The Grayhawk Landscape Committee and DLC Resources encourage Grayhawk residents to give back to their community through the Plant it Forward program. Each year, Grayhawk homeowners can propagate plants in their own yards and donate them to the Association for DLC to use throughout the community during the spring planting season. Agave, prickly pear cactus, firestick…all examples of desert plants that an owner can easily remove pieces of to be grown throughout the community!
If you aren’t sure how to go about propagating a plant, you’re in luck! Landscape Committee Chairperson Arlene Smith and resident plant guru Victoria Kauzlarich (author of “Our Desert, Our Home” each month in The Grayhawk Flight) created a how-to video walking viewers through the easy steps of propagating various desert plants.
The Landscape Committee and DLC Resources hope that this program will grow year after year and that every spring, residents will get outside to enjoy the warm March sun on their face as they Plant It Forward.
