Read this article highlighting coffee companies’ greenwashing and the ‘War on Waste’ that is happening across the pond, too. Thanks for sharing, Marisa!! #stickthatinyourcupandgrowit
Garden-in-a-Cup is back after a very long hiatus (a long winter and desk job is to blame). Looking forward to kicking this off again this summer, collecting your cups, and repurposing more would-be waste! While we wait for cups to grow and be distributed, feast your eyes on this article in the Vineyard Gazette on “closing the loop on the food cycle.”

I’d like to thank everyone who came out and supported Garden-in-a-Cup this past Saturday. I cannot thank you enough for the smiles, extra hands, and recycled cups. Keep your eyes peeled for cup gardens being distributed across the city this week! We’d love your help distributing so please contact me if you are interested in this part of the process.
This sounds like such a fun event: http://arboretum.harvard.edu/news-events/lilac-sunday?wpmp_switcher=mobile. A “Boston tradition,” Lilac Sunday encourages visitors to explore the Arboretum’s extensive lilac collection — and it’s free!

I love this kind of thinking! Check out this article from THE DIRT:
After yesterday’s tragedy, I have been searching for more meaning to our Garden-in-a-Cup project. I uncovered this quote from my book collection:
“Gardens promise beauty where there is none, hope over despair, optimism over pessimism, and finally life in the face of death.”
— from Kenneth Helphand’s Defiant Gardens
According to Britannica Encyclopedia, germination “is the sprouting of a seed, spore, or other reproductive body, usually after a period of dormancy (see afterripening). The absorption of water, the passage of time, chilling, warming, oxygen availability, and light exposure may all operate in initiating the process.”
So for those of you who ask why I am so excited about germination, it is because my Garden-in-a-Cup event is a little over a week away. Cup gardens are growing, tags are being made, and swag is being ordered (every good party needs to have a little swag!). Hope to see y’all there.
