Upcoming Events:
 

WELCOME to the June 20 meeting of the Care and Share Time Bank (CSTB)!  Our June meeting will be dedicated to end-of-life choices. We will be presented with information from Alice Faryna of the Funeral Consumers Alliance of Central Ohio (FCACO ). The FCACO Mission Statement:

• To promote end-of-life planning and preparation

• To outline practical steps to take before death

• To inform and instruct the public

concerning the funeral industry

• To offer reasonably priced options

for dealing with remains at death

• To monitor the funeral industry on a

local and statewide level

• To maintain public awareness

through action, education and

publications

 

Alice adds:

Our main focus is to educate the public about getting their affairs in order before they are terminally ill, which is a very bad time to make  plans and then find out you can't afford  them. Once you sign a contract you can't change your mind. The presentation will include information about rights of consumers when making arrangements for a funeral and the importance of advance directives.

 

I hope you can join us for this informative and interesting talk!  As usual, our presentation will begin at 6:30 with introductions.  At approximately 6:45, Alice will begin her presentation.

 

You are invited to a scheduled Zoom meeting.

GATHERING ON MAY 16

The May 16th Gathering of the Care and Share Time Bank (CSTB).We met on Zoom at 6:30p.m.

Our May Gathering featured our own Tina Thonnings offering a presentation about permaculture.  Permaculture is so much more than gardening.

A little background:

Back in the mid-90's, Tina Thonnings got the chance to work with Dr. Edgar Cahn of the Time Dollar Institute as a Americorp VISTA Volunteer, both in the Cleveland, Ohio and the Washington DC areas.  When she lived in Columbus, she was a regular Care and Shares Time Bank Member. Tina currently lives in the Cleveland area, taking care of her 89 year old mother.  Tina works as a Volunteer Service Manger (VSM) for Hospice of the Western Reserve.

Tina Thonnings, a lifelong organic gardener, had her 1st garden when she was in 4th grade and delights in growing things with her green thumbs! Being from a large family, much of what she learned about gardening came from her father/family growing up. One of Tina's favorite jobs was the East side coordinator for The Ohio State Extension/Cuyahoga County Office.  Later in her career, Tina had the privilege of learning about Permaculture growing through Farmer John Wright, while working at Shepherd's Corner Ecology in Blacklick (East side of Franklin County).  Such hands-on learning has even more deeply changed the way of gardening and growing food.  Tina is a student willing to share what she has learned about permaculture and growing food at home.

APRIL 18 AT 6:30pm!!
Here's the schedule:

6:30-6:45 We will start off with a brief social time, introducing ourselves and offering any exchange items we have to offer for free.  I feel very strongly that this time to be social is hugely important to our well-being; it’s a precious time for us to greet each other and connect.  I love our community!

 The speaker is eager to share a great deal of information with us and have plenty of time for Q & A, so I would ask that we all limit our introductions and exchanges to about 2 minutes each.

6:45-7:30 The Care and Share Time Bank (CSTB) is proud to present;

Dianne Kadonaga!  Dianne will emphasize her zero waste, sustainable, regenerative, lifestyle and the edible food forest she has cultivated in her suburban backyard.  

Would you like to know how you can turn your urban grass lawn into a vibrant organic eco-system and permaculture-based edible food forest that provides food and habitat for people, pollinators, and the planet?  

Dianne only had to go grocery shopping four times in the last year as the garden provided most of her needs. She uses methods that are free or inexpensive to build soil health, fertilize, and get seeds, and she manages pests without chemicals, pesticides, or herbicides, while reducing the need to water or weed. She gets to enjoy a beautiful backyard that is vibrant and full of life of bees, butterflies, insects, and other bugs, birds, and all creatures. It is a yard where all live in harmony and share in the bounty of nature.

She will also share lifestyle ideas on how to be more eco-friendly and green. 

Dianne has been featured on 10TV and Columbus Dispatch for Zero Waste Families and Eco-friendly lifestyles, and Sunny Glen Garden was presented with the GreenSpotLight award from Mayor Ginther and the City of Columbus in the small business category for demonstrating excellence in sustainable business practices.

We had a wonderful  GATHERING ON MARCH 21 at 6:30pm!!

Our presenter, Art Yoho, would like to start his presentation at 6:45, so I would ask that we all limit our introductions and exchanges to about 2 minutes each.

Art Yoho, who is working on the community solar project for the Cooke Road Corridor Renewable Neighborhood, spoke to us about his project.
 

Art shares, “Community driven and distributed renewable energy is a new model for electric power. It offers the ability for individuals to share in the ownership and benefits and by Doing so contribute to the common good. Caring and sharing in the context of this project has ecological, social, and economic concerns and is wide open for sharing. Practically and perhaps poetically everything we can contribute came from the Sun and now we can receive and contribute even more. This is a great time to be involved.”

Our speaker, Art, has shared a story with us.  “The Sun, caring, and sharing are topics in this document. If it is appropriately serves the audience it is offered as perspective only, not persuasion. I will only refer to it if asked and the presentation will be focused on the specifics of our neighborhood driven desire for a life style of zero emissions. “
