Gary says: Our house smells like Christmas.
Common Ground Garden Community convened last night to put into action decorating plans for Toledo including over a dozen planters and pocket parks such as their original River’s Edge landscape project at the Post Office. Natural and seasonal ornamentation plus illuminated strings will “light up the town,” as decreed by Mayor Dobosh. Restoring a traditional lighted tree as a centerpiece is primary, location TBA.
Monday and Tuesday volunteers will convene to gather and assemble materials for the planters and parks, installation taking place shortly after Thanksgiving day.
Spring planning is underway as well.
Common Ground Garden Community is on Facebook, where updates will be posted throughout the week and over the weekend.

Look who has a shiny new website!
Optimum health starts from the ground up, and Toledo’s own Native Soil Farm shares this Facebook post on the the importance of seed saving and the Native American Seed Sanctuary.
Last week I listened to this podcast on Chronic Inflammatory Response Syndrome, including the role of Mold Illness with Dr Ritchie Shoemaker of rural Maryland, a climate much like our own. While illness acquired following exposure to the interior environment of water-damaged buildings (WDB) comprises the bulk of Shoemaker’s daily practice, other illnesses caused by exposure to biologically produced toxins are quite similar in their “final common pathway.”
His website is labeled, appropriately, SurvivingMold.com.
