CELEBRATION OF NATURE SERIES:
NATIVE PLANTS & A HEALTHY ECOSYSTEM
We have a wonderful show in our Celebration of Nature series for you with someone dedicated to teaching about native plants. Eman Rashid, runs a series of children's programs through Brooklyn Seeds which teaches children gardening and composting as a way to educate them about nature and the environment. We will talk about why garden stores are oriented around non-native plants, why native plants are better for your garden and better for birds, bees and butterflies, why oak trees are so important, about the importance of delaying spring cleanup til later in the season, and how Eman Rashid interacts with kids.
The news and announcements section of our show begins with good news about
White Rhinos recovery plans,
The bill passed in the NYS legislature to ban dumping radioactive wastewater into the Hudson River,
and updates on
The attempt to divide and conquer opposition to Cop City,
An analysis of the poor security of nuclear power plants and nuclear waste storage and transportation, and
