“We have speakers set up and will be playing music,” said Eden. “We will intermittently have dance contests.” Music will include a mix of Hispanic and popular American music. Bachata (from the Dominican Republic, with indigenous African and European musical elements), Cumbia (folkloric rhythm and dance considered “the backbone of Latin American music” by NPR), and Payaso del Rodeo (incredibly fast line dancing which one YouTuber depicted as “Not your typical electric slide, more like electrocuted slide”) are all on the musical menu. Younger children will enjoy the face painting and balloon animals offered. The event takes place at GHS and runs from 4:30-7:30 p.m., preceding the evening’s soccer game against cross-town rival Hunter High School. Saturday, May 4 -Taylorsville ties tree planting with Cinco de Mayo Millrace Park, Taylorsville, 1150 W. 5400 South Fresh off hosting last month’s highly engaging “First Latino Town Hall” featuring the state’s Lieutenant Governor Spencer Cox and other representatives discussing politics — often in fluid, elegant Spanish — with citizens, the city of Taylorsville presents a Cinco de Mayo-themed tree-planting event where children can learn the benefits of ecological stewardship and cultural exchange.

The first 40 children on site will receive pots and seeds to grow their own mini-gardens. All will help plant eight new trees in the park. The City asks that volunteers bring their own shovels and gloves to help plant the trees. Cinco de Mayo piñatas take center stage at 10:30 a.m. The event offers complimentary snacks and music entertainment. Taylorsville is 20.8 percent Hispanic, and this blended event is a great way to honor the city’s cultural diversity. Event organized and executed by the Taylorsville Parks and Recreation Committee and Cultural Diversity Committee. Sunday, May 5, Park City Culinary Institute, 1484 S.

scapes all start with the foundation of quality, nutrient-rich soil. While that is easy to say, it is much more complicated to sort through the numerous companies that all claim to sell the best. Whether you are starting a new flower garden, or growing your own fruits and vegetables, Replenish Landscape Garden Products is here to help make your gardening goals a reality. Replenish (the compost) and Replenish the Earth Products (the company) were created by Connie Cannon in 1994 in the driveway of her home. She wanted to create a compost/mulch that would be high in nutrients, low in salts, as well as dark and rich in appearance. After seeking counsel from Peter Lassig, who had been the head landscape architect at Temple Square for over 40 years, she came up with the superior formula and blend for Replenish Compost. Mixing it together in her driveway, she would have her children put the compost in bags and sell it in their neighborhood. “Whether you are picking up material at our yard, or having us deliver or install material in your yard, the service is always outstanding and to your satisfaction. As our customer, we have your best interest in mind,”

said Mike Nitz, the current co-owner. The Cannons sold the company 10 years later to the current owners, Mike Nitz and Greg Bettinson. After purchasing the company in 2004, Mike and Greg gave it a new name – Replenish Landscape Garden Products – to better describe what the business was all about. They also moved the business from West Valley City to its current location in Murray, at 4660 S. 200 West. Over the past 15 years, they have grown the business by expanding the variety of landscape materials offered and expanding their customer base to cover the entire Wasatch Front. “There are a number of options when it comes to landscape materials, but they are not all created equal,” explained Greg. “We believe that in Replenish Compost we have the finest and most versatile compost available, period. To complement our signature Replenish Compost product, we have made it our focus to develop, or find, the very best soil blends, barks, mulches and materials available in the industry. Quality is what we sell.” Any of Replenish’s products can be picked up at their Murray yard, in either bulk or bag. They also deliver in bag, bulk, or in
