitchells. While he was flying missions in B-25s as a First Lieutenant in the 7th Air Force, 41st Bombardment Group, 820th Bomb Squadron out of Okinawa over Japan and Japanese-occupied China, Anita had become a "Rosie the Riveter" and learned gas welding at Ryan Aeronautical in San Diego.After the war she resumed teaching and then guidance counseling, and completed her master's degree at what is now San Diego State University. Howard also completed his bachelor's degree there on the G.I. Bill, and later his master's degree. Both did post-graduate work at the University of Southern California.From 1948 to 1984 Howard was a teacher and guidance counselor in the San Diego Unified School District, with most of that time at Theodore Roosevelt Junior High School (now Roosevelt International Middle School) where he primarily taught geography, social studies, and history, sometimes with what was referred to as a "Mr. Dungan story." Years into retirement, he would still run into former students greeting him and saying, "Mr. Dungan, you told the dumbestjokes and stories!" Howard would ask which one; the former student would repeat it and the context, and then he would reply, "Ah, but you remembered!"Howard and Anita loved to play golf at the Tijuana Country Club and Balboa Park Golf Course, were once active in the Methodist Church in La Mesa, and had a custom home built in Spring Valley where they resided until they passed. They vacationed in Mexico City, and traveled extensively throughout the U.S. and Canada with a succession of travel trailers. These trips were later accompanied by their only child, Michelle Dungan, now a retired California Department of Transpor... Mar 19, 2020

Ever wonder where they get the gorgeous flowers bordering the paths at Disneyland? Landscape architect John Schoustra grows them for big landscape jobs, but he invites the public to view and/or buy some on Saturdays from April 4 through the end of June. Greenwood’s day lilies, irises, geraniums and other flowers used to be grown in the ground, organized by color. Now they’re grown in pots. “So the gophers and the weeds can’t get them,” says Schoustra, who’s proud to sell the only scented lilacs that will bloom in Southern California.Info: 8000 Balcom Canyon Road, Somis, Calif.; greenwoodgarden.comOtto & Sons Nursery

Here's an easy landscaping guide to the best native plants - Los Angeles Times
National Park Service to work with other native plant promoters in Southern California: the Tree of Life Nursery in San Juan Capistrano, Rancho Santa Ana Botanic Garden in Claremont and the Santa Barbara Botanic Garden in Santa Barbara.The grant provided a facilitator, Patrick Johnston, “who was the soul of patience,” said Lili Singer, director of special projects at Theodore Payne. “Getting everybody to agree on a list of plants was a game-stopper for me, but he helped us step by step through the process. We hoped it would take 18 months, but from the time of our first conference call to the time the finished cards arrived, it took three years.”Ultimately the group decided to create a series of flash cards “about the size and shape of an iPhone 6,” said Mike Evans, founder of the Tree of Life Nursery. “They’re like a deck of cards with a hole punched in the corner, and a ring to hold them together, but you can take them apart and spread them out on a table to see what plants go with other plants. They don’t replace a website or great books on the shelf; they’re just easier to carry around and use for planning.”Singer wrote most of the text, with editing and contributions by Evans. And Carlos Flores, a Theodore Payne volunteer and National Park Service employee, created the design and made all the translations into Spanish.
The organizers “had quite a lively discussion about whether the text should also be in Spanish,” Connolly said. “There was pushback from people who wanted more info about each plant in English, but the landscape industry in Southern California is largely staffed with people who speak Spanish. We wanted to create a way for everyone to be able to talk about these native plants.”This way, she said, the cards provide a bridge for Spanish-speaking gardeners and their English-speaking clients to more easily discuss the kinds of native plants they want to add to the yard.And while the cards are relatively small, they pack a lot of information. You can tell at a glance how tall and wide a particular plant will grow, when it blooms, how quickly it grows, what birds and animals it attracts and how much water and sun it needs to thrive.The cards aren’t a definitive list of Southern California native plants. They don’t include milkweed, for instance. But the decision was to create an entry-level guide that features some of the showiest plants in the native palette. “Milkweed is a very important habitat plant but it’s not much of a looker,” Connolly said. “We were going for the ...

Cooperative Garden Promotes Food Self-Determination for Santa Ana - VoiceofOC
By Laura Bleiberg October 25, 2019
349 SharesIt’s a blue-sky, crystalline morning in this Santa Ana garden and the butterflies swirling just above the vegetable stalks and over-sized leaves complete the enchanted spectacle.
There are some chile peppers on the vines, upright kale leaves and scattered fruits. But it is fall, after all, and the growing season is coming to an end. The rows of vegetable beds look a little wild, a little overgrown.
The volunteers who run the CRECE Cooperative Garden are going to let the soil rest until spring. So even though, for the past three years they’ve provided cempaspuchitl – Mexican marigolds – for Día de los Muertos altars, they won’t have any of the flowers available this week. But don’t worry, they say. They will next year. And they have other plans. Big plans.
JULIE LEOPO, Voice of OCCRECE is currently replenishing their soil this year. Members of the co-op are clearing out the garden beds.
The CRECE Cooperative Garden has been supported by the Santa Ana Building Healthy Communities initiative, which was launched nine years ago with a...
