Young people engaged in their communities and organizations in meaningful ways are more likely to be civically involved and philanthropically inclined throughout their lives. Youth also have considerable knowledge and energy they can give to better their communities if encouraged to do so. However, society often does not value these contributions and it is a challenge to find or create opportunities to involve youth in authentic and meaningful community roles.

This is a summary of what we learned from our 2001 tomato project in regards to tomato staking methods. We grew just over a hundred varieties of mostly heirloom tomatoes at the now closed University of California Bay Area Research and Extension Center facility in the City of Santa Clara. Wire Mesh Cages This method is composed of a series of reinforced cement wire mesh cylinders of graduated diameters. Cylinders vary by 6-inches in circumference to enable three or more cages to be nested one inside another for efficient storage purposes.

home of a gazillion plants Aphids Aphids are small, soft-bodied insects with long, slender mouth parts that they use to pierce stems, leaves, and other tender plant parts and suck out plant fluids. Almost every plant has one or more aphid species that occasionally feeds on it. Many aphid species are difficult to distinguish; however, identification to species is not necessary to control them in most situations. Aphids may be green, yellow, brown, red, or black depending on the species and the plants they feed on.
Scale insects / RHS Gardening Advice Scales are limpet-like insects that feed by sucking sap from a wide range of plants, including houseplants, greenhouse plants and many fruit and ornamental plants grown outdoors. Scale insects weaken plants and some excrete a sticky substance (honeydew) on foliage, which allows the growth of black, sooty moulds. What are scale insects? There are many different species of scale insects that attack cultivated plants.
