“...and this is my garden”

by Katherine - 0 Comment(s)

I love documentaries. And I'm suggesting that if you see only one documentary this summer, you make it “...and this is my garden”. It’s not new. It’s not big budget (how many documentaries are, though?). But it’s fantastic, fantastic, fantastic!

Actually, I cried as I watched it. It’s not a sad story at all - on the contrary, it’s about an entire community that benefits when its children are taught to tend their own gardens. This is a film about the earth, community, wisdom sharing, food, and self sufficiency, but I can’t describe how uplifting it truly is. After seeing it, I was energized and hopeful and really overwhelmed by the beauty of what can be accomplished with nothing more than water, sunlight, and care.

You must check it out for yourself! We've got it in our catalogue, and here's the film's website.

Access Science!

by Katherine - 0 Comment(s)

Access Science is a fabulous tool for high school students and post secondary students alike.

Encompassing encyclopedia entries, information about discoveries and developments, news stories and biographies, this database is comprehensive, current and very easy to use. From agriculture to veterinary medicine, Access Science is sure to help with science projects, term papers, or as a general reference source. I wish I had known about it during my “it’s due tomorrow?!” days.

For instance, if you’re doing a project about cell division, Access Science will provide you with encyclopedia entries, biographies about geneticists, relevant news stories, and even animations of meiosis. It’s a one-stop shop!

Check out Access Science and a wide variety of other scientific databases on our e-library!

From our e-library, select Science, Technology and Environment, and then Access Science from the list of databases.
