Green Noble Reading and Action Group
This study group is considering the momentum that is growing in the neighborhood around "green" initiatives. There are long established community Gardens and newer ones. There's a Pocket Pollinator project with 10 neighbors on one street. Some vacant lots are being used for gardening by our refugee population. Talk is going on about "green" housing projects. the Noble Gardeners' Market will open in 2020 from August 1 - September 19. This group is looking at both specific issues as well as big picture topics to learn how the Noble neighborhoods can develop a new green identity.

As Tom Gibson has said previously, our next meeting will be a discussion about the book Braiding Sweetgrass by Robin Wall Kimmerer. We now have several copies of the book for you to come pick up at the Library. Just tell a staff member that you are here to pick up the Green Noble book and they will get you a copy. I've just started it and am finding it fascinating so far.
The next meeting is on May 9 at 3 pm.
Our speaker at Green Noble’s Zoom meeting at 3 PM on Sunday April 11 will be Sara Continenza, a young dynamo of gardening and food education. Sara is one of those gifted educators who relates especially well to 7th and 8th graders and who has worked with kids throughout Cuyahoga County. https://spectrumnews1.com/oh/columbus/news/2020/05/18/nonprofit-not-letting-pandemic-stop-growth-of-food-and-futures. I’ve asked Sara to talk especially about her program around the Coit Road Market, our very near neighbor to the north. Could we find a way to integrate her approach to gardening education into our local schools?
Do You Name Your Plants? (a reminder and short readings for next Sunday, March 14, at 3 PM) “Horticultural Therapy At Home”

We're going to re-start our Covid-delayed Green Noble meetings with a great new film: David Attenborough's A Life on Our Planet.
