Passing of a Legend

Former ISU Head Basketball Coach Royce Waltman, who led the Sycamores to the NCAA tournament in back-to-back seasons, has died ALEX MODESITT Sports Editor Indiana State University and the entire Indiana basketball community lost a legend late Monday night. Former Indiana State Men’s Basketball Coach Royce Waltman lost his battle with a lengthy illness and passed away at the age of 72. Coach Waltman was an assistant coach under Bobby Knight from 1982-1987 with his last game assistant coaching at Indiana University coming against Syracuse in the National Championship game. Coach Waltman was instrumental in helping Knight rebuild an Indiana program that had lost its way. From Indiana, Coach Waltman moved on to DePauw University where he became the head coach in 1988. He led the Tigers to a 100-36 record and a Division 3 National Championship game in his five years at the helm. Coach Waltman then took on the challenge of rebuilding a University of Indianapolis program that was an afterthought in many college basketball fans’ minds. From the ’92-’93 season through the ’96-’97 season, Waltman amassed 100 wins versus just 36 losses and won a conference title. After his final season at Indiana State, Coach Waltman returned for one season. In the 2007-2008 season he led the University of Indianapolis to a 14-13 record. Waltman left the University of Indianapolis for his final headcoaching destination, Indiana State University. He coached the Sycamores for ten seasons between 1997-2007 and won 134 games, the second most in Indiana State history. Coach Waltman led Indiana State to a

regular season and conference tournament championship, earning two berths in the NCAA Tournament. He was also the first coach to lead the men’s basketball team to a 20win season since the Larry Bird

led team of 1979. In a release from Indiana State University’s Communications and Marketing, Indiana State men’s basketball Head Coach Greg Lansing had high praise for Waltman.

Statesman Staff Report The staff of the Indiana Statesman has won 12 awards for its work during the 2013 calendar year. The Indiana Collegiate Press Association annually hosts a competition to recognize in 27 editorial categories and 16 advertising categories the outstanding achievements of Indiana’s collegiate student journalists. Statesman staff members won six awards for editorial and advertising design, two awards for news and feature story writing and four awards for opinion writing. Among the top honors, former Editor in Chief Ernest Rollins won a third place award for his in-depth coverage of the ISU Foundation’s lack of scholarship funding. The category judge praised Rollins’ work as an “excellent piece examining an important university issue. Well-sourced, reported.” An editorial on the same subject won

Rollins and the staff a first place award and was praised by the judge as “what a student editorial should do: Advocate for students. Well-argued position based on strong reporting.” In the design categories, the Statesman garnered both second and third place “best themed issue” awards for the 2013 ISU basketball preview issue and the summer orientation guide featuring “The World of Dan and Cheri.” The Statesman’s commemorative Larry Bird issue, which coincided with the November dedication of the statue outside Hulman Center, won a second place award in the “best special issue” category. Designer Emily Reed won a second place award for “best full-color house ad” and Heidi Staggs won third place for the 2012-2013 Indiana Statesman advertising rate card. Students won editorial and opinion writing honors in three categories. Former Editor in Chief Brianne

Hofmann won a second place award in the “best opinion column” category and a third place award in the “best entertainment column” category for her commentary on Miley Cyrus. Judges praised Hofmann’s writing as the “strongest columnist voice in the category” and described her as a student who “writes with conviction and authority.” Julian Winborn also earned recognition in the “best entertainment column” for his column about the Hollywood awards season. Former Features Editor Joseph Paul and reporter Amanda Marsh were recognized with a second place award for “best feature series” about ISU student Camasia Foltz’s heart transplant and recovery. Rachel Wedding McClelland, director of ISU student publications and adviser to the Indiana Statesman, said she’s proud of what the staff has accomplished in the past year. “The work of our designers, reporters,

editors, photographers and sales staff just gets better and better,” she said. “I was very proud of our team last year when they brought home five awards for the Indiana Statesman. To more than double that this year is a tribute to their hard work and dedication.” Within the Indiana Collegiate Press Association’s competition, the Indiana Statesman competes for awards in the Division I category, which includes Indiana, Purdue, Notre Dame and Ball State universities. “Two of the four universities we compete against for these honors have very competitive schools of journalism that enroll hundreds of students,” she said. “That’s not the case at ISU. So for us to be as successful as we have been in the past year is very satisfying. The staff deserves every bit of the accolades they’re receiving.” The Indiana Collegiate Press Association represents 25 member institutions.

