Community Garden Volunteers: 1000 Gardens Project

Community Garden Volunteers: 1000 Gardens Project

A message from Aubree Taylor to all members (or potential members) of 1000 Gardens Project on Well Fed Neighbor!

Hi everyone, hope the winter offered much needed renewal and that you are ready for Spring. I know I am! We have a greenhouse full of starts and are preparing our garden beds at the Community garden and home. I know you will be busy with your own gardens this Spring, but if you have a few hours a week or a month please consider volunteering at The Kitchen Community Garden. This garden helps feed many people in the surrounding community and our garden volunteers. The Greenhouse grows over 3000 seedlings for the garden and the community.

If you would like to be a part of the Community Garden this year please email Aubree Taylor at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

Animal Diversity Web is an online database of animal natural history

Science Stuff shared this link and note: Wow!! I wish I had discovered this sooner!
 
Animal Diversity Web (ADW) is an online database of animal natural history, distribution, classification, and conservation biology at the University of Michigan.
 
According to their web site, ADW is a large searchable online encyclopedia of the natural history of animals. Every day, thousands of classroom students and informal visitors use it to answer animal questions. Other sites specialize in local, endangered, or particular kinds of animals. We aim to be as comprehensive as possible.
 
Animal Diversity Web has thousands of species accounts about individual animal species. These may include text, pictures of living animals, photographs and movies of specimens, and/or recordings of sounds. Including descriptions of levels of organization, and resources for teachers.
 
Spend some quality time and explore this informative web site:
