School Gardens

first_imgPlanting gardens at schools is not a new concept. The school garden movement first took off in 1917 when the U.S. School Garden Army was created with the motto, “A garden for every child, every child in a garden.”As of late, school gardens have experienced resurgence. A growing number of teachers are embracing school gardens to teach students much more than how to put a seed in the ground, care for it, watch it grow and enjoy the harvest provided by the plant.Becky Griffin, community and school garden coordinator for University of Georgia Cooperative Extension, says school gardens are gaining momentum for several reasons, including science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) education requirements.“Schools can get a feather in their cap for using their school garden to meet the STEM certification,” Griffin said. “Teachers use their gardens to teach history by growing beans that (Meriwether) Lewis and (William) Clark brought back from their expedition, and they plant colonial gardens filled with crops from the time of George Washington. They also use school gardens to teach math. You use lots of division and recording to plant a garden. Some teachers have the students grow their crops in geometric shapes.”English teachers use school gardens by reading a book, then planting crops or flowers that were mentioned in the book, Griffin said.School gardens are an excellent educational tool, but they are also hard work. In Coweta County, Georgia, Griffin was called in to consult on a potential school garden before the soil was tilled and the seeds were planted.“First, the school administration needs to be on board, then the teachers, the parents and community leaders,” she said. “If the garden is being planned and planted by just one teacher, it’s going to fail. In the summer and during breaks from school, you need volunteers to help weed and water and care for the garden.”To help Georgia teachers grow gardens and successfully use them as teaching tools, UGA Extension and the UGA Center for Urban Agriculture offer school garden teacher training. In the summer of 2015, 60 teachers from 24 Georgia counties were trained at workshops help in Athens, Atlanta and Griffin, Georgia. They learned about crops that are in season during the school year, how to test garden soil before planting and how to control pests using as little pesticide as possible.For more information on this program, visit ugaurbanag.com/gardens/teacher-training.last_img read more

Governor Wolf Urges MLB to Keep Minor League Teams in Pennsylvania

first_img December 02, 2019 National Issues,  Press Release Governor Tom Wolf sent a letter to Major League Baseball (MLB) Commissioner Robert Manfred and Deputy Commissioner Dan Halem urging them to reconsider a proposal to cut ties with more than 40 Minor League teams throughout the nation.“Pennsylvania is proud of our place in the history of our country and with baseball,” said Gov. Wolf. “Pennsylvania’s professional baseball affiliates help provide affordable, family-friendly entertainment and improve the quality of life in each of their communities. The MLB’s antitrust exemption and exclusive control of local professional baseball operations unfortunately could make this decision life-or-death for these community teams. The MLB needs to do the right thing and recognize the value of these community institutions that have been part of the league’s success. I am hopeful that any decisions made on this proposal will only be made after consulting with local representatives about the effects on the local economies.”According to the proposal, three Pennsylvania teams would be impacted: Erie SeaWolves, State College Spikes, and the Williamsport Crosscutters.The full letter is as follows:Dear Commissioner Manfred and Deputy Commissioner Halem:It has come to my attention that Major League Baseball is proposing to eliminate player development contracts for forty-two Minor League Baseball teams including three teams stationed in Pennsylvania cities. On behalf of all Pennsylvanians, I am writing to express my concern with this proposal.Baseball is one of America’s favorite pastimes and Minor League Baseball teams have brought professional baseball and the joy of the game to many people across the country. The result of your proposal will be detrimental to not only players and employees of teams who will lose their jobs, but to the communities these teams call home. Minor League teams support local businesses and host various forms of charitable work for their communities. In Pennsylvania, cutting these teams will take opportunities away from families to experience an affordable, family-friendly professional baseball game within a local setting. Williamsport, State College, and Erie are each located several hours from a Major League stadium, so losing the local Minor League team would make attending baseball games difficult for families who live in these places. Children and young adults in these communities, including Williamsport, the home of the Little League World Series, would lose invaluable opportunities to watch and learn from talented Minor League players. If these teams are cut, it also creates another issue for local authorities in regard to possibly having an empty stadium to maintain. Minor League Baseball teams promote talent development, encourage fan loyalty, and most importantly, bring communities together.Thank you for your time and please reconsider your proposal as the effect will be felt drastically by local communities who have supported these teams over the years.Sincerely,TOM WOLFGovernorRead the full letter as a PDF or on Scribd.20191202 Letter to Commissioner of Baseball by Governor Tom Wolf on Scribd Governor Wolf Urges MLB to Keep Minor League Teams in Pennsylvaniacenter_img SHARE Email Facebook Twitterlast_img read more

