You must (sniff) read this beautiful blog post by Lorna Yee of The Cookbook Chronicles titled:

service learning

Sarah Percoulis writes an informative article in GOOD on service learning.

Service learning is an educational practice where teachers take the knowledge and skills taught in the classroom and apply them to service projects in the community. Students not only learn about traditional classroom subjects, but they also become empowered to make their own decisions about doing good in their community. Since no age group is too young or old to be involved, all age levels (K-12 and beyond) can be included.

Here are some great resources to get started:
The LEAGUE,  a K-12 service-learning support organization
Learning to Give,  curriculum division of The League
Learn and Serve, America's National Service-Learning Clearinghouse
Youth Service America

his potential is ours

I love a good twist.
I love to be creatively surprised... I hope you do too.

BP Oil Spill 2010

My heart breaks at the sight of dead sea turtles and birds coated in oil...

Can you give money? Go to Audubon Society Donate or Global Green Donate

At very least we can call upon our leaders and insist on renewable energy now. Demand legislation requiring more regulation on our oil, coal, and gas sectors.

Let's protect our planet - human lives and the natural systems that give us life.