Letter to the Editor Dear Editor, The Concealed Carry flyer has rhetorical power and is effective at manipulating emotions. But the glamour the Concealed Carry flyer has for women with guns lacks a connection to the real world we live in. Asserting that a woman dressed in heels with long hair, wearing a miniskirt is unable to protect herself unless she has a gun is counter intuitive and harmful to society. Going further, it could be stated that this flyer perpetuates rape culture because a woman wearing such an outfit similar to the one portrayed on the flyer must be prepared and armed because she will be attacked for what she is wearing. Women need guns to really take back the night? This is a direct reference to the event, Take Back the Night, that Indiana State University students and students around the globe put on annually to bring awareness to intimate partner violence. Women do not need guns to

really take back the night, they need rape, rape culture, slut-shaming and victim-blaming to end. The most unsettling irony of this flyer is that it sends a message that access to guns makes women safer from violence. This is built upon a faulty assumption that women are most at risk from strangers and a gun can protect them from that risk. Sadly, though, women are at more risk from people they know and live with. Granted, numbers aren’t poison but the shape of these figures is disturbing, especially with the suggestion of expanding the presence of guns. The U.S. Department of Justice National Crime Victimization Survey found that in 2007, 64 percent of female murder victims were killed by a family member, an intimate partner or an ex. Only 16 percent of male murder victims are killed by family members, intimate partners or ex-partners. Furthermore, abusers who own guns are increasingly

likely to inflict more severe abuse on their partners. According to research by the Center for Gun Policy and Research at Johns Hopkins School of Public Health, “shootings are the most common method by which women are killed by an intimate partner in the United States.” The most common firearm used in a domestic murder is a handgun. A 1997 study in the “Archives of Internal Medicine” found that women who live in houses with one or more guns are more than seven times more likely to be murdered by a family member than women who live in houses with no guns. Overall, a 2002 article in the “Journal of Urban Health” found that women who live in states with higher numbers of guns are more likely to die a violent death than women who live in states with fewer guns. Whatever the appealing message is from Concealed Carry and no matter how it seems to make sense, the raw

numbers show that guns in the home and elsewhere aren’t used for self-defense. National data collected by the Harvard Injury Control Center confirm that guns are more often used to intimidate family members than they are used in selfdefense. Anecdotal evidence is rife with stories of women who stayed with abusers even as violence escalated because of threats towards themselves or their loved ones, threats made all the more credible when the abuser had access to a firearm. This makes guns instrumental not only in domestic murders, but also in the perpetuation of less deadly forms of violence and abuse. The fact of the matter is that guns on campus will not make students safer, especially female students. Feminist Majority adamantly and openly opposes concealed carry on campus. The Feminist Majority

Conceal and carry: a topic that’s carrying too much weight

In America, there are few topics that excites people more than guns. Whether the conversation is on more guns, fewer guns or even the mental health of gun owners, someone is bound to get mad or have their feelings hurt. So obviously I dreaded attending last Political week’s Pizza and Politics Columnist event that presented the issue of guns, but rather than a broad discussion on the topic, Dr. Carly Schmitt focused on the issue of concealed carry on our campus. Though I was not emotionally prepared for the conversation, the discussion of having guns anywhere must be had because the issue is enshrined in our Constitution. I always cringe at the thought of

Somewhat the nerves of ardent opponents. like the Bible, everyone has their own As the event carried on, I came to a understanding of the constitution and is conclusion: I just don’t care about caring fairly certain that they are right about it. about this issue very much.

