Workshop on constructing a composting bin and/or a worm bin 10/05/2010 09:30 AM - 12:00 PM

Have you every wondered if those kitchen scraps - the eggshells, carrot tops, tomato and potato skins, etc. - might be put to better use than filling up the County landfill? The answer is "yes". You can make your own "black gold" from those scraps in the form of garden compost. There will be a workshop on Oct. 5 starting at 9:30 a.m. at the Core Sound Waterfowl and Heritage Museum to show you how to build a compost bin and to teach you what to put in it, how to maintain it, and how to use the finished product. For those with smaller spaces and less scrap waste, you will learn about composting with worms, and how to build a worm bin. This workshop, sponsored by the Carteret County Cooperative Extension Service and it's Master Gardener Volunteers, in partnership with the Museum, is free and open to the public. Register here online, or call 222-6359.

THANK YOU FOR YOUR INTERST.



In garden design we create vignettes when we take a collection of objects and plants and display them in groups in small spaces around the garden. The various vignettes make a garden space personal and add warmth, interest and personality to not just that particular space but to the entire garden. A ho-hum garden overflows with unrelated items and plants. When objects are correctly placed in a group, they allow the eye to catch a glimpse, rest and enjoy the vignette space. 

When we take objects and plants that we love or that have special meaning to us, and arrange them in a space, we are creating a happy and delightful space that has special meaning to us. We are offering to share it as well to those that may be present in our garden. We can add drama and interest to a corner, walk, niche or really any space that has the potential to hold a collection of items and plants. The effort can be minimal but the result can have high impact visually.

The key to a well-styled vignette is composition and balance, and it includes the following design elements: varying the heights, textures, colors, and sizes of the objects and plants. Layering is very important to vignettes. Having objects both in the foreground and the background move the eye comfortably. Think about a theme, and use odd numbers, say three or five grouped together. Try unexpected combinations. Decide whether you want a symmetrical or asymmetrical arrangement.

Begin with a favorite plant. Take a picture of the plant in its surroundings.  Blow it up to screen size on your computer. On paper start listing what you would like to see in the vignette. The following are some guidelines for building a vignette.  I use seven of the basic art principles. Choose objects (garden art) and plants to support the style and décor theme of your garden. Keep your art pieces in proportion to the garden. Decide on your style: classic, artistic/contemporary, resourceful/rustic, romantic, Asian, tropical, or eclectic. Use color to coordinate your vignette.  Color used sparely can make a vignette POP!  Use objects and plants in odd numbers. Groups of three or five work particularly well and are stronger visually. Lots of small objects may result in clutter. Vary the height of objects and plants. Stick to your theme. Create depth by placing objects or plants from the back of the flat surface to the front. Vary the textures. Use weathered wood, pottery, glass or iron architectural elements to introduce an unexpected texture.

Above all, have fun with it, but remember that you might have to stretch your definition of art! Put your signature on your garden.

Lunch & Learn: Vermicomposting 04/09/2014 12:00 PM - 01:00 PM

Vermicomposting n. The use of worms to convert organic waste into fertilizer
 
Worms are a great addition to any gardener’s project. Be it to fertilizer indoor plants or your vegetable garden, worms bring many great benefits to your gardening. 
 
North Carolina's estimated 420,000 tons of food waste are buried or burned each year at considerable financial and environmental cost. Instead of discarding your food scraps, you can recycle them with the help of worms. Vermicomposting (worm composting) turns many types of kitchen waste into a nutritious soil for plants. When worm compost is added to soil, it boosts the nutrients available to plants and enhances soil structure and drainage.
 
You will learn the basics of composting using worms:
  • Type of worm to use and basic information about worms
  • Supplies needed and how to build a worm bin
  • What to and what not to feed the worms by using your very own food scraps and the methods of feeding
  • Benefits of worm castings and worm juice.

The Many Faces of Islam: Beyond the Headlines
There are approximately seven million Muslims in the United States. These men and women come from all walks of life and from a range of ethnic and racial backgrounds. This presentation will help audiences better understand Islam in all its diversity in the US and abroad. Who are these Muslims in America and how are they perceived by non-Muslims? What is the history of Islam and what are some of the major challenges facing Americans in trying to better understand the religion, both its ideals and practice? Indeed, what is the experience of being Muslim-American post-9-11? The presentation will help audiences better understand Islam in all its diversity as seen from the perspective of a scholar and teacher whose own Christian and Muslim backgrounds may help to illuminate the complex and often misunderstood histories and cultures of Muslims in the U.S. and overseas.

 
Guest Speaker:  Dr. Omar Ali
Historian, Associate Professor of African American and Diaspora Studies at UNC Greensboro,

All of us have visible and invisible dimensions of diversity.  “Visible identities are the social identities that others can see — the things that can be observed such as race, gender expression, age — and invisible identities are the more subtle identities that are not always visible — the things that are under the surface. These can include being LGBT, having a veteran status, work roles, socioeconomic status, or having a learning disability. Reclassifying how we look at diversity, shifts the discussion toward inclusion.  At the conclusion of this series participants will be able to:

  • Emphasize the importance of acknowledging and respecting others (i.e., those of different races, ethnicities, sexes, genders, abilities, religions, socioeconomic statuses, sexual orientations, and so on).
  • Expand these conversations to include faculty, staff, students and other campus educators so that they are informed about invisible dimensions of diversity.

