Bowery Flowers — The Green Spark Behind NYC's 1980s Bicycle Revival - Streetsblog New York
TA threw in with the messengers and led from behind.
Carl died in June, in his house outside the somewhat isolated New Hampshire town of Danbury where he moved a decade or so ago, after finally accepting his landlord’s buy-out. This Saturday evening, Carl’s pals Bill DiPaola, George Bliss, Chris Flash, Pogo (Bill Weinberg) and I are holding a memorial celebration on the Lower East Side. Info here. Everyone is invited.
As you can imagine, the run-up to the memorial has me pondering Carl and the past, with amazement and melancholy.
A skilled photographer and compulsive documentarian, Carl was, as the saying goes, more comfortable behind the lens than in front of it. That was also true of his organizing. In the mid-eighties he saw that TA, where he’d been volunteering, was sputtering and due for a makeover … and pushed me for frontman, insisting I had straight cred he lacked. Plus, Carl had more going on than just reclaiming streets from cars: there was composting, recycling, utility bikes, community gardens, feminism, anti-apartheid divestment, veganism, interspecies-ism and hemp, for starters.
All this while carrying the flame of his hipster-scholar grandfather, the jazz impresario and historian Rudi Blesh, who died in 1985 after years in Carl’s care. (My first time in that Fourth Street apartment, seeing cabinets bulging with Rudi’s ragtime 78’s, I blurted out an expression I’d heard on college radio: “Moldy Fig, eh?” Carl didn’t miss a beat: “My grandfather coined the phrase.”)
“I was recruited into TA,” I later recounted in my Bicycle Uprising series, “by Carl Hultberg, a Green activist with one foot in utopian movements and the other in TA.” Visionary currents drawn from Gandhi and King and Lennon and Coltrane kept Carl buoyant as he grounded himself in the grit of birthing an ecological city: turning an Allen wrench at a TA bike-repair clinic, balancing a front-end-loader utility trike on a recycling run, sorting bottles and cans at his Village Green depot next to the West Fourth Street basketball courts.
Carl was especially intent on fending off the Mayor Koch-era scapegoating of cyclists for the city’s traffic ills. That’s how we met — his NY Greens postcard ... Oct 26, 2018
Dartmouth's stinky 'corpse flower' is set to bloom again
Kim DeLong, manager of the Life Sciences Greenhouse at Dartmouth.
Morphy was grown from seed in 2003 by a private grower in New Hampshire and was acquired by Dartmouth in 2007. Each year, a corpse flower sends up either a leaf or a flower; each leaf lives for almost a year, whereas, a flower lives less than a week. Morphy has bloomed on two other occasions: in July 2011 and September 2016. It only had one leaf in between the two blooms, which stayed open for about 13 months and reached a height of 10 feet, nearly touching the greenhouse ceiling. During that time, the leaf was busy photosynthesizing and storing energy, as the plant must store energy to send up a flower. Once the leaf died in June, the Greenhouse repotted Morphy's corm or swollen underground tuber, which had an estimated weight of 80 to 90 pounds and took three people to lift. More information about the life cycle of the titan arum<http://my.chicagobotanic.org/life-cycle-of-the-titan-arum/> can be found in a diagram by the Chicago Botanic Garden.
The Life Sciences Greenhouse at Dartmouth, which opened in 2011, is home to an extensive and varied plant collection. It includes the Brout Orchid Collection, which houses about a thousand orchids of many species and hybrids in two rooms. There are three other rooms open to the public: a tropical room, a sub-tropical room, and a xeric room housing cacti and succulents. The greenhouse is open to the public year-round and will have extended hours for viewing. The greenhouse is open Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m., yet, visitors are encouraged to visit Morphy after 2 p.m., as parking options may be better later in the day. The extended greenhouse hours will be announced soon once Morphy begins to bloom.

The Outside Story: Mountain Laurel Is Special, In Bloom or Not
In my experience, they like the cultivars best."Wood carvers also appreciate the plant. It is the favored wood of Dan Dustin, a New Hampshire spoon carver. He often goes out with a pack basket in search of a "spoony" laurel - an old one with branches as thick as his arm. Mountain laurel also has the name spoonwood, and legend has it that Native Americans carved it for this purpose."It's lovely carving wood," Dustin says. "It's very stable, meaning it doesn't like to crack as much as some other woods. That makes for easier carving, because it can be carved green. It's white in color, strong and light and without any taste or perfume." He estimates that he's carved 20,000 spoons out of mountain laurel, and plenty from the wood of its relative, blueberry. Mountain laurel is lovely wherever you find it, but some of the larger stands are worth a planned visit. Timing of the bloom is affected by elevation and latitude, as well as spring temperatures: an unusually warm, sunny spring moves the flowering season earlier by one to two weeks. There are very large specimens at The Fells, also known as the Hay estate, on the banks of Lake Sunapee. New Hampshire's Russell-Abbott State Forest, Pisgah State Park, and Wontastaket State Forest have thick stands, as does Vermont's Black Mountain Natural Area. Maine's largest stand is in the Bijhouwer Forest in Phippsburg. Spectacular collections are found at Arnold Arboretum in Jamaica Plain, Mass.Laurie D. Morrissey is a writer in Hopkinton, N.H.
