Saguaros are one of the natural treasures of Arizona. These georgous plants take many years to grow tall into stately beauties with arms. They are not inexpensive to buy. Saguaros have been stolen in the past few years from state land and national parks and are being sold to homeowners and landscapers. To prevent this, Arizona has implemented a program to insert a microchip into cactus which can be detected with a special wand. To read more about this microchip program and to learn more about Saguaros visit our GoldCanyon.net blog.

Gold Canyon Arizona has a unique group of artists. This year, for the second year, the group is planning a unique artists tour on November 1st and 2nd, 2008. The uniqueness of the tour is that the artists invite touring participants to come to their residents or other place where they create their art and watch them at work. You get a glimpse inside their world and what happens to create the beautiful art that they create. The group began first with three artists, then ten and now they are up to 35. For more information about this unique art tour event be sure to check out the post we did on our Benjamin.com blog that covers more details.

In this difficult, tough economy there are more people in need of assistance at their local food banks. If there are those of us who have what we need and can spare some food for food banks in our local communities, without a doubt they will appreciate the help. This week we went by our local Gold Canyon food bank to make a donation and there was a sign that said they did not have enough supplies to help people until closer to the end of the month. This is the first of the month -- the end is a whole month away! If you are in the Gold Canyon Arizona area, click to read our Gold Canyon Arizona Blog and learn where the local food bank is located for your donations to be made. If you are in other cities, look for a food bank in your local community, as they are all likely in need at this t...

The "snow-birds" are beginning to return to Gold Canyon Arizona. (Snow-birds = residents who leave for the hottest summer months to go to a cooler climate.) The weather is becoming more mild. And Gold Canyon is introducing an outdoor marketplace for small businesses, political candidates and individuals called Marketplace at Gold Canyon. The plan is for the event to take place every other Saturday until late spring. For more information about this fun, community outdoor marketplace check out the GoldCanyon.net blog.

Gold Canyon Arizona is on the forefront of a citizens program called Citizens on Patrol, otherwise known as C.O.P.. About two years ago Pinal County decided to use Gold Canyon for a pilot program. Basically citizens pass a series of tests and then donate time to patrol the community in a fully functioning sheriff's car. The mere presence of this car patrolling helps to deter crime. On Sept 2008 there was a dinner to celebrate the two year anniversary. For more information about this event check out this post. If you are a resident of Gold Canyon and interested in  learning more about participating contact  local Gold Canyon Arizona resident, Janice Cunningham at 480-507-6696.

Okay, I've been meaning to share this video attempt at viewing another one of my listings in Gold Canyon, Arizona. This is - yes - another sister. I have/had seven of them. This video is too long, and I've recently listed another property and took a shorter video - less than two minutes - to be shared soon. Meanwhile, sit back, enjoy the show, and let me know? What do you think? ;-) I've hopefully turned down the sound 'cause it's too loud for even me, but I think this was one of my first experiments....as you can see with the wavy flip video routine. ;-) I've got lots more to share, but I've been so busy now that I'm back in the valley. I'll try to be a bit more prolific like some of the rest of you! ;-)           Mesa, Arizona Real Estate. Call me at: 480.216-3334 for information on p...

If you live in or around Gold Canyon Arizona, there have always been very limited options that are logistically close with opportunities to buy organic produce. The local Gold Canyon grocery store, Bashas, always has a limited selection of organic foods, but these are usually just the "basics" and for people who eat organic they are left wanting more -- more varieties. Rising to the need, Sadies Organic Market "happens" on most Saturdays and some Sunday's across the street from the Sheriff's office in the parking lot of Adeana's Antique Store. (5727 S Kings Ranch Road in Gold Canyon, 85218). Usually the market is open Saturday's 8am-7pm and Sunday's 8am-6:30pm. You can usually buy full boxes (22-30 kinds of fruits and veggies), half boxes (12-18 kinds of fruits and veggies), mini boxes ...
