April 7 is the day, TXRX on Roberts is the place. Bring your broken stuff to the Repair Cafe, and let us take a look and fix it for you. Repair it, don’t throw it away, is always a good way to do things, and this new effort adds another opportunity to the mix. The first event fixed everything from weed eaters to mowers to toasters to cell phones. Check out Transition Houston for all the details.
We talk about everything from Harvey to Chill Hours to how to get started in gardening if you’ve never done anything close to it before. Listen to this show and check out all the other TAMU resources at: Fort Bend County Extension and Aggie Horticulture.
Blackwood is a farm, an educational center for all sorts of things, 33 acres of ecosystems working together–and it’s a quiet, serene part of our world.

Flooding, Houston: two words that go together, and the Bayou City Initiative has been formed to add a new dimension to the discussion.

It’s only going to work if we stayed involved.
