Participants and organizers gather Saturday, Oct. 26, at a plant collection effort at the future Arroyo Crossing affordable housing development in the 2000 block of Spanish Valley Drive.

Organizer Audrey Graham on behalf of the property owner, the Moab Area Community Land Trust, and event sponsor Synergy, encouraged residents to “make use of desert plants and microbiotic soil crusts before work begins on the site in January.”

Graham said the event also served to educate locals about the future neighborhood, which will eventually include 300 units of workforce housing that is not taxpayer funded, and will be available only to local workers and retirees. For more information, visit moabclt.org.
