    Is Your Lawn Care Killing The Bees and Butterflies?

    in Gardening

    In garden centers and nurseries, there are a myriad of products that are being pushed on the consumer that are not necessarily needed in order to keep your lawn healthy all summer long. There are also products that contain harsh chemicals that are dangerous to all beings. Chemicals, such as Imidacloprid, which are part of the neonicotinoid family, will wipe out any chance that a butterfly or bumblebee will visit your home to pollinate the vegetables in your garden much less any flowers. Many of these products, subsequently, are very expensive and completely unnecessary. Thanks to clever marketers, people are buying them without having any idea as to how much damage they are doing to their own lawns. To top it off, there are certain times of the year when specific products should be used but are marketed to be used all year round. When it comes to alternatives to these chemicals, they are never even mentioned because this would prevent the chemical companies from enjoying their healthy profits while your lawn becomes unhealthy. Unfortunately, the public only knows what they learn from clever commercials and ads as they spend dollar after dollar buying products that are a complete waste and are contributing to declining pollinator populations. In this segment of The Organic View Radio Show, host, June Stoyer will speak to Tom Kelly, CEO of Firebelly Organic Lawn Care about what consumers should know in order to have a healthy lawn.

    069: Don't be a Passive Aggressive Activist in a Lawn Chair (Reflections)

    in Health

    There's a picture floating around the Internet of a gentleman sitting in a lawn chair.


    This man, in his lawn chair, is holding up two signs. Each says, "23 American Veterans commit suicide every day. No One Cares. 1 lion gets killed and the country is in an uproar."


    Saying "no one cares" about any veterans issues - or any issues for that matter - is absurd and completely false. People use this erroneous exaggeration to emphasize their point, but it's insulting.


    "No one cares" is a slap in the face to the millions of people putting forth whatever effort they can to provide veterans with the care they need.


    I care. I care a lot about the veterans that are killing themselves each day. I care a lot about the community and how torn down we've been with labels of PTSD and suicide. I care deeply that news covers our issues because the outrage and patriot complex persuades people to share and click. I care so passionately about finding a solution to the problem (much more than our subject in his lawn chair).


    I'm just one person, though. I know there are hundreds of people out there who care simply because they listen to my podcast and these stories. I know there are millions of other veterans that are distraught about their comrades falling to their own hands. I've witnessed crowds of people hanging on my every word as I deliver a TEDx Talk, presentation, or speech on veteran suicide and answer all of their questions. Most of those questions surrounding the big question: how can we help?


    Believe it or not, there are even people at the VA who care.

    Advice for New School Board Members from Almost New Board Members

    in Education

    Every year in New Jersey an estimated five hundred new school board members begin their service on their local boards of education.  They want to be effective, but there is so much to learn, and there are many relationships to build in a very short time.  What can these new board members learn from others who have experienced that same situation recently?   What lessons did board members who have just finished their first term learn, that might help our new board members in 2016?  What can veteran school board members do to make the transition the best for all?  Please join NJSBA’s host Ray Pinney as he discusses these lessons with school board members Kathy Helewa of Warren Township, Tom Maier of Pemberton and Jeffrey Klein of Fair Lawn.
