    Thanks to everyone who lent their support, time, energy, and outreach to yesterday's March Against Monsanto, for which Alchemical was a formal supporter.  There was a great turnout and you can check out some pictures at the following Facebook album page:

    You can learn more about GMO labeling issues at:

    www.gmofreeny.org

    And you can sign a petition for GMO labeling which is currently being hosted at the Syracuse Greens website - http://syracusegreens.nationbuilder.com/gmo_label_nys - which reads as follows:

     

    We have the right to know! Let’s label GMOs in New York State!

    We have a right to know about food we eat and feed our families, but currently we don’t have that ability when it comes to genetically engineered (GE) foods.

    The number and variety of GE foods reaching grocery shelves is accelerating. There are no regulatory requirements for long-term testing for human health risks. Until we know without a doubt that GE crops are safe to eat, we should have a choice about whether we want to eat them. The use of GMO crops also pose significant environmental risks, including the increased use of pesticides.

    Whereas the European Union and various other countries have either banned or require the labeling of genetically engineered foods due to the inevitable health hazards they may cause;

    Whereas we have the right to know what we are eating;

    Whereas the full extent of health effects of genetically engineered foods are not yet known nor have they been proven to be safe;

    We the undersigned call on local, state, and federal lawmakers to require the labeling of genetically engineered foods, starting with passage of the NYS GMO Food Labeling Bill (A3525 / S3835)

    Moving Boxes: Fun Crafts for Kids, From Carrie at Ms. Ward's Delaware School Classroom

    Alchemical in Alchemical Blog on May 08, 2013
    Tagged in: Untagged 

    From Ms. Ward's classroom at Delaware School, student Carrie has suggested a link to us for the Alchemical Nursery website as part of a link exchange with their "Our Environment" website.

    We hope the community will find this link useful in regard to reuse of materials and kids crafts activities.  Move Boxes: Fun Crafts for Kids:

    Cardboard is a big source of waste in areas all over the world, making it very important to recycle and reuse it when possible. Kids can begin to learn how to recycle at an early age by using recyclable materials, such as cardboard, in many craft projects. Art projects can be expensive, but using materials you already have means you are recycling and saving money. Kids, parents, and teachers can use materials found in their homes and schools in their art projects, such as paper towel tubes, bottle caps, and shoestrings. Green art supplies are also a good choice as they are non-toxic and environmentally-friendly. Use the following sources to find many fun crafts using cardboard and other recycled materials.

    Visit the site to find a large selection of additional links for crafting ideas using cardboard boxes! - http://www.upack.com/moving-services/articles/moving-boxes-fun-crafts-for-kids/

    We've also included the link with credit to Carrie in our links section at: http://www.alchemicalnursery.org/component/weblinks/31.html

    Thanks Carrie and Ms. Ward!

    Report from 2012 Bulb Give Away

    2012 Westcott Neighborhood Bulb Give Away Report

    Sat. Oct. 6, the 10th anniversary of the Westcott Neighborhood Bulb Give Away day, was cold and wet. Usually we are out  in the parking lot but due to the elements this year we were all indoors

    In spite of  nasty weather close to 275 people showed up to pick up bags of 18 daffodil bulbs. It was great to see so many familiar faces. 

    We gave away close  to 5,000 daffodils, raised over $200 for the WCC Kid's Club through their bake and pumpkin sale, sold $200 dollars of raffle tickets and handed out hundreds of city wide bicycle maps courtesy of the Syracuse Metropolitan Transportation Council.

    Olan Mack, new Exec. Dir.  of the Westcott  Community Center, attended his first Bulb Give Away day. He said, " My initial expression was WOW!”   Although overcast  for much of the day, the community support of the event was spectacular.  A broad and diverse populous continued to stream into the Center to receive bulbs during the entire event, even during periods of rain.

    Thanks to the Bulb Project Committee for all that you do in coordinating this event and hosting it at the Westcott Community Center.

    Kristinia Starowitz Facebooked us and said "Thanks for a great event yesterday! The "Westcott Neighborhood Bulb Give Away" inspired us to have a "Bulb Brunch" with friends! We all came down to the WCC together for bulbs and checked out all the info. (We loved the Devine Gardens educational table on composting).Then we all went back to our house to share a delicious brunch and talk about our garden plans. In the spirit of the occasion we made some tulip bulb packages for our friends to take home as well. Thanks so much for all your hard work with this project and inspiring us to do something fun together this weekend!"

    The film END:CIV  hosted by Glossary Link Alchemical Nursery was attended by 35 people.  
    Frank Raymond Cetera, staff at The Alchemical Nursery said, "The film seemed to inspire a number of the attendees based upon our conversations afterwards, at which about 20 people stayed to converse with the five panelists during the session titled "Reflections on Resisting the Destruction of the Earth." 

    Video of the discussion is available at the Alchemical Nursery's YouTube channel - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bYDx8jmajzQ. Photos of the event are online at our Facebook page - https://www.facebook.com/AlchemicalNursery.

            
    A special thanks to organizations who distributed literature: Save the Rain, Slow Food of CNY, The Red House,  Cornell Cooperative Extension,  Devine Gardens,  Syracuse Realfood Coop for donating pumpkins to the Kid's Club,  Todd Hollow Glossary Link Compost for donating compost, The Spa at 500 for donating their tent, Larry Hoyt for music,  E.S.F. &  S.U. student volunteers who helped staff tables and breakdown and package the bulbs the night before and Syracuse Soapworks, Carol Watson's Greenhouse and Bluetree & Better Brittle for donating raffle prizes. 

    This year the Bulb Project facilitated the planting of 19,300 perennial bulbs throughout the city.

    Appreciating CoWorking in Syracuse

    Alchemical in Alchemical Blog on Oct 06, 2012
    Tagged in: Untagged 

    Congratulations to 40-Below and the opening of the Syracuse CoWorks project at the Tech Garden.

    http://40belowsyracuse.com/syracuse-coworks-grand-opening/

     

    Even though they call it the first co-working space in the Syracuse area, we want to recognize the visionary Glossary Link Alchemical Nursery community of people whom both administered and participated as members at the actual first co-working space in Syracuse - the Alchemical Spaces Co-working office in the Gear Factory from 2009 - 2011.

     

    For a look back, see some pictures and description of Alchemical Spaces from when it was in operation - http://www.alchemicalnursery.org/news/314-coworking-studio-space-available-on-near-westside.html

     

    Here's a video of the initial Open House - https://vimeo.com/4549011

     

    And finally, A blog post from former Alchemical Spaces co-worker Josh Shear for some of the flavor at the office - http://www.alchemicalnursery.org/component/myblog/co-working-at-alchemical-spaces.html

     

    We all hope that we continue to undertake future offerings in the realm of sharing, and that coworking is just an initial step along the way to an egalitarian existence.  We envision the next evolution in our shared space endeavors to be along the lines of a writer's retreat house, in which those of thought and quill can find solace, quiet, and conversation, and a writer's desk in solitude for contemplation and extrudance of word onto paper (or screen).

     

    Thank you for your past, present, and future support, from the Alchemical Nursery.
