- Common Ground Toledo - Recap
- Gallery 505 Artists Co-op Opening Night
- Health Corner
Common Ground Toledo met last night to discuss downtown planters, pocket & landscape gardens throughout the city, and the business side of things.
One year after Gary Whiteside asked permission to gardenscape a tiny wedge of overlooked soil at Toledo’s Post Office, CGT is on its way to a city-wide revitalization including downtown planters, the Oregon Trail Marker, and the Memorial Garden adjacent to the Wall of Honor in Kemp Olson Park.
Volunteers welcome to join spontaneous improvement projects like last week’s flash mob weed-pulling at the City Park, and tree planter rehabilitation near the boat launch. Monthly meetings open to interested green thumb types.
Today: Gallery 505 Artists Co-op hosts their locally famous Opening Night event 1 - 8 p.m. today. May Theme: Celebrate! showcasing area artisans and craftspeople across a broad range of media. Enjoy a feast for the eyes while supporting local business, converse with neighbors and talk one-on-one with talented creators, snack and sip.

Finally, a controversial claim: Science Daily quotes this study that establishes a correlation between high testosterone levels and impulsive decisions, saying: A recent study found that when men have high levels of testosterone, they're more likely to rely on their gut feelings than actual information when making a decision. They're also less likely to realize when they're wrong.
