Farmers with the Lansing Roots program. The program, run by the Greater Lansing Food Bank, helps aspiring farmers with limited means turn their passion for gardening into a business.
Wednesday on CS means it’s time for Neighbors in Action, when we feature people and organizations working to make Greater Lansing a better place. Today, we learn about Lansing Roots, a business incubator for aspiring farmers with limited means. To learn more about the program, Current State talks to Alex Bryan, from the Greater Lansing Food Bank, the organization behind the program. Also joining us is Mohammed Khogali [koh-GALL-ee], a Lansing resident and farmer with Lansing Roots. Current State is looking for more nominations for our Neighbors In Action feature. Please help us out and e-mail us your suggestions to firstname.lastname@example.org. Put ‘Neighbors in Action’ in the subject line. Or tweet us @KARCurrentState. Tell us a little about why you think they should be featured for the great work they do.
It’s Wednesday, which means it’s time for Neighbors in Action, when we feature people and organizations working to make mid-Michigan a better place. It’s estimated that there are more than two-million caregivers in Michigan. Some are health care professionals, but many others provide care for their family members at home. Even with the proper training, caregiving is stressful work, both physically and emotionally.
It’s Wednesday and time for our Neighbors in Action segment, where we feature people and organizations working to make our community a better place. Today we feature Michigan’s AmeriCorps program. The nationwide volunteer program is celebrating its 20th anniversary this week.
