Garden, Learn, Give, Enjoy (at the Garden of Eat’in)

Chris Dobbins-Guill, the founder of the Garden of Eat’in says, “My primary purpose was to provide fresh fruits and vegetables for our local Kenneth Butler Memorial Soup Kitchen while improving the quality and nutrition of food prepared at the soup kitchen.”  However, Mrs. Dobbins-Guill will tell you it has been more about growing people than produce. She started with ½ acres of land and her own labor.  Now the Garden covers one acre, and she has the help of many volunteers who share her interest in gardening and her passion for improving the quality of life for individuals in their community.  She has also expanded...

Global swarming — invasive species in our midst

Invasive bugs, bushes, fish and pigs are changing our eco-system here in the Wabash Valley. There are more than 50,000 foreign species in the Unites States, where they have been able to outcompete or simply eat our native flora and fauna. As global trade increases, so do our chances for losing more of our natural habitat. While the problem is overwhelming, the invasive species task force of Indiana has developed a website/app to help us get a grip on the never-ending problem. “I have been working on this issue for 20 years. I have watched one site after another be lost to invasive plants. In places that were...

August 19th: Earth Overshoot Day 2014

Did you know that August 19th was special day – that is, in a negative way.  It was the day in 2014 we Earthlings used up all the resources that nature provides to us during the entire year.  From now until the end of the year we are living off of our “savings account”.  In addition to living off the savings account (mostly fossil fuels and fossil water) we are polluting the environment and thus inhibiting nature from providing as many resources in the future. The Global Footprint Network calculates the deficit or surplus for each country, and combines those...

All sewn up

Hi Renee,

Do you know a place that re-uses fabric from sewing projects?  Some may be several yards, usable for making an outfit, others are scraps from projects.  This would be most helpful for my closet cleaning!

Thanks.

Recycle this!

Dear Renee - 

What is the best way to get involved and have an impact on what the city of Indianapolis decides regarding recycling?

I find it ironic to see all of the new billboards around town noting the problem when the solutions haven’t seemed to follow.

Thanks!

You may [...]