Bethany Alkire. It is almost to a point where guns Alkire and her pro-conceal-and-carry have become such a cliched topic that cohort provided many excellent points whenever it is brought up someone in to the discussion and may have calmed the room rolls their eyes.

My general disinterest in the issue also stems from the confidence I have that the issue will continue to get the discussion it deserves. People will continue to keep this debate alive and someone will articulate my perspective better than I can. I am far more interested in the policy areas that get overlooked. Wall Street reform is not an attractive issue and, because of that, it needs to be thrown into the public eye somehow. The same holds true for education reform, immigration, elections and even Supreme Court decisions. A great deal of what impacts the country occurs in the unattractive daily political propositions and decisions of our government. Everyone needs to be aware of those issues just as much as we are all aware of guns. So while we are considering guns, lets at least take the time to learn about other political issues.

Movies not the place to search for a relationship role model

Just a fair warning, this column may include spoilers if you haven’t seen “The Notebook” or “The Great Gatsby.” Also, I am fully prepared to receive hateful comments, tweets, venomous snail mail and spontaneous pepper spray attacks on campus the female audience Columnist from after writing this column, but something must be done to address the lack of proper male role models in romantic situations. Attention all guys: men such as Noah Calhoun from “The Notebook” and Jay Gatsby from “The Great Gatsby” should not be your role models when it comes to relationships. Don’t get me wrong, I recognize some of their attributes are admirable. Both characters are caring, hardworking and display self-sacrifice. I would dare say that we need more men like that nowadays. But, this is what I expect from any character that serves to be a protagonist in a romance story. The issue I have with these ideal, romanticized men is that they gave up too much in their youth for one girl. That may sound harsh right now because if you do care enough for a girl, then you will undoubtedly give up a lot of things for her. But these two characters were almost insane. Let’s address Mr. Gatsby first. He had it the worst between these two characters. Gatsby is one of my favorite characters in literature; he displays extraordinary character and timeless, unprecedented class. But he was insane in the sense that he tried to relive the past with Daisy, who wasn’t prepared to share that ideal with him. In the movie he clearly says that “every choice, every move” was for Daisy so that he would someday be with her again. Meaning that his whole existence and

world revolved around Daisy and that green light. Healthy? I wouldn’t say so. Romantic? Sure, I can appreciate that, but he could’ve done so much more as an ambitious, young man. Am I saying that Gatsby wasn’t ambitious at all? No, I watched the movie and saw his mansion, so I get the idea. What I am saying is that a girl, who led him to follow this “crazy-for-Daisy” religion, if you will, formed his ambitions. He was in such a craze he thought he could act like nothing happened and relive the past with Daisy by just picking up where they left off. When confronted by Nick Carraway he replies, “Can’t relive the past? . . . Why of course you can!” That’s a man saying that by the way; not a middle school, lovestricken boy. Gatsby filled his heart with this toxic ideal so much that he disregarded anything that would tamper with or impede it. For example, when Daisy killed her husband’s mistress with the car, Gatsby’s only concern was Daisy’s well-being. Yeah, dude, pay no mind to the dead person your flaky lady friend just killed. The worst part of it all is that Gatsby gets the worst end of the deal at the climax and doesn’t even get reciprocated appreciation from Daisy. Nope, she just packs up and leaves — although I’m glad she reluctantly did so. F. Scott Fitzgerald wrote it best when it comes to describing a crazed man: “No amount of fire or freshness can challenge what a man will store up in his ghostly heart.” Let’s move on to Noah Calhoun. A job well done, he displayed his affection to a girl, went through a difficult breakup and moved on — kind of. Well, except for the fact that he bought an enormous property and renovated it, hoping that it would bring back his beloved Allie Hamilton. Romantic? Absolutely. Healthy? I am going with a “No” again. The time and work spent on the house pretty much made his desire and pain for Hamilton tangible. You could say that individual and collective, expressed in the Statesman and the student staff’s selection or arrangement of content do not necessarily reflect the attitudes of Indiana State University, its Board of Trustees, administration, faculty or student body.

