Today will be dandy

Dear Editor:

Thanks to Carbondale’s Trina Ortega, locals will be sporting the dandiest new design on their T-shirts for the 11th Annual Dandelion Day. In all her spare time, Trina came up with the winning design for this year’s T-shirt contest. Thanks to all the artists who submitted groovy designs for our annual T-shirt contest.

Dandelion Day will be held today in downtown Carbondale. The day celebrates Carbondale’s commitment to not use chemical herbicides on town parks. This year, the day starts with a Crystal River cleanup hosted by the Roaring Fork Conservancy ( We will have a Community Flea Market, farmers with flowers and veggie starts, live music, workshops on the dandelion, mountain pine beetle and planting backyard gardens. There is also the annual compost contest and the “Parade of the Species” down Main Street beginning at 11 a.m.

Stacy Stein

and the Carbondale Environmental Board
