Herstory—News about Wimmin, Women and Wymin. Leotins Giurgiu—Dairy farmer in Rasca Pies, Romania. “I’m planning to donate more than 80 gallons because God helped me to raise my daughter and my children by self. So I can save some milk for orphans.” She is passing on the gift that she received in the form fo a cow she name Ruji in March of 2012. The milk she donates is turned into cheese, yogurt and other products that are delivered to a dozen orphanages in Culj-Napoca. She gives the milk she doesn’t donate to the orphans to her five children, her six grandchildren and her mother-in-law. Elvvy Musikka -one of a handful of

necessity and acquitted her of drug possession. ``I would be blind if I didn`t smoke,`` she says. Photo: Elvy holds her can that she gets every month containing 300 joints. Living in Florida, Elvy Musikka bought the Reefer Madness story, hook, line and sinker. As her already bad eyesight continued to deteriorate, she endured prescription pharmaceutical drugs which had uncomfortable side effects, but little effect on her glaucoma. Turning to ever more desperate measures, Elvy agreed to undergo a risky surgery on her better, right eye. The operation left her blinded in that eye. Only then did she consider suggestions to try using marijuana to reduce the buildup of inner eye pressure. To her grudging surprise, she found that it seemed to work.

Heroic caregiver who defended her medicinal cannabis distribution and helped change California Law. "I know from smoking pot for over 30 years that this is a medicine that works. It works for the wasting syndrome; these kids have no appetite; but when they eat a brownie, they get out of bed and make themselves some food. And for chemotherapy, they eat half a brownie before a session, and when they get out, they eat the other half. It eases the pain. That's what I'm here to do." She was arrested three times for her crime of being a Good Samaritan who took great personal risks to bake up and deliver free medicine for people with AIDS. She also inspired the formation of the San Francisco Cannabis Buyers Club. When she died in 1999, a memorial was held in the streets of San Francisco.

Groups / Public Service TAKE A BIRD UNDER YOUR WING at the Audubon Center for Birds of Prey, 1101 Audubon Way, Maitland, FL32751 (407/644-0190) This is one of the premier raptor rehab facilities in the nation. It specializes in top-of-the-food-chain predators and scavengers: hawks, kestrels, falcons, owls, kites, ospreys, caracaras, vultures and eagles. The center receives between 500 and 600 injured or orphaned birds annually. Since it opened in 1979, more than 8,000 birds have been treated at the center; more than 3,500 -including 206 bald eagles -- have been re-
leased back into the wild. Some birds that can't be released are kept on display. When the center reopens this summer after a major expansion project, Project Wingspread, it will have more than 70 birds of 21 species with whom humans can go eye-to eye. Outside will be a butterfly garden, an urban wetlands demonstration project and a boardwalk and gazebo from which people can get a look at the new and improved flight area for recuperating birds. The Center holds an annual Baby Owl Shower each Spring - people bring in

baby gifts such as blankets and money for the little owlets. The Adopt-aBird program is a major source of fundings for the Center. This program allows individuals to become adoptive parents of specific permanently injured birds with contributions helping to offset the cost of food and care.. Adoptions start as low as $35 and include an adoption certificate, color photo, bio and species info, free admission to the Center and a subscription to the Florida Raptor News. http://fl.audubon.org/ audubon-center-birds-prey

place on a recently integrated basketball tem. He married a white woman against the will of he parents and others, and with her by his side he entered a life of professional basketball that eventually led him to the European league in Belgium. Allen began to grow food alongside Belgian farmer friends, rediscovering his love for the land. When his basketball career ended, his family moved to Wisconsin, just outside of Milwaukee. Growing Power, Allen’s urban farming organization, was born after he saw a foreclosure property that included several greenhouses in the middle of Milwaukee. He bought the property and used it to grow good food for the surrounding low-income community. He taught kids from the local YMCA
to grow food, and he offered jobs o older youth. It was through Heifer International that Allen began using worms as a source of organic fertilizer. Those worms became a bedrock of his operation, enabling Allen to produce rich soil from which he could grow thousands of puns of vegetables on a small plot of land He received the 2008 MacArthur “Genius” Fellowship for is innovation in small-scale and urban farming. Allen invites us all to join in. “We are changing the food system block by block, hoop house by hoop house,” Allen writes. “Join us. Pick up a shovel, get your hands dirty, and lets begin.” http://www.growingpower.org/
SEXING -How to tell whether your horny plant is male, female or hermaphrodite. The flowering process for both males and females begins when plants are exposed to compete darkness for 12 or more continuous hours per day. outdoors, the sun's diminishing rays in early autumn force cannabis to bloom. indicas will show sex sooner than sativas, so be patient with the longer-flowering varieties. HERMAPHRODITE - When a plant shows both male and female flowers, it's considered a hermaphrodite and should be
immediately removed from the garden. Whether you use these for cooking, making bubble hash or tossing into a compost pile, get rid of them as soon as you discover them. MALES -A week or two into flowering, when males truly begin to show, they'll look like a miniature bunch of bananas hanging down as they slowly beginning to swell with pollen. You have less than
a week to remove the males from your garden at this point. FEMALES -Female flowers begin to show as bracts at the various bud sites that occur at branch nodes and tips. Two white hairs (stigmas) will emerge. The bracts gradually swell, becoming covered in a "resin" made up of glandular trichomes-the tiny THC-containing crystals that glisten like diamonds in the light.

Allen embodies the just-do-it attitude of a sports sensation, not waiting around until all of the grants come in and every element is in place.

Allen’s father, an illiterate man who “was good at reading things besides words” - hunting, fishing, building and farming. Allen helped his father on the farm, “growing food, by necessity, before I was 10 years old.” He grew tall and discovered basketball just before high school. He played through college, where he received threatening letters from the Ku Klux Klan because of his

Ode for Moms—Be glad that she nags you. She is doing the best that she knows how. Encourages you or maybe she doesn’t, guides you, even when you don’t want it. Her voice will stay with you even after she is gone, and she will leave you one day. Until then, look for the good, cherish each word, each look, each smile, each touch. It is gone too soon. “Whenever something went wrong when I was young - if I had a pimple or if my hair broke - my mom would say, 'Sister mine, I'm going to make you some soup.' And I really thought the soup would make my pimple go away or my hair stronger.” -Maya Angelou “What do girls do who haven't any mothers to help them through their troubles?” -Louisa May Alcott “Biology is the least of what makes someone a mother.” - Oprah Winfrey

Zai Pits or Zay, is made on
land which is not very permeable. Zai are holes dug approximately 80 cm apart to a depth of 5 to 15 cm, with a diameter of between 15 and 50 cm . Zai improve infiltration of the captured runoff. The holes are deepened each winter. Improvements in the traditional pits by the addition of fertilizer and organic matter (compost) have resulted in dramatic improvements in yield. The Zay technique is used in Mali, and in

Home and Garden Burkina Faso in the Yatenga and Niger provinces where locally it is called Tassa. The holes, filled with runoff water, extend favourable conditions for infiltration for as long as possible after runoff events. In case of too much water, such as during a storm, the debris placed in the pits as compost soaks up the excess water easily, effectively storing the water and creating a damp environment around the plants.

is important to make sure that the holes are correctly dug and that the debris is evenly placed in each hole. The holes must be checked each winter, they must be filled with organic matter as required. Zai improve groundwater recharge. Zai also limit the volume of runoff and, hence, the extent of soil erosion.
