Getting to Know Garden Herbs
Bob Madden, Garden Dreams Urban Farm & Nursery
Carnegie Library of Homewood

Add some excitement to your gardening—and cooking—repertoire this season with fresh herbs! Join Bob Madden of Garden Dreams Urban Farm & Nursery for the second installment of his three-part springtime gardening workshop and get to know garden herbs. We will learn how to plant, maintain, and harvest several popular herb varieties and will discuss some basic troubleshooting techniques. Most herbs grow happily in pots and window boxes, so don’t let the lack of a garden bed keep you from joining in the fun!

Hunger & Poverty Simulation
Katy Millins and Julie Rusin, Pitt FeelGood
Carnegie Library of Homewood

What does hunger look like? How do global poverty and food insecurity perpetuate one another? What can we do to end hunger and poverty in our lifetime? The University of Pittsburgh’s chapter of the national FeelGood organization is committed to finding answers to these questions and wants you to join in the conversation. Julie Rusin and Katy Millins will facilitate an interactive simulation to help illuminate the systemic causes of global hunger and poverty and start a dialogue about the need for sustainable development.

Illegal Dumping: Pittsburgh’s Dirty Little Secret
Myrna Newman, Allegheny CleanWays
Carnegie Library of Homewood

Pittsburgh has been named the Most Livable City six times since 2000. We also pride ourselves on being one of the greenest cities. There is another side of Pittsburgh that we don’t talk much about—the pockets of blight scattered throughout the hillsides and along our lovely rivers. Myrna Newman will discuss a particular type of blight: illegal dumping. Join us to learn about the environmental, social, economic, and health costs associated with illegal dumping and how you can help Allegheny CleanWays reverse the damage.
