Now you see it, now you don’t. Mount Rainer, true to its name, disappears behind cloud banks, stays hidden for days and weeks at a time, and reappears in most dramatic fashion. Sometimes, it floats above the clouds, visible only to mountaineers on its glacier-decked slopes and to thrilled passengers of flights climbing the south from Seattle. When weather permits, 14,410-foot-high Rainier is visible from most of western Washington and far out to sea. It looms above the skyline of downtown Seattle as if its glaciers were invading suburban neighborhoods. Of course the best encounters are from park road and trails, notably on the south side in the area call Paradise, known for its wildflower meadows, views of the mountain, prodigious snowfall, and the occasional rainstorm.
If your looking for a book to move and stimulate you I recommend “Silent Spring” by Rachel Carson. Tackling to massive use of pesticides at the turn of life after WWII, Silent Spring was the book that truly changed our view on pesticides and created immense change that still lives on today.
Do What You Love; and the world will fall into place.
As a Johnson & Wales student, a culinary graduate, food lover, and nutritionist I believe overall progress for a sustainable future. Today to help explore the future and feast for knowledge I attended a The Large Scale Collection and Composting of Food Scrap seminar. Before I know now of the little knowledge I actually knew about the movement turn our 34 billion tons of food and yard waste into usable Methane gas and compost. The men and women at the seminar all share the same vision; whether they are chefs, government officials, business owners, or just the home naturalist. All want to find a sustainable solution to one of our nation’s biggest problem; our trash.
Most of the speakers and advocates are looking far beyond the means of our society today; especially with our government in deficit spending these days, as one politician pointed out “We need to do some heavy number crunching to make sure It is I am our states best interest economically and ecologically”. Although there were many ideas mostly focused on the mass removal and composting methods to solve our waste needs, I was more interested in learning the basics.
For the first hour I was almost lost; most of the terminology and ideas they talked about was jargon and facts I scribbled on a paper to look up later. It was very difficult for me to venture from the moderate world of household throw your scraps in the compost and after a while you will get dirt to the scientific mystery of how to economically transport compost, sustainably and cleanly to a massive facility where it is perfectly composted under heat and pressure using precise amounts of moisture and solids with least amount of non-compostable containment possible. But it is a necessary jump; for the rest of my life our world is going to be affected and it is going to be a major concern of where to put our trash not to mention of to do it sustainably with as little environmental impact as possible. It’s kind of a big issue whether you know it or not or even care or not you will.
In my field of work it is most important; seeing how the food waste amounts to most of the compostable waste that is now just throw in with the rest of the land fill to rot and produce methane gas that will most likely be thrown into the ozone. Restaurants have to change, we as households have to change. Just by going to this one seminar I learn a massive amount that is invaluable. We need to change as a society and start taking care of our trash. It is not even difficult as people think; change is as simple as taking food waste and throwing it in a pile in your back yard( for those in rural America), and for those in a city get involved in a community garden and compost there. Simple things that cuts down on waste; I know in my house 90 percent of my waste is food product, all of which is compostable. Hopefully Rhode Island will be able to implement a system soon to remove food waste using a professional service but till then easy enough to use the back yard.
An awesome start to learning about sustainability and interesting program for colleges. Give a look.
Also there is a Johnson & Wales NUtrition Society Meeting tonight at 8PM on Harbor Side, we will discuss upcoming events and projects. We are going to meet outside the Ampitheatre. All are welcom to coming and join.
