Today, June 2nd, is Clean Air Day & Hunger Awareness Day (Canada). Incidentally all week long, June 2-8, we'll be celebrating Bike to Work Week.

In our small city we are fully aware of the limitations for cycling. Few safe lanes for cyclists, narrow side streets... busy highway and long open sections of road ways with no shade from summer heat. However, the city staff has greatly improved many of the bike friendly parks and the Trans Canada Trail (made on the former railway track beds) also runs through the city and has been greatly improved as well. Tree planting is encouraged every spring in the daily newspaper's gardening segment and many community groups have done planting projects over the years.

Yesterday, when I heard that we were facing Hunger Awareness Day, I thought it would be a good time to remind everyone of the huge pressure facing the support systems in place for the under-privileged (missions, food kitchens, church support programs and food banks, among others). Every little item that we can afford to donate can have a huge impact on the community. Try growing an extra row of everything in your garden, and donate that produce or flowers to the appropriate place. Perhaps you have extra seed for gardening that others could use? It may seem like a small thing - but you are helping in so many ways; in feeding people, in creating a caring and sustainable community and inspiring others along the way.

Today’s guest was Melissa Van Rossum - author of 2 books: All You've Ever Known & Their Way Home, and is also the founder and CEO of a multi-million dollar corporation.
