Happy Earth Day!

Happy Earth Day! I plan posts and pics for Astronomy Day, which was yesterday, as well as reprinting the original 49 tips in an encore blog.  I leave it to you, my readers, to come up with Tip # 50!  It can be anything related to the environment, living green, repurposing and recycling, spiritual welfare, gardening, farming, science, cooking, crafts, baking, folk art, housekeeping, folk songs, or Nature Writing.  Just keep it clean and family friendly :)


Below is something my old state of Illinois is attempting to do to sustain water, even if they are pretty much "broke."  Follow also the efforts of Living Lands and Waters:


1 Mississippi
April 21, 2017

Hello,Illinois River Citizens! llinois communities and farmland need your help.  Join Illinois Stewardship Alliance, the Illinois Environmental Council and 1 Mississippi at the state capitol for our first ever Healthy Soils, Healthy Waters Advocacy Day and help educate our legislators on the importance of not only protecting, but strengthening, our natural resources through fair farm and conservation policies.  This event is FREE to attend!
Safe drinking water, fields full of butterflies and bees, crystal clear streams, earth worms, ponds full of fish, thriving wildlife, abundant harvests-- these all depend on healthy waters and healthy soils. If you love these things like we do, help us ask the State of Illinois to put resources towards implementing the Nutrient Loss Reduction Strategy and supporting conservation resources such as county Soil & Water Conservation Service departments.
When: Wednesday, April 26th

Where: Arlington's Restaurant, 210 Broadway, Springfield, IL

10:30-11:00am Registration: 
Sign in and pick up your packets at the upstairs rooms in Arlington's Restaurant.

11:00am - 1:00pm Lunch and Training: 
We'll kick start the day with a locally sourced lunch featuring a burger bar, salad and homemade potato chips. While we chow, our fearless leaders will review our legislative priorities and lead us through advocacy training, including talking points, how to interact with legislators and their assistants, and how to navigate the Capitol complex.

1:00pm- 3:45pm Meetings with Legislators
After lunch we'll descend upon the Capitol to make our voices heard for healthy soils and healthy waters.

4:00pm - 6:00pm Reception and Green Caucus Meeting:
After the Capitol, we'll make our way back to Arlington's restaurant to celebrate our hard work with a reception featuring local food snacks and one free drink. During this time period we'll also hold the Green Caucus Meeting. Stick around to mingle with legislators and learn more about water quality alongside them during our panel discussion with water and environmental experts. 
To make a lasting impact on Illinois food systems, we need to address the system as a whole, from the way farmers view conservation practices, to the way citizens view buying food, to the way policy makers view farming and food production. Each part of the system depends on the other, and we cannot make lasting changes without addressing all of them. We also cannot make lasting changes without YOU. 
Thank you, River Citizens, for all that you do for the Mississippi River. We hope to see you in Springfield!
