Urgent Evoke

A crash course in changing the world.

Recently in English we've been studying gardening and the Kissena
Corridor Park Garden. At first,I thought how did this have anything to
do with English and writing. When I saw the gardens and how beautiful
they were I started to think maybe I could write about a specific plot
and maybe show how beautiful the gardens where through words. I know
that many people feel that this assignment is boring or pointless but in
a way I find it relevant and meaningful. After doing this study I feel
more knowledgeable about gardening and plants. For example I learned how
to plant certain types of flowers. So this did prove to be a
interesting and beneficial experience.

One thing I know for sure about gardening is that it takes a great deal of dedication and hard
work. Now I've studied my fare of gardening and realize you can't just
put a plant in the ground and expect it to grow on its own. Personally
it's funny to me how I never realized how much work and attention plants
to need to stay alive.

I also did some research on how gardening can be helpful and used in ways to better our lives. I
recently listened to a TED talk about school lunches and how they can
become more nutritious.
LINK--->http://www.ted.com/talks/ann_cooper_talks_school_lunches.html
Ann Cooper speaks about how many school throughout the U.S serve fatty and
non-nutritious meals. She is working on a program to teach children to
eat properly and introduce healthy foods in school lunches. She also
includes gardening programs such as the one we are doing in my school. I
agree with her about how we are what we eat since it has been proven
that people who eat fatty foods and processed foods don't live as long. A
healthy diet is incredibly important and can start by just learning
about what you are eating. Gardening can be a good way to learn about
healthy foods and it can be fun.

While we were outside we took some pictures of the amazing gardens people have put together.
From these pictures you can see how much work people put into these gardens keeping them looking as
nice as they do. They wake up early in the morning and start tending to
the gardens. I know it really does take a lot of dedication to work so
early in the morning. I feel more people should try gardening and
growing some of there own vegetables. Maybe by doing so they can learn
to eat healthier as well.

Fourth of July on the Lake

This past weekend was the annual celebration at the lake house in Connecticut. It is amazing that the lake is still so clear and beautiful after all these years. The watershed association has done a wonderful job protecting these waters from the damaging effects of development.The wood grill was finally ready to cook on, so we didn't miss the propane tank fueled grill anymore. The food actually tasted fresher than in the past and was easy to keep fueled.Dad was very proud of the solar hybrid…See More

Stinging Nettle

In this blog post I will focus on a plant that is abundant in our nature, and which is immensely nutritious. It's of course the Stinging Nettle.

In addition the Stinging Nettle consists…See More

Future

FutureToday is 2020/1/1. It is just like yesterday. The war is still continuing. It has started since 2010. In 2010, that year was a horrible year. Almost every energy ran out. Every country’s governments were crushed down at the same time. There were riots everywhere. All of the big company’s bosses were killed xdeadx in the riots. Troops fought each other everywhere. Food was bought up xawayx at once. There were no more food supplies in any shops. The economy was all crushed down. All the…See More

public servants

The exchange works directly for state and public workers and servants. It gives them credit in exchange for the amount of public work they contribute to the community. The more constructive they are based off a base rate the more credit they recieve.
