RECENTLY ON TOL:
- A tumblr site dedicated to the people and places that make up Oregon and Southwest Washington.
Show suggestions: For an economically challenging time: Perhaps heading for another Depression, I suggest 'before the event' occurs Community Brainstorming for ways to reduce the (potentially profound) impact to Oregon.
I suggest two topics and advocate to you to enjoin both local and National experts to discuss:
1. The benefits of expanding Community growing gardens in Urban areas. I recommend more land availability, free tools, seeds and plots as well as "gleaned produce availability" during harvesting seasons for anyone-- growers or non-growers.
2. I believe the burdens of the parents ripple down through their children and avenues for release must be provided to these areas: I recommend the advertizing of Community Center hours, local school basketball gymnasium hours for public availability and perhaps most important (because more children participate in this last sport than any other combined) I strongly advocate for major expansion of efforts to build more skateparks in all of our urban communities. Experts here may range from safety concerns to sources of funding.
Thank You! Sincerely,
