We must halt environmental destruction while providing a better quality of life for everyone on Earth.

Since our hope has been that alternative energy can replace fossil fuels, it can be overwhelming to learn of its limitations.

How real are concerns with nuclear, solar, wind, and hydro-power? How can overcoming capitalism help attain the social justice and shorter work week that humanity needs?

Come and hear from:

– Joan McKiernan from the Broome Tioga Green Party

– Katie Singer with Reports on Our Digital Footprint

– Stan Cox from The Land Institute

– Omali Yeshitela, Chairman, African People’s Socialist Party

– Don Fitz from the Green Party of St. Louis.

Moderator: Delilah Barrios from the Green Party Latinx Caucus.

This webinar will explore core issues involved in creating a better world while using vastly less energy and producing what we need for a brighter future.

The webinar is NO COST, but you need to REGISTER to attend. Register here: https://zoom.us/meeting/register/tJMkduyrrD0sH9zpNMVQ6GraMf-j7jxSA2eW

Our biggest fundraiser of the year is going virtual AND statewide! This new auction format, taking the place of our usual plant sale in Indianapolis, will have the advantage of reaching members and non-members throughout Indiana. The weeklong event will be held Saturday, May 15, through Saturday, May 22.

Event Recap:

Saturday, May 15
10:00 a.m. Silent auction opens

Saturday, May 22
11:00 a.m. Emily Wood speaks on “Top 5 Reasons to Grow Native”
11:30 a.m. Sue Nord Peiffer offers tips and a live auction preview
12:00 p.m. Live auction begins
2:00 p.m. Silent auction bidding closes

Registration:
To participate in all that’s planned, you will need to register on two sites:

Givergy at https://givergy.us/indiananativeplants/ Register here to view and bid on auction items. New items are being added weekly! When you place your first bid, you will be asked to enter credit card information.

Zoom at https://us02web.zoom.us/meeting/register/tZMtfuCprzotGtU9iwbT1S-CcNBxEeIZRvH2 This will get you a link to the live event on Saturday, May 22, that includes speakers and the live auction.

If you have questions about the auction, address them to (see https://www.facebook.com/events/2794174510848262/ for email address).

Auction Bidding:
Bidding competition begins with an online silent auction opening at 10:00 a.m. on Saturday, May 15, and continues through the week. The bidding fun will be capped by a virtual live auction at noon the following Saturday, May 22, followed by the close of silent auction bidding at 2:00 p.m.

Up for bid will be premium native plant specimens from from nurseries and garden centers in the Grow Indiana Natives program, along with select curated items and services specially chosen to entice bidders. A professional auctioneer will encourage bidding on six to ten choice or rare items that will be available only during the live auction.

All auction bidding will be conducted by means of your smartphone or laptop. We are using Givergy as our app to display auction items and track bids.

The pick-up location of each plant or plant package will be clearly designated in item descriptions, and bidders will retrieve their winnings at the donor nurseries.

Speakers:
Leading up to the live auction on May 22 will be virtual talks by two excellent speakers, live on Zoom.

She loves hiking, birdwatching, photography, and gardening and is working on restoring a 1986 Chevy Truck.

11:30 a.m. Plant Tips and Live Auction Preview Sue Nord Peiffer, a veteran of INPS auctions, knows just about everything there is to know about native plants and will clue us in to the fine points of plants offered in the live auction. She oversees the Madeline Elder Greenhouse at Newfields.

Audiodacity with The Labra Brothers

Saturday, May 15th

Anything is possible! This is the mission statement of the multi-genre sextet, and it is embedded in the heart of every song they write. From their humble beginnings as an open mic house cover band, Audiodacity has grown into a dynamic and musically-diverse ensemble with dozens of original songs, each imbued with the spirit of their camaraderie. Every member has varying levels of musical backgrounds, preferences, and influences; but these differences seamlessly combine into a sound that is truly original. Funk, rock, hip-hop, latin, jazz, reggae, R&B, blues and even dubstep – no genre is left unexplored.
Audiodacity’s unique style and their reputation for delivering unforgettable live performances have earned them a spot among Indiana’s top bands. They have won several city-wide and state-wide battle of the bands competitions, performed all throughout the Midwest, and have even shared the stage with nationally touring acts such as Ludacris, GROUPLOVE, and Here Come The Mummies.

Across America, in major cities you’ve heard of and in countless places you most likely have never considered, public librarians are working with local, state, and national partners to bring food to those who need it.

Wait — librarians?

Yes indeed. And, when librarians distribute food, they do more than merely give it away.

They also use the library’s myriad educational and lifelong learning resources to integrate culinary literacy into library programming, so families and individuals don’t just leave with food, they leave with the knowledge needed to know what to do with it.

As trusted members of nearly every community in the United States (and in much of the rest of the world), public librarians are uniquely positioned to support food access and food literacy.

This interactive dialogue with librarians who manage farmers’ markets, summer feeding programs, community fridges, and culinary literacy centers will focus on building understanding of the unique roles of local librarians in community food systems.

If you care about food, health, or community development, this event is for you.

Featuring:

  • Patrice Chamberlain, MPH (Master’s of Public Health), former Director of California Summer Meals Coalition and current Lead of “Lunch at the Library,” California Library Association
  • Leighan Cazier, Experience Support Specialist, Richland Library in Columbia, South Carolina
  • Erica Freudenberger, Outreach & Engagement Consultant at the Southern Adirondack Library System and co-founder of “Fresh Food Collective Farm-2-Library initiative”
  • Caity Rietzen, Acting Director of the Free Library of Philadelphia’s Culinary Literacy Center
  • Curated by Noah Lenstra, Assistant Professor of Library and Information Science, University of North Carolina Greensboro, Director of Let’s Move in Libraries
  • Moderated by Tom Llewellyn, Strategic Partnerships Director, Shareable.net, and co-founder of the Asheville Tool Library

Would you like to help shape the discussion? Please send your questions for the panelists to [email protected]

This is event is co-presented by UNC Greensboro School of Education, Let’s Move in Libraries, and Shareable.net