 

INAUGURAL SESSION - FEBRUARY 5, 2019

Diagnosing Diversity and Inclusion, By Dr. Alex Graves

Talley Student Union, Room 3222

The College of Agriculture and Life Sciences is devoted to promoting inclusion and awareness of diversity issues to our students, faculty, and staff.

But what exactly is diversity? Is it just the race and cultural background of a person? Or is it only a type of personality? What is inclusion?  Is there a difference between diversity and inclusion? Considering many trainings about diversity and inclusion are available, few people seem to really understand the meaning of it. So let’s understand what diversity and inclusion really means and stands for.

 

Who can participate:

The entire University Community including Faculty, Staff, Students, and other Campus Educators

Why you should participate:

Some benefits of participating will be - exploring questions about diversity, gaining fresh, new perspectives, sharing and learning from the stories and experiences of others and building rapport and relationships with colleagues. 

In addition, participants who attend all six sessions will be presented with a certificate of completion for successfully completing the requirements of the Spring 2019 Conversations that Matter: Learn at Lunch, Bringing Visibility to Invisible Identity Groups Series.  This certificate demonstrates your accomplishments in gaining skills that can be used to foster a more inclusive environment.

PLEASE REGISTER AS SOON AS POSSIBLE AS SEATS ARE LIMITED AND FILL FAST


Upon Registering Please be advised That:


Because this is a high demand retreat there is a limit on the number of employees allowed to participate per session.  This ensures a full and rewarding experience to each person in attendance.  

It is very important that all participants and wait listed registrants carefully consider this commitment and plan accordingly, by reserving the workshop time on their schedules.  
The Opening Doors retreat requires 3 days and 2 days of overnight stay in a 
two (2) registrant per room hotel/styled lodging facility.  The retreat begins on 10:00 a.m. Wednesday, October 8th and will end at 3:00 p.m. on Friday, October 11th.  Your registration to attend is a commitment.  Due to the need to effectively manage resorces used to provide this opportunity, please inform our office immediately if you can no longer commit to the entire retreat.  If you are wait-listed, we ask that you, please, allow the wait list to remain as useful as possible by informing our office that you no longer wish to wait, which will remove your registration from the wait list and allow other wait listed registrants, who are sure they can wait, to move forward on the list.  Please contact Ms. LaTosha Bradley, via e-mail at latosha_bradley@ncsu.edu or via phone at 919.513.0739, as soon as possible to review all concerns.

Finally, please don't hesitate to contact our office, via email at latosha_bradley@ncsu.edu, cals_diversity@ncsu.edu, akgraves@ncsu.edu, or via phone at (919) 513-0739, with any questions or concerns you may have about the 2019 Opening Doors retreat, and please accept our most sincere gratitude for your interest in assisting our College and University explore ways to enhance our understanding of difference and inclusion.

It is very important that all participants and wait listed registrants carefully consider this commitment and plan accordingly, by reserving the workshop time on their schedules.  
The Opening Doors retreat requires 3 days and 2 nights of overnight stay in a 
two (2) registrant per room hotel/styled lodging facility.  The retreat begins 10:00 a.m. on a Wednesday, ends at 3:00 p.m. on a Friday.  Your registration to attend is a commitment.  Due to the need to effectively manage resorces used to provide this opportunity, please inform our office immediately if you can no longer commit to the entire retreat.  If you are wait-listed, we ask that you, please, allow the wait list to remain as useful as possible by informing our office that you no longer wish to wait, which will remove your registration from the wait list and allow other wait listed registrants, who are sure they can wait, to move forward on the list.  Please contact Ms. LaTosha Bradley, via e-mail at latosha_bradley@ncsu.edu or via phone at 919.513.0739, as soon as possible to review all concerns. 

If we encounter any concerns with your registration for the retreat, we will notify you as soon as possible. Otherwise, we will confirm your participation, with suggested pre-reading materials, as soon after you register as possible, but usually, and depending on when your registration is finalized, no later than a week before the workshop is set to begin.  

Once our office can confirm no registrant conflicts for each registrant, (e.g. no supervisor/supervised relationship amongst registrants) registrants, not placed on the wait list, should expect to receive a confirmation message, and additional messages with important retreat details and reminders to follow throughout the months leading up to the retreat's start date.  As such, please be sure to provide an email address that you will be able to monitor regularly for these messages.

Finally, please don't hesitate to contact our office, via email at latosha_bradley@ncsu.edu, cals_diversity@ncsu.edu, akgraves@ncsu.edu, or via phone at (919) 513-0739, with any questions or concerns you may have about the 2019 Opening Doors retreat, and please accept our most sincere gratitude for your interest in assisting our College and University explore ways to enhance our understanding of difference and inclusion.

*Transportation will only be offered if two or more participants show an interest in driving a state provided van, from the NC State University, Raleigh, NC Brickhaven location to the Eastern 4-H Center and back.
