The Akron Home and Flower show was this weekend at the John S Knight Center and of course we went. The Knight Center is a nice intimate setting for a flower show. It has a wonderful stage area which has the Akron skyline as a backdrop. Every time we go to downtown Akron, we have a great time.
This year Ed Begley Jr was one of the featured speakers. We heard Mr. Begley speak two years ago at the Akron Show, so this year we made a point of getting there early enough to get a seat. His talk on sustainable living is full of common sense solutions and to my continued surprise and admiration, adheres to all the rules of economics. There is no pie in the sky, lost in the woods ramblings. We can all have a smaller footprint than we do now. Even though Mr. Begley was preaching to the choir, it was still fun to hear. You could tell the audience was working their own check list, making check marks next to every suggestion.
Jan at Thanks for Today has a gardeners’ sustainable living project in March. Last year’s entrants were a fount of knowledge. It fits right in with Mr. Begley’s philosophy.
