National Landscape Architecture Month on #Landscapechat w CoronaTools

 

2014 National Landscape Architecture Month (NLAM) is celebrated by the American Society of Landscape Architects (ASLA) with the theme of Career Discovery and a focus on underrepresented minorities. The U.S. population will be much more racially and ethnically diverse by 2060, according to projections by the U.S. Census Bureau. NLAM 2014 will spur a countrywide movement, teaching children, young adults, and even teachers just how artfully landscape architects design their world. From community parks to residential design, there’s a field out there for any ambitious student, regardless of their background.

The live chat begins Wednesday, April 16, 2014 at 11 a.m. PDT / 2 p.m. EDT, where we come together with green industry experts and fellow landscaping peeps each week to discuss all things related to landscape, since 2011.

Discussion Overview

There are seven take-aways from this week's #Landscapechat

  • Your Path - ASLA staff redesigned the Career Discovery website. On this beautifully designed, interactive webpage, future landscape architects can take a tour of the profession and watch as OLIN’s Columbus Circle project in New York City goes from design, to construction, to the beautiful public space it is today. 
  • Local Events - From Earth Day celebrations, to lecture series, to walking tours of the city, landscape architects from across the country are going out in their communities to raise awareness and excitement for landscape architecture. Find out what’s happening near you at asla.org/NLAMevents.aspx 
  • Social Media - ASLA has started an extensive social media campaign relating to NLAM, called “30 Days of NLAM” – each day features a new challenge for ASLA’s Facebook and Twitter followers to perform. Join the conversation and see what today’s challenge is by checking out our pages or #NLAM. 
  • Career Discovery Packets - To reinforce the theme of Career Discovery with an emphasis on underrepresented minorities, ASLA has redesigned their middle/high school Career Discovery packets. Focusing on sharp content with a visual design, these new handouts give a succinct overview of the profession while urging students to explore ASLA’s other resources. 
  • NLAM Pledge - Landscape architecture students and professionals alike are taking the NLAM pledge to hand-deliver these new Career Discovery packets into local middle and high schools and informing them about the profession before they get into college. 
  • NBM Programs - Celebrate NLAM at the National Building Museum in DC through two featured events. On April 6th, the World Premiere of Evan Mather’s film From Sea to Shining Sea took more than 100 of local residents on a cross-country tour of the American landscape. On April 23rd, NBM will host a lecture, Reed Hilderbrand and the Legacy of Dan Kiley as part of their Spotlight on Design series. 
  • Tools for Teachers - K-12 teachers seeking ways to bring landscape architecture into the classroom should check out ASLA’s new education hub, Tools for Teachers.  It is loaded with fun, free classroom activities that will inspire lesson plans and start classroom dialogues about landscape architecture. It includes links to all of ASLA’s educational resources.

Vermicomposting in the Garden on Landscapechat

 

VermicompostingRickCarrRodaleInstitute

Live in an apartment but want to make compost for your houseplants? Does your HOA covenant prohibit traditional compost heaps? Want to compost at the office? Maybe the kids want to try composting at school.  
Vermicomposting or Worm Composting may be the answer!

Why compost? 
Composting is known as "making black gold" for the plants in the garden or for houseplants, and is a good idea because it can:
  • Decrease your carbon footprint
  • Reduce the amount of solid waste added to landfills
  • Improve soil quality for veggies on the balcony or for indoor plants
  • Save money on potting soil
  • Is an easy and fun science project
  • Can increase popularity when you use compost as gifts (just joking, it’s too precious to give away!)

The live chat begins on Wednesday, April 9 at 11 a.m. PDT / 2 p.m. EDT, where we come together with green industry experts and fellow landscaping peeps each week to discuss all things related to the landscape, since 2011. Join @CoronaTools and #landscapechat co-partner @RodaleInstitute Compost Specialist Rick Carr for this week's topic: Vermicomposting or composting with worms!

Discussion Overview
5 Takeaways from Compost Specialist Rick Carr: 
1. Vermicompost uses the action of worms to break down foods at room temperature. But they can't do it alone; also involved are a diversity of bacteria, fungi and arthropods and many macro-organisms. 
2. Embrace balance and remedy imbalance. Troubleshoot when problems occur. 
3. No food showing. Keeping your food stuff covered with newspaper will prevent potential odors and fly nuisances. 
4. Diversity reigns and uniformity pains. Use diverse food scraps to encourage a diversity of organisms. 
5. Benevolent neglect. Worm bins don't require constant attention. Checking less is best, so as not to disturb the worms.

Discussion Overview 

studentcareerdaysPLANET CareerFair 200x200

There are five key takeaways that will be covered during the live chat: 

  • What is SCD?  Student Career Days (SCD) is the “National Collegiate Landscape Competition", a career recruitment event for college students studying horticulture and landscaping. This year, the University of Colorado will host SCD on March 23-24, 2014.  The Twitter hashtag for the event is #PLANETSCD for up to the minute information. A Photo Album shows many aspects of the event from past years. 
  • What are some of the events that take place?  There are three key elements for students to participate in at Student Career Days:
Educational Sessions and Workshops:

The leaders in the green industry will be presenting workshops and PLANET CDS sessions for students and faculty on topics you might not otherwise have the chance to learn about. By participating in the workshops, PLANET Career Development Series sessions, and the tour, you will be exposed to the latest information available on topics such as irrigation, arboriculture, estimating, and leadership skills 

Attend the Largest Career Fair in the Industry:

We have nearly 75 companies from all over the country participating in our Career Fair! They are all looking for qualified employees for full-time positions and internships. Students and faculty should take this opportunity to meet as many companies as possible, and make those all important connections. Students should come prepared with resumes and be ready to interview on the spot.

Compete Against Your Peers in 28 Events:

    Student Career Days features a series of competitive events designed to challenge students based on current industry standards. Each competition is coordinated by green industry companies — they design the competition, they set it up, and they judge it — so the competitions are as true-to-life as it gets. See how you compare amongst students from across the country!

    • How do students get jobs through SCD? 

    Interaction between competitive landscaping events and Sponsors, plus a Career Fair with more than 75 companies actively recruiting  

    • Why is it important for the industry to support students? 

    Lawn, landscape, tree care, and irrigation companies struggle with a shortage of well-educated potential employees. Because of that shortage, nearly 100 percent of students graduating from college horticulture and landscape programs have jobs offers. Student Career Days brings students and companies together to build a strong industry for the future. Student Career Days is sponsored at the Platinum level by STIHL, Inc.

    • Do students get scholarships at Student Career Days? 

    The annual event also includes the awarding of tens of thousands of dollars in scholarships presented each year by the PLANET Academic Excellence Foundation (PLANET AEF).

    Going Organic in the Garden and Landscape is Easier Than You Think

     

     

    Corona Tools #landscapechatEveryday new gardeners put spade to ground to begin their lifelong journey with Mother Earth. Myriad questions besiege these newbies.  The hope of bountiful harvests vie with the 'quick fixes' promised by chemical pesticides. How would you advise them?

    Expert gardeners and landscapers employing organic practices as the status quo still may not be aware of new findings and promising research. Just last week I met with some of the  folks Rodale Institute and was surprised when Coach Smallwood told me I could dumpster dive my neighbors’ grass clippings that use chemicals and add them to my compost without introducing chemicals into my garden! There are definitely myths that even the most experienced gardeners apparently don't know about growing organic.    

    The twofold goal of this week's #Landscapechat is: first, to supply the reasons behind why every new gardener should grow organic, and second, to provide interesting news, facts, research and articles to supply organic information for those expert gardeners and landscapers who want the latest trends and information.
