Winter 2012 PDC follow up

Our Winter 2012 PDC was our 5th annual Winter PDC. It was one of our smaller classes, which made for a very personalized learning environment. The students, as always, vary across demographics, culture and age, yet, as always, make for a wonderful class. This class was headed up by Braden Trauth with the support of our large pool of well trained teachers who head up the ecological living scene in this bio-region. Teachers like Mary Lu Lagemen of Grailville, Suellyn Schupe of Enright Urban Eco-Village, Ande Schewe of Wind Dance Farm, Gretchen Vaughn of Greensleeves Farm, Sam Dunlap of the Civic Garden Center and much more.

We hosted the class at a slew of places that demonstrate ecological living around Cincinnati ranging from OM Valley Permaculture’s home site, Enright Urban Ecovillage or Green Sleeves Farm. The students all brought to the table a strong desire to understand how to live more ecologically. Their interests ranged from wanting to be able to share with others what this looks like and encourage projects that will help bring about this

change to living the lifestyle and sharing with others. The final projects were all great and continue to raise the bar of design skills, integration and creativity. Below is a Photo Journal of our 6th PDC that we have taught in this region and exemplifies the leaps and bounds we are making to change the region person by person as we learn to get back in alignment with the Earth for our future and that of future generations.

Textiles And Fibers Lecture Update

We are glad to announce that last night’s Textiles And Fibers Lecture lead by fashion designer Margaret Mussman was a success, riveting a table full of community members for more than an hour!

Margarets lecture started with

a conversational tone. A brief explanation of the historical significance of fiber dying was followed by her personal insights into the current fashion industry, having studied and worked in the fashion industry. Attendees were surprised by much of the information and often contributed to the conversation.

We then discussed basic home fiber dying methodes using salt and vinegar as a mordent (the substance that opens and fixes color in the fibers) , with household natural dyes (like cumin or onion skins

for example). Many of us were pleasantly surprised that so much of what we find in the kitchen can be repurposed for dying well!

The lecture concluded with a small conversation regarding the future and direction of This-Land. Many at the table had great ideas to contribute. (Thanks y’all!)

This-Land Community Lectures are held ever Wednesday, 7:30 at Take The Cake in Northside, after the Northside Farmers Market, and are free to the public. Coming up next week, Seeding And Soil 101 with urban farmer and industrial design student, Kristen Gustafaro.

This lecture will be covering the super exciting and nearly invisible world of soil animals. There is a lot going on in terms of life and activity in dirt and we’ll explore the basics of what living and non living components are there, how they interact, and why they are so cool and important to farmer/gardeners. After a brief break we’ll talk about how to mix a five star potting soil, where to order seeds from, how to decide what seeds to buy, and finally how to start growing them.

It’s gonna be a blast!

WE HAVE A LOGO!

So we finally decided after many ideations, that the header up there is our logo… Its here to stay and we love it…. Now, you might be thinking that a logo is not that crucial in the development of a non-profit whose mission it is to provide education in sustainability, but like any group that wants to be easily identified, a strong logo is very important. Plus

we are going to have to look at this logo everyday for, well I guess forever. So This-Land.Org has a logo and you’ll be seeing it!
