The Drive to Electrify Cars
Saturday, September 3, 1:00 pm (Free Workshop)

Johnson County Central Library

Have you been wondering whether you should buy a hybrid car or wait until plug-in cars are more affordable? John Kurmann of ReEnergizeKC ( will begin the workshop with an overview of gasoline-electric hybrid, plug-in hybrid, and battery-electric vehicles and the potential they offer to reduce oil consumption, carbon dioxide emissions, and air pollution. Then, Craig Volland, Air Quality Chair of the Kansas Chapter, will address the changes we need to make to our electricity grid and regulatory system to maximize the benefits of plug-in vehicles.

Brookside Farmers' Market - FOOD * FLAVOR * FUN - August, 27, 2011

Visit Brookside Farmers' Market

We're in for a beautiful day at the market this Saturday!  Here's what's FRESH:

Gibbs Road Community Farm and Cultivate Kansas City (formally KCCUA)

We’re celebrating the coming end of August on the farm this week. We just know it won’t be long now til we need scarves, gloves and snow boots. We’ve even convinced ourselves we’ll be happy when there is two feet of snow on the ground.
So, this week, we celebrate what August has been and what it has brought us…
Beautiful okra. FAT SWEET POTATOES. Fragrant basil. Lots and lots of summer squash in all shapes, sizes and colors. SQUASH BLOSSOMS. Leeks. Eggplant. Sweet peppers, hot peppers, cucumbers, edamame, scallions, pounds and pounds of potatoes, tomatillos and a few tomatoes. WINTER SQUASH. We’ll also bring beets and nice carrots. No mean carrots ‘round here. We’ll also have plenty of MICROGREENS, sweet potato greens, Funky Fresh Stir Fry mix, some baby kale, a little Swiss chard and purslane for everyone!
Come to market and join in kicking August out!

Bear Creek Farms

59 degrees this morning - after yesterday's 100 - felt soooo good! Fall just can't come soon enough!

This week we'll have ASPARAGUS - this week and next and that's all for the season. We'll also have tomatoes, eggplant (lots and lots of eggplant!), potatoes, onions, cabbage, swiss chard, zucchini, cucumbers, and more.

Looks like Saturday is going to beautiful - come out and enjoy! See you there!
