Herb Day – Saturday, October 11, 2008

October 11, 2008

I am always very happy when my copy of Body + Soul Magazine comes in the mail. It is my favorite magazine and I have a 3-year subscription to it. The October issue had a short writeup about Herb Day 2008.

So in honor of Herb Day……Last night I was sitting at the kitchen table admiring my jars of dried herbs, brought home from our garden. I picked up the Rosemary and noticed a lot of mold growing. My heart dropped and I checked the other jars but the Rosemary was the only one. I said to my husband, “Now I know what Charles Ingalls felt like. The loss of a crop.” My husband gave me a look and said, “That was a real crop.” I looked at him and said “Yes but this is my crop, all that hard work out the door.” If you know us well then you know that last year we ordered all 9-seasons of Little House on the Prairie from Netflix and it is our favorite show.

September 30, 2008

Goethe-Institut and Galapagos Art Space Present
“What is Green Architecture?” Monday, October 6, 7:30pm, with Museum of Modern Art Achitecture and Design curator Andres Lepik—FREE

The Goethe-Institut New York presents “What Is Green Architecture?”, a new series of conversations, lectures, and events exploring the cutting-edge developments in the field and their impact on contemporary life as well as implications for the future.

In conversation with moderator Andres LepikSteffen Lehmann will discuss how “Green is the New Black” in terms of emerging urban design principles and strategies for energy-efficient cities beyond the individual building. He will also speak about Australia’s first zero-emission urban development, Taree Waterfront Masterplan.
“What Is Green Architecture?” series curator and moderator Dr. Andres Lepik is currently Curator in the Architecture & Design Department of The Museum of Modern Art. The theme of this presentation is to explore and assess emerging urban design principles and practical strategies for more energy-efficient cities, beyond the scale and scope of the individual building. The talk will reflect on sustainable design on the urban scale and critically examine new strategies for eco cities. This pairing is truly extraordinary as Galapagos Art Space is working towards becoming New York City’s first LEED certified “green” cultural venue.
