No meal seems quite so American--or even quite so mouth-watering--as a nice thick porterhouse steak, or a hamburger straight off the grill. The only problem is that these meals appear to be killing us.
Starting seeds in eggshells This is a Eco-friendly way of starting seeds. The next time you eat egg, save the shell because now you can plant in them!
Wash the shells Plant 1 to 2 seeds in every eggshell. So they won’t be crowded when they come out. You can use a marker to write the type of plant you planted in there. So you don’t forget what you planted in there. Put the seeds on top of the soil. Remember not to fill the shell full with soil yet. Water them carefully and then add more soil on top of the seeds. You can use a shower cap to cover the shells. You can put them in a sunny window in a relatively warm area. During the day the seedlings get some sunlight and because they are covered, they are retaining heat and gaining necessary moisture. When you’re transplanting them, you can just break the shell and put them in the soil. This will be a compost too. Or you can also put them in immediately in the container. This is an Eco-friendly way of gardening. This is also very affordable.

This spring, some of my Roosevelt University students and I work Wednesday afternoons at the Chicago Lights Urban Farm, a small but incredibly productive operation in the Cabrini-Green neighborhood on Chicago’s near North Side. This half-acre oasis of green built atop an abandoned basketball court started as a community garden back in 2002. Now, the Chicago Lights staff, volunteers and local youth interns produce more than a hundred kinds of vegetables each growing season from this hitherto derelict property.
