Southwest Gardener Now Open at The Newton in Phoenix

Southwest Gardener 300 W. Camelback Road Suite 3

The wait is over. Southwest Gardener is now open at The Newton at Third Avenue and Camelback Road.

The gardening store had outgrown its original location of 15 years at 2809 North 15th Avenue and moved a few miles down the road to a more spacious spot at The Newton. Owned by Amy Carlisle and Lynn Town, the store continues to serve as a go-to space where folks can meet, plant, and learn about how to create their own Southwest oasis.

"You can live outside nine months out of the year; why not have it be beautiful?" Carlisle asks, while she and Town cheerfully discuss inventory. The new space radiates sunshine and feels more like a greenhouse than a store. And it is so much more than a store.

Tempe's Treehouse Collective to Open in September

Treehouse Collective founder Moonbeam Le May opens her new shop Saturday, September 6.

Moonbeam Le May is a maker. Like many makers, she sells on Etsy, and has a community of people around her who share and support that passion to create.

A few months ago, Le May began utilizing those community connections to host a monthly second Saturday market at a University Drive warehouse in Tempe. But rather than content herself with this sort of sporadic gathering, Le May thought bigger. Thus, the idea for The Treehouse Collective was born.

On Saturday, September 6, The Treehouse Collective will open its tiny, nondescript doors to the public, presenting an overflow of local artisans offering everything from metaphysical herbs and stones to cleaning products, jewelry, and vintage clothing. Open daily to the public, Le May hopes to offer something local and purposeful to the diverse denizens of Tempe.
