KEEPING UP WITH THE COMMUNITY GARDEN
In moving along our path of sustainability we will be focusing on saving seeds this week. We are having success with our cucumbers and tomatoes. This week we will identify specific plants we want to save from as well as focusing on how to save tomato and cucumber seeds.
During harvest comes thoughts of what to do with our produce. We have been bringing most of the produce into Rainbow and have had good results with it getting into our customers bellies. We have also given produce to volunteers as they come and help with the garden.
In realizing our options for our produce, Dr. Moore has been in contact with Elizabeth B. Myles, a Marketing Specialist at Alcorn State . Mrs. Myles will be at the garden July 25th from 10 AM-12 PM presenting information focusing on marketing for small scale food production. Mrs. Myles will be focusing on Developing a Marketing Plan and Direct Marketing Tips for Value Added Products. This workshop is open to all and not specific to those producing food for sale.
I believe that food production on a small scale can not only help to supplement your own food supply but also can be a source of supplemental income.
If you have any inclination of producing or helping someone produce food for sale come out and join us.
See y'all in the garden

THIS WEEK IN PEACE HISTORY
July 23, 1846
Author Henry David Thoreau was jailed for refusing to pay the poll tax as a protest against the Mexican war, which in turn led to his writing "Civil Disobedience." This essay became a source of inspiration for Leo Tolstoy, Mahatma Gandhi, and Martin Luther King, Jr.
From Thoreau’s essay:
“Unjust laws exist: shall we be content to obey them, or shall we endeavor to amend them, and obey them until we have succeeded, or shall we transgress them at once?”

Out of Thoreau's jailing grew a legend: The great Ameriacan philosopher Ralph Waldo Emerson visited Thoreau in jail. Emerson asked, "Henry, why are you here?" Thoreau replied, "Why are you not here? Under a government which imprisons unjustly, the true place for a just man is also a prison."
Thoreau was not alone in his opposition: Thomas Corwin of Ohio denounced the war as merely the latest example of American injustice to Mexico: “If I were a Mexican I would tell you, ‘Have you not room enough in your own country to bury your dead.’ ” Henry Clay [former speaker of the House and presidential candidate] declared, "This is no war of defense, but one of unnecessary and offensive aggression."
Abraham Lincoln also opposed the war, and lost his seat in Congress as a result.
