Future Pioneers, Who are they?

Next Saturday will be a super-special day!

25 “Future Pioneer” candidates will be put to the test. Do they have what it takes to be a co-author and collaborator for the book “Sustainable Food for the Globe; Future Pioneers, The Children”?

Can they tell tell us where potatoes come from? True or False: A bag of potato chips?   What are good bugs? True of False: Lady bugs are good for the flowers and plants? Bonus question: Where do butterflies come from?

Well, next Saturday, our Future Pioneers will go through a test of stregth, courage and stamina! Are they strong enough to lift 3 gallons of mulch? Do they have the courage to find grubs in the lawn? Do they have the stamina to push a wheel barrel?

Those are just a few of the challenges they will face! I have so many questions to ask them about Mother Earth, Water, Trees and more.

Do you have you have any challenging questions about sustainability that you want me to ask these young brave future pioneers? If yes, please post your questions in the comment section below. 

I wonder? How many pizzas pieces will each pioneer eat? Hum… I better prepare well for this pizza piece challenge.

Wish me luck!

Grappling with Sustainability

Hello readers!

My name is Regina Whitfield, one of the Sustainability House members for the 2016-2017 academic year; majoring in Environmental Science.

My experience so far? Living in a sustainable fashion isn’t strange or impossible, it’s smart and mindful of our future generations. The one aspect I had feared before living here happened to be water limitations (ie 5 minute showers!). Now that I’ve adjusted to the time limit, I’ve found that a lot can be accomplished in 5 minutes!

Another task involving water in every day life is laundry. A decent amount of water can be wasted if you don’t set the machine to the suit the load. Remember to wash your dirty laundry to the appropriate…

First Month Developments

A Future Pioneer in the making!

Grappling with Sustainability

This month the sustainability house is getting into the swing of things. As we come back to college it has been hard to develop sustainable living practices, which has shown us our base line from where we can improve. These past few weeks we have put into place systems for measuring waste. We brought scales into the kitchen to weigh the amount of groceries we bring into the house, and then to calculate the amount of normal waste we throw out and the amount of recyclables. With this we are hoping to be able to show that many of the materials we take into our homes or dorms can be recycled or reused. Plastic and paper wastes are the most common from a college campus. All of the water we drink from plastic bottles and the papers we write just pile up and we throw them carelessly into the trash…
