05.23.2011 | Change. Chicken. Curiosity. Clean Air.


Join us this week as we check-​​in and chat change with Kat Superfisky in Brooklyn, John Harnois on his farm in Whitmore Lake, Emily Plews in Columbus, and Michelle Martinez in Detroit! Bam!

Lessons Learned

  • The Big Apple is Green, and Superfisky is basi­cally famous.
  • The brand spankin’ new Ann Arbor Wednesday Night Market opens June 1st (4:30–8:30PM) in Kerrytown and the West Side Farmers Market opens Thursday June 2nd (3-​​7PM!) in the parking lot of Zingerman’s Roadhouse!  Bo​th will have music and other deli­cious things. Mark your cal­en­dars to ‘shop on by’ and say hi to everyone’s favorite fowl farmer John Harnois of Harnois Farms and IHIH’s own green thumb Shannon Brines of Brines Farm!
  • Appreciative Inquiry is comin’s outta Case Western University in Cleveland. Neat.
  • Get your third I/​eye on, says Emily Plews. Curiosity and re-​​flect/​flexion make all kinds of new things possible. Try it, you’ll like it.
  • Particulates (including PM2.5) blow more than just your nose.  Get more info here and sign THIS PETITION in support of the EPA’s strong air-​​toxics standard.  Thank you Michelle and to the Sierra Club for working to keep the air we breath from con­tributing to our pre­ma­ture death(s).   Air. For your health!
