Long’s Gardens seeking conservation easement to preserve 25-acre Boulder property’s agricultural use - Boulder Daily Camera
It was in the 1970s that a community group petitioned the Boulder City Council for a community garden. Long’s father offered to let the city lease part of his property. Growing Gardens took over the lease and the garden management about 20 years ago.
Long Gates, who has lived on the property her whole life, noted she and her husband don’t have children, so there’s no fourth generation to take over. And younger relatives aren’t lining up for the “every day, all year long commitment” of running a farm, she said.
“I feel like the two non profits (Community Gardens and the goat dairy) are the next generation,” she said. “That’s what’s going to work to carry on things. It’s an opportunity for people to get their hands in the dirt, to be outside. A lot of it is just getting people outside in nature and thinking about the natural world and the interconnectdness of things.”

More than spring flowers make city beautiful place to be
Spring arrived Monday. Along with the beautiful weather and colorful flowers, Boulder City is blossoming with the spirit of kindness and helping others.Though it was just before the start of the season, the weather Saturday was definitely springlike as the Senior Center of Boulder City held its Rock, Roll & Stroll to help raise funds for its Meals on Wheels program.While there was very little rocking, rolling or strolling, there was plenty of giving. Residents and businesses alike contributed to the event’s success, donating funds and services.Perhaps one of the most touching contributions was by four young home-schooled girls, who ranged in age from 3-9. They set up shop as the Petit 4 Bakery, offering a variety of homemade sweet treats.Having obtained donations to purchase the necessary ingredients, they were able to donate all the money they received that day to the cause. And plenty of people were in the giving spirit as they left their change on the table to be donated as well.At the same time, Lend A Hand held its second annual caregivers fair, where l...

Love, kindness should extend beyond Valentine's
Each year Boulder City, like many other Western locations, prepares to celebrate Valentine’s Day on Feb. 14, but have you ever wondered where this custom originated?
An informative article by Borgna Brunner, http://bit.ly/2kebYFe, describes how early Christians substituted their calendar and festivals onto existing pagan celebrations. Early European Christian churches were often built on top of pre-existing pagan spiritual sites, and many ancient, sacred springs and wells were renamed for Christian saints.
Borgna writes: “The holiday’s roots are in the ancient Roman festival of Lupercalia, a fertility celebration commemorated annually on February 15. Pope Gelasius I recast this pagan festival as a Christian feast day circa 496 declaring February 14 to be St. Valentine’s Day.”
Valentine’s customs vary but focus mostly on written words, flowers and sweets in multiple combinations. The Welsh carve intricate love spoons (a custom still carried out today). Victorians constructed delicate paper-art cards and pictures for thei... (Bouldercityreview)Aug 29, 2016

June Elizabeth Culpepper
April 24, 1931, to January 19, 2016
June Culpepper, known in Boulder City, as June Mason, passed away peacefully at the Boulder City Hospital on Tuesday, January 19, 2016, at the age of 84. She was born at home in Ponca City, Oklahoma, to Richard and May Marlow, a farming family. As a teen, she sold watermelons by the roadside, drove farm equipment including dirt trucks, and by high school was milking twenty cows by hand before and after school.
June attended Oklahoma State University but headed to Denver, Colorado, after three years of college. She used her excellent shorthand and typing skills to land a job at Continental Oil where she met Gene Mason. Together they started a life, eventually moving, with their daughters, Cynthia, Teresa, and Marlena, to Boulder City, Nevada, in 1962. They all lived in the little pink house across the street from the Boulder City Junior-Senior High School which allowed the girls to participate in all the wonderful activities Boulder City had to offer.

Fall Flower Show looks to grow garden clubs' membership
Succulent Society of Southern Nevada; the Growers Study Guild; the Las Vegas Flower Arrangers Guild; the Henderson-based Sunset Garden Club; and the Boulder City Garden Club.
According to the Nevada Garden Clubs newsletter, Linnea Miller Domz, who turned 102 in May, was a member of the Rose Garden Club, a group launched in Las Vegas in 1945 by Adeline Bartlett, when she discovered a National Gardener magazine on vacation. Domz was intrigued to learn there could be more to gardening than just the Rose Garden Club. She and her friend Hobby St. Dennis headed to a flower show school in Tucson, Ariz., and came back determined to become federated with the national organization. In 1963, clubs in Reno, Fallon, Ely, Caliente, Pioche and Las Vegas joined National Garden Clubs Inc., and Domz served as the Nevada Garden Clubs' first president.
Clubs continue to meet and add new members despite challenges.
"When the city renovated Lorenzi Park, they had us shut out for over two years, and we are trying to get the public back," said Las Vegas Iris Society president Aleta MacFarlane.
"Boy, did that affect us big time," Baltz said.
Even though her group won't have flowers in bloom at the fall show, MacFarlane said they plan to sell plants. Members stay active throughout the fall and winter. In fact, the dormant season is in some ways just as much fun. That's when it's safe to dig up and separate the rhizomes and share or swap plants.
During the Las Vegas Iris Society's October meeting, members Michael and Christine Meagher brought in a tangle of mystery iris plants taken from an overgrown California garden, ready to share.
Michael Meagher showed them how to separate and trim the plants to prepare them for planting, spring bloom, and eventually, identification.
The club is big on identification and catalogs the varieties in each member's garden.
When spring heats up, and the iris bloom, members get the payoff for the fall planting.
"April is our busy, busy month," said member Darlene Waite. "That's when we do our yard tours and our judging and our flower show."