Wasteful West Brom shocked by Norwich

first_img Press Association Hooper scored the opener in the 13th minute, smashing an unstoppable drive into the top corner, before Fer finished off a sharp counter late on to seal a 2-0 victory. West Brom had countless chances to take at least a point from this game with Stephane Sessegnon twice failing to convert great opportunities and Shane Long also guilty of being profligate in front of goal. It is now one win in nine games for the Baggies, and Steve Clarke’s side were booed off at full-time. The midweek hiding against a Luis Suarez-inspired Liverpool had put Canaries boss Chris Hughton’s position under further scrutiny, but he would have been delighted with the way his side responded here to secure an away win for just the second time this season. After starting brightly they took the lead with a wonderful strike from Hooper. Nathan Redmond fed Fer, who picked out the striker’s run with the aid of a deflection off Diego Lugano’s heel. The angle of the pass was taking Hooper away from goal but he fizzed a superb strike beyond Boaz Myhill. Albion sought a quick response with Youssouf Mulumbu, back from suspension, firing straight at John Ruddy after nice link play with Morgan Amalfitano. The Frenchman’s teasing cross from the right then saw Victor Anichebe get in a header which Ruddy gratefully grasped. Norwich were being penned in their own half but Johan Elmander should have done better from a quick break. The Swede’s flick on found Hooper, who quickly returned him the ball. However, Elmander then ignored his better placed strike partner as he drove forward and saw his shot blocked. The hosts were soon back on the offensive, with Ruddy tipping a fierce Anichebe shot wide of goal, before Sessegnon contrived to fail to make any contact with a Chris Brunt corner which found him unmarked. It summed up West Brom’s first half and Clarke made two changes at the break, bringing on Long and Saido Berahino for Liam Ridgewell and, surprisingly, Amalfitano. They helped spark Albion into a very strong start to the second half and they could have had a penalty when a Sessegnon shot, after a goalmouth scramble, struck Martin Olsson on the arm as he made the block. They should have been level in the 52nd minute when Sessegnon surged past two Norwich defenders into the box, but the Frenchman rolled his shot wide of the post having beaten the advancing Ruddy. At the other end Redmond’s pace proved too much to handle for Uruguay defender Lugano, whose vulnerability will doubtless be noted by England manager Roy Hodgson, but the winger’s pull-back could not find Hooper. Sessegnon then spurned another chance after Olsson had gifted the ball to him six yards out, with Ruddy making the save. Long became the latest man to miss for West Brom a few moments later. Mulumbu’s deflected shot fell to him in the area, but his shot was too tame to beat Ruddy. Mulumbu fizzed an effort wide but all the home side’s pressure came to nothing and they were punished as Redmond found Fer for the midfielder to cut inside and fire low beyond a flat-footed Myhill with a minute remaining. Norwich bounced back from their Anfield nightmare as goals from Gary Hooper and Leroy Fer earned them a valuable win over West Brom at The Hawthorns.last_img read more

Men’s hockey: Badgers split Northern Michigan series 1-1, continue dominant start

first_imgComing off a successful 2-0 road trip in New York, the University of Wisconsin men’s hockey team were stifled by a hungry Northern Michigan team Friday before battling back to even the series 1-1 Sunday.The Wildcats (3-6-1) jumped on the Badgers (5-3-0) 33 seconds into the opening period of Friday night’s game to score their first of five total goals.The Badgers answered ten minutes later when star freshman forward Trent Frederic took it himself from center ice to net a top-shelf power play score to put Wisconsin on the board.The Wildcats scored three unanswered goals after Frederic’s effort, shutting the Badgers out in the second period. Northern Michigan set the tone physically from the opening face-off, allowing their defense to hold the prolific Badger offense to just one score through two and a half periods.Head coach Tony Granato said postgame the team missed some important chances.“We couldn’t capitalize on our chances,” Granato said. “We had some power play chances at pivotal points of the game where we could’ve got back in the game and didn’t.”Men’s hockey: Badgers dominate offensively on the road, improve to 4-2The University of Wisconsin men’s hockey team impressed in upstate New York this weekend, sweeping their two-game weekend against No. Read…The Badgers final goal of the game came on a penalty shot after sophomore forward Seamus Malone was hooked on a breakaway following a steal from Wisconsin’s blue line.Other than Frederic and Malone’s individual efforts, the previously-prolific Badger offense could not seem to get past the brick wall led by Northern Michigan’s sophomore goalie Mathias Israelsson. The young goaltender had an impressive 34 saves and held a Badgers team who has averaged 4.3 goals a game to just two scores.Wisconsin’s goaltender made some plays too, but not the kind anyone wants to be remembered for. Five minutes into the second, following the Wildcats third straight score, freshman goaltender Jack Berry replaced the struggling Matt Jurusik who allowed four scores in his 25-minute stint on the ice.“I’m fine,” Jurusik said. “Next time I get the net I’ll be better.”Jurusik’s younger replacement, Berry, kept the Badgers in the game, shutting down all six Wildcat shots on the net and giving the coaches a decision to make regarding the starter for game two.“That’s not an easy situation to come in because if you give up another goal the games over, and he’s done it twice for us against good teams and gave us that chance,” Granato said. “We’re going to make a decision on whether or not he’ll start tomorrow. There’s a good chance he’ll start.”The Badgers took another loss as senior forward Grant Besse slammed into the boards after willing his way to the net in effort to get his team going.“Obviously, he hit the boards hard, and that’s a scary part of the ice,” Granato said. “You’re going to the net, you’re off balance a little bit and you get bumped. There’s not a whole lot of chance to recover, so hopefully it’s not too bad.”A frustrating night and a key injury will prove to be a real test for this young Badger team. Despite the loss in injuries and the scoreboard, the resilient Wisconsin squad rallied and took down NMU Sunday behind a shutdown defensive effort.Berry stepped up in his first career start and recorded 22 saves on the day. Regular suspects sophomore forward Luke Kunin and junior forward Cameron Hughes notched two to give the Badgers the lead before dropping back and securing a huge win for the team.Wisconsin now takes an extended break, waiting to play Merrimack University at home on Nov. 18 and 19.last_img read more