it was a monument of his obsession for Allie. When trying to get over a girl or move on with life, I don’t really think that renovating a house in dedication to that particular girl would help at all. Honestly, Noah did a lot of things right before purchasing the house. I actually think buying and fixing up the house was good for him because that was one of his personal ambitions. What I disagree with is that the house’s purpose changed in order to get back this false romantic ideal he is trying to attain. Fitzgerald’s quote from earlier is extremely applicable here as well. Now let’s switch up the scenario. What if it was the girl in the story who gave up ridiculous, unreciprocated efforts for her man of interest? First off, the guy would be a jerk and then the girl would be viewed as needy or dependent, which doesn’t fit the modern, independent woman today. I would encourage the girl in this hypothetical situation to do the same

thing as what I’m suggesting Gatsby and Noah to do: move on. Endure and find yourself by doing more for yourself, not anyone else. I understand that there would be no story if it weren’t for these characters and their noble attributes and extreme flaws. But, if you’re a guy going through a breakup and trying to get a girl back with the “Gatsby Game Plan,” I would have to tell you to slow down and don’t go buying a mansion. You’re young, in college, with great friends and beautiful women on campus. Don’t throw potential opportunities out the window by letting your ambitions or life be formed by one girl. This is college; you may find a girl ten times better that will appreciate your commitment and time. But you wouldn’t find that girl if you were busy putting up the blue shutters your ex wanted on the mansion you just bought.

“Day of Silence” to give voice to silenced LGBT community Cassandra Hauser Features Editor Students from across the country, including many at Indiana State, will commit to remaining silent Friday in honor of those who have been silenced by bullying. While some may have misconceptions about the intentions of the organization that supports the event, the Gay, Lesbian, and Straight Education Network emphasizes that its four main goals are: to help people recognize issues of calling others names and how to respond effectively; to help people recognize the issue of bullying toward people of any sexual orientation; to encourage schools to start programs which educate students on how to stop bullying; and to educate others and allow students to work together towards creating a more positive learning environment. This year, students can take “selfie” pictures of themselves holding sheets of paper which explain their reasons for participating in Day of Silence. They may share these pictures on Twitter by using the hashtag #DayofSilence. The specific sheet, with which students are writing their information and taking their pictures can be found at this website: selfies. On Indiana State’s campus students participate in their own ways. The student organization Spectrum plays a large role in raising awareness for Day of Silence. Spectrum Vice President Nick Penington — who has participated in Day of Silence since high school and has continued to participate throughout college — said the goal of Day of Silence is to broaden the perspective of the campus community. “Spectrum ... works to unify and represent the gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, queer and allies,” he said. “Spectrum offers a safe and confidential

environment for an­yone who falls along the gender and sexuality spectrum.” Spectrum also reaches out to students who need a safe place to be who they are, he said. Spectrum member Jeffery Eads said the organization strives to offer support. “This organization is important to the campus, because it can either be a refuge

for those who do not know what they are going through or just have questions.” It is important to Eads, personally, to participate in the Day of Silence at Indiana State. “The Day of Silence makes me remember a few of my friends who were part of the LGTBQ that have lost their lives through their change or have been

bullied and harassed just for being who they are,” he said. “This day makes me remember why I am in Spectrum and trying to make a difference on and off campus.” CONTINUED ON PAGE 9

Penington participates in the event because of his own struggles with bullying, but through Day of Silence, he hopes to take a step toward ending bullying. “National Day of Silence is important to me because I am a victim of bullying and harassment. All throughout my high school career, as well as while here at ISU, I have dealt with bullying and harassment,” he said. “Through education, we can make our community a safer place for everyone.” Students who are looking to participate in the Day of Silence or get involved with Spectrum simply need to attend one of the organization’s meetings. The group meets in HMSU room 407 Tuesdays at 7 p.m. Students can also find more information about Spectrum and participating in Day of Silence from Spectrum’s social media websites: Facebook, Twitter, and Tumblr. Members of Spectrum spend time in meetings to design various posters with quotes and statistics on the LGBT community in support of the event (Photos by Andrea Molina).

