“I am necessary”

4 Aug

Congratulations to my friend Nick (whom i especially celebrate) for making to the front page of the Cherry Hill Courier -Post.  The article covers how important it is for children to master the psychology of self-esteem as a way to promote better healthier athleticism.

A big congrats to Jacob Stewart and and Krista Miller on their engagement.  Its been a long time and they hiked the A.T. together…it was meant to be.

Last but not least a big thank you and congratulations to the ladies from Cloud 9 Philly Rooftop farm.  They met the funding goal and then some.  Plus I’m psyched about a new t-shirt hand printed by Clare herself!

Farm Frenzy, Raise the Roof!

23 Jun

West Philly has gardens, garden communities, and mini-farms popping up all over!  Farm 51, the guerilla space “Plotland” and cute little lot garden on Kingessing behind the recreation center.  What you don’t know, is that the West Side is about to RAISE THE ROOF!  (And I mean literally plant and raise a farm on the roof!)

Rania Campbell-Cobb, landscaper and farm coordinator for Guild House West Community Garden, and Clare Hyre, education coordinator for Saul W.B. Agricultural School, teamed up to bring you Cloud 9.  (You can read more details on their website)  Whats really cool is the idea of building your own farm on top of your apartment complex, or what local corner markets could provide in their own store… “top-o-the-market tomatoes!”
