No more ‘cup to go’ please!

Time to remember to ALWAYS carry your own cup. It's more than just coffee, too, it's all those throw-away drinks, covered food trays. And don't forget the sippers! (Though so far, I've not found one that truly works, so maybe we DON'T need straws?) Here's the story  ...   Is your recycled item TRULY recycled? To sustain a thriving café culture, we must ditch the disposable cup.  Date: March 1, 2021 Source: University of South Australia Summary: Takeaway coffees - they're a convenient start for millions of people each day, but while the caffeine perks us up, the disposable cups drag us down, with nearly 300 billion ending up in landfill each year. While most coffee drinkers are happy to make a switch to sustainable practices, new research shows that an absence of infrastructure and a general 'throwaway' culture is severely delaying sustainable change.

Want to help with a community trash clean up on March 13th?

We received this wonderful email and request from one of our members.  Please let Yvette know if you can help!  What a wonderful way to celebrate a holiday, working together and building community!  Thanks Yvette for reaching out and organizing this! Hi there, I am part of your Moving to Conservers group. I am reaching out to you from my non-profits email today though because we are partnering with Brevard Rotary to do trash pick up on Wilson Rd on March 13th. Would you and some of your members be willing to join my team? I need 5+ people to join. Since it's close to St. Patrick's Day I'm going to have my team dress in garb to have fun and help us stand out more on the road. Thank you for your time. Yvette Brooks yvette@throughthetrees.us

Noel talks about the upcoming seed swap

Hello Gardeners, I am sure you all enjoyed the short string of sunshine we were gifted as of late. I bet you noticed as well the day length was longer, at dawn and dusk.  Time to think gardening!  Since humans have been growing food, the challenges have been numerous. With this endeavor came the saving of seeds from the tastiest and most adaptable plants. People today still are making crosses, trying to achieve variety and hardiness.  There are many facets to gardening and seed saving is one of the many. It is a challenge and every plant has its own protocol for ensuring next year’s seeds will be viable and delicious.  But we have the luxury of thousands of varieties of seeds offered to us through garden centers and seed catalogues. Many of you most likely have packets from last year or even earlier. Check out the seed viability charts and learn what seeds are still useful. It is these you can plant this season AND share! https://www.highmowingseeds.co [...]
