CSC, halls recycle cans for Worker

first_imgThrough a partnership between the Center for Social Concerns (CSC) and the South Bend Catholic Worker, Notre Dame students will contribute to the local community this school year by recycling aluminum cans. The program, called Miraculous Metals, began this week and will continue as long as students support it, said Michael Hebbeler, director of student leadership at the CSC. There are currently 22 residence halls participating in the Miraculous Metals program, Hebbeler said. Students can collect aluminum cans and drop them in designated boxes in their halls. Catholic Worker staff members, as well as people who receive support from the Worker, will collect the cans and bring them to a local recycling center. The cans will then be exchanged for money, which will support the Worker’s daytime drop-in center, Our Lady of the Road, and the nighttime shelter, the St. Peter Claver House. “There’s a men’s house and women’s house, and they take in the poor and marginalized, so people looking for a home, looking for a roof, looking for community,” Hebbeler said. “The houses open up their doors to those in need, and the people live there.” Most of the proceeds will go to Our Lady of the Road, where people can eat a meal, do their laundry or take a hot shower. The center supports 60 to 130 people each day. The funds raised by the Miraculous Metals program will support the center’s operation as well as building repairs. Hebbeler said these funds are especially helpful in the winter when the St. Peter Claver House provides overnight shelter from cold weather. “They like to keep it small for fellowship and community, and they can take up to 10 men each night,” Hebbeler said. “They provide a roof and bedding and coffee and breakfast in the morning.” Hebbeler also said many Notre Dame students regularly volunteer at the Catholic Worker. He said the visits create “a sense of solidarity of walking together.” “There will be Notre Dame students spending the night with the homeless men as part of weather amnesty,” Hebbeler said. “Some of the money [from the metal collection] may be feeding volunteers. That’s what makes the Worker what it is — this sense of community. Notre Dame has a vital presence in the drop-in center and at the Catholic Worker.” Although the project is just beginning, Hebbeler said the CSC is looking forward to seeing the program’s results. He also hopes more Notre Dame students will become involved with the Catholic Worker. “There’s good enthusiasm from the [residence hall] social concerns commissioners, and we have a great partnership with the Catholic Worker community,” Hebbeler said. “We expect this project to bring more students into the community to see the impact.”last_img read more

Early garden

first_imgBy Mike IsbellUniversity of GeorgiaSo you didn’t get your garden planted this spring because theground was so wet, huh? And you still want to plant a garden.Well, plant a fall garden.In most cases, choose early-maturing vegetables. Lettuce,radishes, spinach, turnips and peas can be started from seed.Lettuce and radish can be seeded about every two weeks. Broccoli,cauliflower and collards can be transplanted toward the middle ofAugust to mid-September.For hardy crops like cabbage, cauliflower and collards, countback from your average first frost date (if you know) the numberof days the vegetable takes to mature (if you know that), andplant at that time.Backup planIf you don’t know either of those, then call your countyextension agent and find out.For half-hardy plants like beets and carrots, allow an additionalweek. And for tender crops like beans and sweet corn, allow anextra two weeks. Hopefully, this will keep an early frost fromkilling your vegetables before they mature.The garden pests will be out there, so be extra diligent inwatching for them.You can grow an abundant crop of fall tomatoes, but where can youbuy young tomato plants in the middle of the summer?Cut the suckersThe easiest way to solve that problem is to cut small suckersfrom spring-planted tomatoes and let them grow to full-sizeplants.You may have pinched out suckers at the first of the season, butsome have grown back in the axil of the stems. They should be 4to 6 inches long and have a growing point with several leaves.Sometime this month, cut the suckers from the plant, remove thelower leaves up to the bud and place them in a jar of water foran hour or two.Then plant them in pots for later transplanting or plant themdirectly into the garden. Keep them watered heavily for a fewdays until they’ve taken root.If you don’t want to do that, then simply lop off the top foot orso of a healthy plant and set it in water for a few days, thenplant it directly into the garden. Just don’t forget about. Itwill need to be watered and mulched well until roots form.If you don’t want to do that, just forget the tomatoes.(Mike Isbell is the Heard County Extension Coordinator withthe University of Georgia College of Agricultural andEnvironmental Sciences.)last_img read more