Flight Academy holds fundraiser for competition Denise Smith Reporter An upcoming fundraising event is designed to assist ISU students in raising funds to compete in regional and national flight competitions. The Indiana State Flight Academy will host the fly-in or drive-in event on April 26 at the Terre Haute International Airport. The goal is to raise $8,000 to benefit Indiana State University’s Air Race Classic team and the National Intercollegiate Flying Association flight team. The AirRace Classic organization for female pilots enables students to participate in the annual All Women’s Transcontinental Air Race - also known as the Powder Puff Derby. The races take place during the summer and routes are 2,400 statute miles in length. Student pilots are given four days to complete the route and win as much as $15,000. The National Intercollegiate Flying Association allows aviation student members in the professional organization to compete against other universities. The purpose of the organization, in existence since 1947, is to encourage and expand the growth and status of aviation education programs nationwide. Junior aviation management and professional aviation technology major Chelsea Noel said she appreciates the opportunities ISU offers student pilots. “I like how we have our own flight school so we can fly more advanced planes than we did in the past,” she said. Noel said that the fly-in or drive-in event will assist the ISU Air Race Classic

team as it competes in the race from California to Pennsylvania. Noel will be a part of the team, along with another ISU classmate and aviation technology instructor Melanie Abel. Several events will take place throughout the day including a runway cruising from 2 p.m. until 2:30 p.m. during which students will show and drive the cars on the airport grounds.

Hoosier Aviation will offer $20 airplane rides. “Most air rides are very expensive and I think that this is very great opportunity for people to see the air at a lower cost,” Abel said. “We also have a surprise with Terre Haute police and their canine demonstration.” The event takes place at Hulman

Regional Airport on April 26 beginning at 11 a.m. and is free of charge. Food will be available for purchase between 11:30 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. If weather is poor, the event will take place on April 27. For more information, students can go to the campus website or their Facebook page at ISU Flight Academy.

Spring Week kicks off with new and classic events Allen Zielinski Reporter It is no secret that spring is a stressful time for the average college student. The hefty load of research projects, looming exams, and now the large number of students scrambling to find off-campus housing for the next school year makes students anxious. It is probably safe to assume that this is the Campus Cupboard’s best time for business with the salty, sugary and energy-fueling snacks available. Through this hectic season, one organization looks to provide students with multiple ways to unwind and enjoy some perks. Indiana State’s Spring week grew out of the excitement from the Tandem races back in the 1970s. Since then, the weeklong event has looked to celebrate the end of another school and give students some down time between all of that paper-writing. Many of these events can be attributed to the student organization Union Board. While Union Board holds multiple committees, such as Homecoming and

Community Service, Spring Week is one of their main events in the spring. Senior human development and family services major, Jodie Biella, has been a part of Union Board for most of her Indiana State career. This year she is the Assistant Coordinator for the Spring Week events. Contrary to the goal of Union Board’s work with Spring Week, Biella’s week will be a whole lot busier. Biella has been working hard to help prepare classic events like the Spring Week kickoff, Tandem and the Blood Drive. New or improved for this year are the Sycamore Remix competition and the Casino and Battleship event. “I am very excited for the Battleship event this year,” commented Biella. While she enjoys the Tandem races and lip-sync showdowns at Sycamore Remix, Battleship is quite unique and new for this year. Students will compete in canoes, complete with water, battling to knock each other out of the boats. As this school year comes to a close and this Spring Week’s events start up, be sure to take some time to revel in all of

the perks and activities the Union Board to go watch groups of students battle is offering students. That final project each other in canoes. can surely be put on hold for a few hours

Classic Spring Week activities like the tandem races will take place along with new events including a blood drive (Photo courtesy of ISU Communications and Marketing).

