Kankakee Wetlands Organic Gardens

It hit her right where she lived, environmentally, financially, socially.  She was sharing a ride to work with her friend, passing vacant lots around her neighborhood:  a 2007 winter of hunger, abandoned homes and vacant lots, and global warming.  “What a waste…” she noted to her friend. Judith Rubleske, of South Bend, Indiana’s west side, characteristically frugal, ecto-vegetarian, civic and environmental activist, nutritionist, gardener, and full-time WIC employee, could not ignore this triple threat right at her front door.   She began discussing, sharing, and exploring possible solutions that morning on the way to work.  So many overwhelming challenges.  How to...

Wind Farms in Indiana

CONGRATULATIONS INDIANA: Renewable energy is alive and well. As of Fall 2013, Indiana ranked as the thirteenth highest state in terms of installed wind power capacity (reported by the US Department of Energy).  In 2007 Indiana had no installed wind energy, ranking it behind 32 other states.  That is great progress is the last six years. As of 1/2/2013, 930 turbines produce 1,543.2 MW. These projects sell wind power to Indiana utilities or to buyers out-of-state. Some of the largest installations are: Fowler Ridge Wind Farm (BP) – Benton County Installed: 355 turbines; 600 MW Meadow Lake Wind Farm (Horizon Wind Energy) –...

When The Wind Stops Blowing

Renewable energy generated from wind and solar sources does not produce CO2, so it does not  contribute to climate change.  But what happens when the wind stops blowing or the Sun is not shining?  Electric generating utilities can manage the predictable ups and downs from renewable energy sources, but rapid and unexpected changes cause major problems. Electricity grids require a continuous balance between energy supply and demand. Renewable generation, such as solar and wind is intermittent, and that is slowing their adoption into the grid systems. Altairnano Technologies, in Anderson, IN produces a battery based system to deal with the...

Peaceful grounds

Some people look at a mass of wriggling earthworms and think ‘yuck’. Linda Profitt looks at these same earthworms and sees something beautiful. Linda is the Executive Director of the Global Peace Initiative. That organization works for peace in a variety of ways. Through numerous “Peace Gardens” throughout the area, they provide produce for neighborhood food pantries.  There are numerous volunteer opportunities where people learn about principles of sustainability. Peace Hikes offer a different approach to experiencing neighborhoods. Over the years, several thousand youth have had their awareness raised about food, farming and the need for sustainable practices. A few...
