Cooperative Garden Promotes Food Self-Determination for Santa Ana - VoiceofOC
The CRECE Cooperative Garden has been supported by the Santa Ana Building Healthy Communities initiative, which was launched nine years ago with a major grant from the California Endowment. The goal of Santa Ana Building Healthy Communities is to improve the health and overall quality of life of low-income residents. Making tasty and fresh food available is one important piece.
When it’s growing season, CRECE is one-third of an acre of abundance: cucumbers, guava, lettuce, corn (five kinds), avocado, pomegranate, raspberries, peppers (10 kinds) and much more.
“This farm has grown over 100 different crops,” says Evelyn Estrada, who became a volunteer after returning from the Peace Corps in the Philippines. “It’s teaching us so many lessons.”
JULIE LEOPO, Voice of OCEvelyn Estrada, 32, fixes the vines growing along the garden work station at the CRECE Cooperative Garden in Santa Ana.
CRECE stands for Community in Resistance for Ecological and Cultural Empowerment. You might wonder, how is a garden an act of resistance? Clara Leopo, a senior at UC Irvine explains.
“Because I feel like a lot of grocery stores are expensive and not accessible to families here,” says Leopo, who grew up in Santa Ana. “And a lot of the (grocery) fruits and vegetables have harsh chemicals and are produced by harsh labor that’s been exploited. When I see a fruit here, I get really happy because it’s grown by the people and for the people.”
CRECE is off Santiago Street tucked behind the First Congregational Church of Santa Ana, which owns the land; it has been a community garden for many years, most recently known as the Santa Ana People’s Garden, when it was divided into small plots, each tended by a different family. Its wall-size mural proclaiming that name is still there.

Arlene's Flowers v. Washington - Cato Institute
Justice Clarence Thomas wrote a concurrence offering some guidance, but post-Masterpiece state and circuit courts have diverged.
As it has in previous stages of this litigation, Cato has filed an amicus brief supporting Arlene’s Flowers—again joined by Reason Foundation and Individual Rights Foundation—urging the Supreme Court to take up the case and settle these issues and ambiguities after all. Cato is the only organization in the country to have filed briefs in support of both Jim Obergefell (lead plaintiff in the Supreme Court’s same-sex marriage case) and Jack Phillips (owner of Masterpiece Cakeshop). It shouldn’t be so hard to see the difference between government action and individual conscience, to have official equality while letting a thousand flowers bloom.

Publisher Ralph A. Martinelli dies at 57 - Westfair Online
Yonkers Mayor Angelo Martinelli, who served six terms from 1974 to 1987. Ralph A. Martinelli was a graduate of Iona Prep School and majored in communications at Regis College in Denver.
In a 2012 column appearing in Hudson Valley magazine, Martinelli reminisced about his father having started that publication in 1972. He said he had fond memories of working at the family’s printing plant in Yonkers, Gazette Press, which had been in operation since the late 1940s. He recalled that his father would take him and his brothers to the printing plant on School Street near Getty Square every Saturday where they would do everything from sweeping the floors to working on print jobs. He said that he eventually worked his way up to the bindery department.
Even after graduating from college, he still helped out at the printing plant. He said he worked at a few restaurants and eventually got a real estate license, but was drawn back to Hudson Valley magazine, becoming involved with circulation and eventually becoming its advertising manager.
His brother Robert F. Martinelli is CEO and president of Today Media, while his brother Richard J. Martinelli is the company’s secretary and treasurer.
Westchester County Executive George Latimer said, “Martinelli grew up in Westchester’s publishing business. He took a company, started by his father, and grew it into what it is today along with his two brothers. The county certainly pauses when Westchester magazine hits the mailboxes, and the events he started in Westchester are a... Oct 10, 2019
Invasion: Protectors of Prescott's watersheds wary of non-native plants - The Daily Courier
It really degrades diversity in the ecosystem.”
A recently-identified invader of the Watson Woods Riparian Preserve is periwinkle, or Vinca major. The non-native plant was first observed in the woods surrounding Watson Lake in 2016. It has since cropped up in thick patches.
It’s unclear how the plant was introduced into Watson Woods, but Byrd has his suspicions.
“It probably started out in somebody’s yard and made its way here somehow,” he said.
Unlike teasel, which is a relatively unattractive plant covered in sharp thorns, Vinca is a low-growing plant with soft features and colorful flowers, so it’s sometimes seen as a desirable landscape plant around homes and businesses.
However, once Vinca establishes itself in wild habitats, it can cause serious ecological issues, Byrd said. The plant tends to form a dense cover that prevents growth and establishment of other plant species, thereby lowering species diversity and disrupting native plant communities.
Combatting the spread of plants like Vinca into wild habitats is a difficult task. One tactic Byrd believes is effective is education.
“We can educate people about why these plants are kind of a mess for natural ecosystems, and maybe folks would pull them out of their yards,” he said.
“Our yards aren’t natural areas, but they can be seed sources that get out into natural areas.”
As with many organizations and government entities that work to protect the wildlands, Prescott Creeks maintains a short list of noxious weeds it is actively working to control the growth of in Watson Woods. On that list is the following:
Spotted knapweed, common teasel, scotch thistle, salt cedar/tamarisk, Siberian elm, Dalmatian toadflax, periwinkle, Russian knapweed and Russian olive.
John Mangimeli has been volunteering with Prescott Creeks to help manage such weeds in local wild habitats for about 10 years.
He spends hours every week manually pulling these plants out of the ground along local watersheds.
“It’s important to restore this environment back to its original state and maintain a healthy environment,” Mangimeli said. “Wherever exotic plants are covering it, the native plants can’t grow there and the animals that depend on those native plants can’t live there. They’re taking over our wildlands. We’re going to be a very impoverished environment if we... Oct 10, 2019