Sycamore softball mauled by Panthers Blaine Kinsey ISU Athletic Media Relations


Pitching dominated both games of a doubleheader at Price Field on Saturday as the Indiana State softball team fell in a pair of games 2-0 and 5-2 to the Panthers of Northern Iowa. The Sycamores fared no better on Sunday, losing 9-5 and getting swept by Northern Iowa.

Indiana State:

In the first game of the day, the starting pitchers dominated early as there were three combined hits through the first four innings. The Panthers struck in the top of the fifth inning, when a pair of one-out walks came around to score on a single to right field to take a 2-0 lead. In the bottom of the fifth, freshman Erika Crissman hit a one-out double before junior pitcher Yvette Alvarez walked. Both runners then stole one base before sophomore Alexa Cavin walked to load the bases with two outs. The Sycamores came up empty, however, leaving the bases loaded. The Sycamores had chances in the bottom of the 7th, getting runners to second and third with two outs but were not able to get on the board, falling by a final score of 2-0.

The Panthers jumped out to an early lead in the first inning of the second game with a one out solo home run to take a 1-0 advantage. In the top of the third inning, Northern Iowa struck again, scoring one run to extend their lead to 2-0 after 2.5 innings complete. In the bottom half of the inning, freshman Kassie Brown singled to first base before advancing to second on a sacrifice bunt by senior Morgan Allee. Freshman Rylee Holland then singled to the pitcher to put runners on the corners. Freshman Brooke Riemenschneider then walked to load the bases with one out. The Sycamores then got on the scoreboard as Holland and Brown both

scored on a wild pitch to tie the game 2-2. Northern Iowa answered in the top of the fourth with a single run to retake a 3-2 advantage before adding two more in the top of the seventh. The Sycamores could not get any closer, however, as they fell in game two by a final score of 5-2.

Game Three

The Indiana State softball team fell behind early and despite a late rally, lost 9-5 to the Panthers of Northern Iowa Sunday in the finale of the three-game series at Price Field. The Panthers struck early as they scored six runs off five hits with two outs in the top of the first inning to take a 6-0 lead over the Sycamores after one half inning of play. Northern Iowa added on more in the top of the second and two in the top of the fourth to take a 9-0 advantage over the Sycamores after 3.5 innings complete. The Sycamores would not go down easily, however, as they began to rally in the bottom of the fourth. Freshman Rylee Holland led off the inning with a single to the pitcher before senior Shelby Wilson hit a double to right center to score Holland. Wilson then advanced to third on a groundout by freshman Brooke Riemenschneider. After a walk

by sophomore Abbie Malchow, Crissman singled through the left side to score Wilson and cut the Panther lead to 9-2. Again in the bottom of the fifth inning the Sycamores clawed their way back, scoring three runs off two hits. Dickerson led off the inning with a double before freshman Kassie Brown was hit by a pitch. Senior Morgan Allee then hit an infield single to load the bases with no outs. Holland then hit an RBI groundout before Wilson reached on an error to score Brown and Allee and cut the Panther lead to 9-5. The Sycamores could get no closer, however, falling by a final score of 9-5. The Sycamores will return to action Wednesday when they go to play a doubleheader against Indiana University Purdue University of Indianapolis.

Sycamores finish fourth at the Bradley Spring Invitational Kevin Jenison ISU Athletic Media Relations Senior McCall Christopher captured second place as the Indiana State women’s golf team finished fourth at the Bradley Spring Invitational which concluded today after an hour and a half delay due to frost on the course. Christopher had a share of the first round lead as she tied her career low 18 hole round with a 73 and came back with a 75 in Sunday’s final round to finish at 148 which is a career low 36-hole score for the Sycamore senior. She finished two shots back of Evansville’s Kayla Katterhenry who captured her second straight tournament by two rounds of 73 to finish at 146. Butler’s Isabella Lambert and Northern Iowa’s Sarah Boss tied for third with 150s. “The back pins caught us not playing aggressive enough,” Greg Towne, Indiana State women’s golf coach, said. “Then we putted poorly uphill. The girls will figure it out but we will probably see those long type of putts at conference and we need to get better.”

