Volunteers Sought to Help Restore Foothill Open Space

First planting day of the new year to be held from 9 a.m.-noon Saturday at closed landfill.

The Foothill Open Space restoration’s first community planting day of 2009 will be held from 9 a.m. to noon Saturday at the Growing Solutions Nursery, across from the South Coast Recycling and Transfer Station, 4430 Calle Real.

The event is co-sponsored by Santa Barbara County’s Resource Recovery and Waste Management Division and the Growing Solutions Restoration Education Institute. The project is aimed at restoring native plants to approximately seven acres of the now-closed Foothill landfill and is funded by the state Department of Parks and Recreation with matching funds from the county.

The community is invited to participate in the restoration efforts and enjoy refreshments provide by 2nd District Supervisor Janet Wolf.

Additional planting days will be held through March or April.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
