Dear friends & family,

Weekly Reader below. Anything you want to do? We'll be at the Avenues Street Festival, and at Wasatch Community Gardens' fall plant sale and garden party.

The September CATALYST is on the newsstands, or you can read it by clicking here. Read about the Sugarhood homestead built by James and Michelle Loomis; how to make bokashi compost; considering carp for dinner; yoga; the upcoming performing dance season; climate change Action Camp; and more.

Also, our advertisers are your neighbors. If you need what they offer, please support them. And we'd love it if you let them know you saw them in CATALYST!
