We need your help.

Newspapers and media companies nationwide are closing or suffering mass layoffs since the coronavirus impacted all of us starting in March. City Weekly's entire existence is directly tied to people getting together in groups--in clubs, restaurants, and at concerts and events--which are the industries most affected by new coronavirus regulations.

Our industry is not healthy. Yet, City Weekly has continued publishing thanks to the generosity of readers like you. Utah needs independent journalism more than ever, and we're asking for your continued support of our editorial voice. We are fighting for you and all the people and businesses hardest hit by this pandemic.

You can help by making a one-time or recurring donation on, which directs you to our Galena Fund 501(c)(3) non-profit, a resource dedicated to help fund local journalism. It is never too late. It is never too little. Thank you. DONATE

Joy Bossi: Joy in Your Garden

Saturday June 19


You’d love to turn your yard into a home for beautiful flowers and abundant vegetables, but a spring like this one, with its constantly fluctuating weather conditions, is enough to intimidate any amateur. When do you begin? How do you begin? And how do you turn that black thumb green?

Utah native Joy Bossi regularly helps Wasatch Front residents with just such dilemmas on KRNS 105.7 every Saturday morning on Joy in the Garden. Now, she has collected much of her horticultural wisdom in the new book Joy in Your Garden: A Seasonal Guide to Gardening, co-authored with Karen Bastow. Bossi and Bastow guide would-be home gardeners through what to do at every turning of the year. Join Bossi for a discussion and signing event for the book, complete with back-patio gardening demonstration.