Towne was not totally pleased with the results but was still happy. “This has been a good week considering we were short-handed without Marissa Uradomo,” Towne said. “We are looking forward to hosting at the country club this weekend.” Amanda Smith finished tied for 20th with rounds of 77 and 81 for a 158 total while Erinn Sutton finished 25th after carding a 79 and 80 in the two rounds for a 159 total. Gina Della Camera opened with a 79 and carded an 83 in the second round as she tied for 31st with a 162 total while Andrea Frankiewicz shot 80 and 85 in the two tournament rounds for a 165 total and tied for 42nd. Southern Illinois took the team title with a 617 with Butler second at 619, Northern Illinois third at 622 and Indiana State fourth with a 627 total. The Sycamores were followed by Northern Iowa with a 631, Bradley finished scoring 634, Loyola concluded the tournament with a 635, Evansville with a 635, Western Illinois 645 and Illinois-Chicago rounded out the tournament with a 676.

Container gardening: save money and eat healthier Have you ever gone to the grocery store determined to start your new healthy lifestyle that very day? You arrive at the door thinking there will be no exceptions and you even manage to pass up the baked goods that are right by the door. Then you get to your destination: the fruits and vegetables, only to Nutritional realize that they are much Columnist more expensive than you anticipated! This is a great letdown and can force some to select much unhealthier choices because it is easier on the wallet. One solution, for at least some produce and herbs, is to grow them yourselves. Starting your own garden may sounds like quite some work. It may also sound very impractical if you do not even have a yard or any place to plant them. With the increasing amount of consumers becoming concerned about how processed or genetically modified their food truly is, the amount of container gardens are also growing. In container gardening seeds are planted in a container as opposed to the

ground. They have several benefits and can be done without a lot of space, money, or garden expertise. Benefits of having a container garden are plentiful. For one thing, they are an easier way to start out if you have never gardened before. You can maybe just plant one type of seed the first attempt and focus solely on those plants. If your plants should happen to die, it is not the

end of the world. You do not have to patch and reseed like you would in a yard. You can keep your plants indoors, outdoors or even move them back and forth depending on the weather. This type of gardening also allows for easier collection of seeds for future planting purposes or to share with friends. Wildlife—so if you are near campus: squirrels—are much less likely to dine on your produce and herbs if they are in your house or on your balcony. And of course, seeds are much cheaper than buying produce at the grocery store. You also know exactly where what you are consuming is coming from and what type of fertilizers, if any, were used. Now that you have your mind set on some fresh carrots, moist zucchini bread, or flavoring your dishes with some basil, getting started is not as difficult as you may think. First you need your container. It does not necessarily need to be the type of ceramic pot you used to decorate for Mother’s Day. It just needs to be any breathable container that allows enough space for the roots to grow and an outlet for water. This can even include reusable grocery bags—not the plastic ones—or burlap sacks. You can also use old baskets, patio planters, terra cotta pots or be a little more creative by using an old boot, a claw-foot tub, a birdfeeder, teacups, a metal washtub, used tires, a wooden

bucket, or even some of old dresser or desk drawers. Container gardens do not need to be perfect, they can be whatever you want them to be. If you are not an expert on gardening there are a few things you need to consider before you embark on your journey to fresh, homegrown food. When you purchase the seeds, they should have directions for optimal growth on the package. If not, you may want to research what type of soil is best for that specific plant. Every plant will also have a different requirement for how deep it should be planted and the distance from other seeds it should be. Also, different vegetation will hold moisture better than others or need a specific amount. You will want to see how much you need to water that particular seed and how often. You need to be careful to learn how much sunlight your plant needs. As well as learning if your plant has any specific needs or requirements. Mostly, if you just pay attention to your miniature garden’s needs, you will have fresh produce, herbs, and flowers in no time. Consuming your own vegetation is much more satisfying and just has that fresh taste to it, than picking it up at the store. Whether you choose to focus on one seed or 10 different types of plant life, is up to you. A container garden is a perfect way to learn and sink your roots into the gardening world.
