Did You Know?

smiling snowman with blue scarfJackson Hole, WY has taken a small, unused plot of ground and turned it into something special—a 30’ vertical greenhouse.   Verticalharvest.org tells you about the multifaceted plans. It has the potential to: Provide year-round crop production of fresh, vitamin nutrient food locally, increase yield when compared to traditional farming, avoid weather-related crop failures due to droughts, floods, and pests,  add energy back to the grid via renewable energy sources, decrease the amount of water used for crop production and convert underutilized properties into food production centers. The employees will be mostly adults with developmental disabilities and will be partnered with mentors.

While visiting your post office this season, you may want to ask if they are offering a special premium-priced stamp which will contribute to funding projects supported by the Multinational Species  Fund. The stamps will be available for a minimum of 5 years and the premium you pay will go directly to this fund. Many species are threatened or near extinction and this particular effort is directed specifically to generate funds for rhinos, tigers, elephants, great apes and marine turtles. At this time the bill has passed the House and is going before the Senate. The premium Breast Cancer stamp, issued in 1998, has raised more than 70 million dollars for research. Let’s hope this one is equally successful in helping to keep the delicate balance of nature.
