News from the garden, by: Hilary

Posted by Shawn Gano on August 25, 2010 08:51 CDT

Gardening volunteers met during the social time before the Volunteer meeting on August 12.  This will be a regular meeting time on second Thursdays.  Other volunteers are welcome to join us.

We discussed ways to communicate more often with the group, whether by e-mail or in person, particularly about that all-important chore of Watering.  We decided to have two days a month when we can actively plan ahead to be there, knowing that there's a good chance we will meet at least one other gardener in the garden.  This should lead to more cohesive planning and action!  It will also be a good time for other interested volunteers to see what we’re up to.

These two days will be:
- the first Thursday morning,
- the third Saturday afternoon.....

A nice overview of Harmful Algal blooms (and a brief mention of my Phyto iPhone app) in a podcast (audio) put together by NOAA: http://oceanservice.noaa.gov/podcast/nov09/mw111209.mp3

iPhone Phytoplankton App

Posted by Shawn Gano on January 5, 2010 20:00 CST

Rebekah and I have been working with NOAA and the master naturalists identifying phytoplankton.  As part of that effort I wrote a small iPhone app to help learn the different species and it was featured on the "NOAA World" web site. (It mentions ABNC)

New web site!
