Winter Gardening

Cool Weather Crops | A Sustainably Flourishing Series presented by Dan Ballard

In late September we were joined by local farmer and landscaper Mr. Dan Ballard for our final Sustainably Flourishing 2017 on winter gardening. Read on to see tips that he shared, and get inspired to get your winter garden going and growing!

Meatless Monday

Meatless Monday is a sustainability movement that helps the environment and the health of it’s participants. Going meatless once a week may reduce your risk of chronic preventable conditions like cancer, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and obesity. It can also help reduce our carbon footprint and save precious resources like fossil fuels and fresh water. I have decided to participate in Meatless Monday for a month and document my experiences.

Meatless Monday #1

Breakfast was easy. A piece of fruit and a toaster waffle and I’m out the door. Lunch was harder. Having class during the day, I typically grab lunch at the student center. I found myself quickly realizing that there are less vegetarian and meatless options than I originally expected. Chic-fil-a basically serves chicken sandwiches only, so that was out. Maybe I could have found a bean only options at Taco Bell but I wasn’t interested. Subway seems healthy, but I always order turkey sandwiches so what could I order there? I remember seeing their veggie patties there and decided against it.
