Join us as we honor Mother Earth. In addition to this bright and beautiful display, we will be showing a different earth-themed movie each day at noon!
Tuesday: An Inconvenient Truth
Former V.P. Al Gore explains global warming, presents arguments that the dangers of global warming have reached the level of crisis, and addresses the efforts of certain interests to discredit the anti-global warming cause.
Wednesday: Planet Earth (Disc 5 – “The Future”)
Rare action, impossible locations, and intimate moments with our planet’s best-loved, wildest, and most elusive creatures.
Thursday: No Impact Man
A writer decides on a grand experiment: to live one year with as little impact on the environment as possible.
Lastly, join us on Wednesday for our first “Seed Share” Social. Organized by Natalie Kahn, Tara Rojas, and Daniela Elliott, there will be a table on the Library concourse from 10-2. Stop by and see what they’ve been working on!
These new collections of FREE SEEDS have been prepared for Leeward CC student, staff, faculty, and community patrons! The seeds, which include heirloom red okra, cilantro, kabocha, Roselle hibiscus (for tea), Pigeon peas, Parda beans, and Hawaiian chili pepper, have all been propagated here on campus, and are ideal for planting in our area this time of year.
Our hope is that the Seed Share collaboration between the library, campus agriculture, and class curriculum will inspire and enable our Leeward Ohana to grow food locally and share seeds and information with others to support a more sustainable food system.
