Urban Garden Addresses Food Insecurity

Urban Garden Addresses Food Insecurity.
The corner of Harrison and Halsted streets doesn’t feel very rural, with traffic buzzing by the busy intersection and the Willis Tower looming in the background.
But that will soon change.
Students Dorrian Neeley and Lashawn Evans, both in the undergraduate Human Development and Learning program in the College of Education, have developed UIC’s first urban garden at the intersection, aiming to address issues of sustainability and food security in low-income Chicago communities.
“Growing up in Chicago, we both know what living off the corner store can do for you,” Neeley said.
“We think we can influence the community starting with this garden and hopefully expanding, so people can have the ability to feed themselves.” Their idea blossomed in the Child and Youth Policies in Urban America course (ED 135), taught by Chris Miller, assistant clinical professor of educational policy studies.
Neeley and Evans sought to study sustainable food systems as an independent project, a plan embraced by Miller and Alfred Tatum, dean of the College of Education.

The European Union is considering an electric car mandate.

The European Union is considering an electric car mandate.. Will they or won’t they?
After the United Kingdom and France joined the Netherlands and Norway in putting an end date on the sales of fossil fuel–powered cars, the E.U.
may set wide-reaching requirements for electric vehicles.
Per reports from Climate Home, the E.U.
governing body is mulling an electric and hybrid car quota for automakers by 2030.
The most recent report suggests a proposal is likely.
“They have made it very clear that it is their intention to go to a zero-emissions mandate,” an unnamed source with knowledge of internal E.U.
talks told Climate Home.
“The car industry has been told to stop complaining about it and start being constructive.” Policy aside, recent economic forecasts suggest that electric vehicles may account for more than half of global car sales by 2040.
Several European companies, including Volvo, are taking the hint.

University Recycling 101: How College Students Go Green

Universities are buzzing with young adults passionate about protecting the planet, and student environmental organizations direct all that energy into action.
Student projects promoting sustainability are usually quite effective because they’re fueled by young adults who are enthusiastic, persistent and innovative, according to Talia Haller, director and founder the Green Greek Representative Program at the University of Washington in Seattle.
It poises us for success in a lot of ways.” Green Greeks The Green Greek Program is a network of representatives from sororities and fraternities at UW who devise and implement planet-friendly practices in their houses.
A Green Greek project at a UW fraternity, for example, involved equipping the house with several strategically placed recycling and composting bins, and switching to products that support the effort, such as disposable utensils that are composted instead of tossed into the trash.
Sustainable Farming Students at various universities, including Washington University in St. Louis, run their own farms, often with an emphasis on organic fruits and vegetables.
In addition to offering tours of the garden, students from Burning Kumquat set up a folding table on campus and sell lettuce and other freshly picked fruits and vegetables.
“I think it’s good for people to understand what they eat and what’s needed to produce the food,” Pomerantz says.
Burning Kumquat’s environmental focus also includes such activities as screening films and leading a bike tour of local urban farms.
Arendt is an informal advisor to the recycling effort, which his institute launched as part of a student internship program.
The students package the plastic into bales, which are sold to a firm that incorporates recycled wood and recycled plastic film into decking material.
