6lilafrakastreetfestival,

I fond it interesting that many of our elders don’t “believe” in the concept of Organics.

I stood in front of the chicken section of the meat department in the Carrollton Rouses. An older woman, and what seemed to be her grandson slide in with a basket and she stopped next to me (all in my bubble too!). She scoffed and said “18 dollars for a chicken!?” Before I could even turn my head to look I knew she had to be peering at the organic chicken, the one that is “better” for you. I neglected to give her this spiel because a) I didn’t know her and b) I didn’t want to seem disrespectful. But the truth of the matter is “Organics” are not a myth, they literally are the lasting reminder that we have to tell each other that some of our food is real and some isn’t. Organic (I’ll do my best to recall my whole foods organics training) is assigned to any food that has been grown/ raised…


I’m gonna post this on whatisawayteam.com later if anybody is interested in where their food comes from.

We are ready for the weekend!! Thanks to Professional Sport Shop & #matrixshadlures | #AwayteamFishing trip coming soon! Make sure you sign up at whatisawayteam.com/AwayteamFishing for updates

Next Saturday (September 20th) is your chance to pitch in and help clean up our town! The Lake Ponchartrain Basin Foundation has organized this opportunity so all they need is some willing volunteers. The full event description is below so please read, register and share with your homies, and cohorts!!!

The Lake Pontchartrain Basin Foundation (LPBF) will hold its annual Fall Beach Sweep; a day designated to clean up the Lake Pontchartrain Basin, on Saturday, September 20, 2014 from 9am - 12noon. For the 9th year LPBF is happy to have Toyota as Beach Sweep’s presenting sponsor. This year LPBF’s Beach Sweep celebrates its 25th year. The sweep is held in conjunction with the International Coastal Cleanup sponsored by Ocean Conservancy. Volunteers, partners and sponsors help clean up the areas that drain into Lake Pontchartrain by hitting city streets and rural roadways to clean curbs, ditches and storm drains. As an added activity a limited number of storm drain markers will be placed on drains in Orleans, Jefferson and St. Tammany Parishes. Beach Sweep helps prevent our metro area from flooding and at the same time protect Lake Pontchartrain.   Designated areas for cleanup around the lake at this time include Orleans, Jefferson, St. Bernard, St. Charles, St. John, St. Tammany and Tangipahoa Parishes.

Debris picked up by volunteers is recorded on data cards that catalogue and quantify the types and amounts of trash collected.  LPBF forwards this data to the Ocean Conservancy to be included in its International Coastal Cleanup master database of marine debris.

To say thank you to the volunteers, on Beach Sweep day LPBF’s Beach Sweep partners provide snacks or picnics for registered participants.  These serve as a way to bring together everyone to celebrate the clean sweep of our region. Beach Sweep is an excellent avenue for stewardship, and education/outreach. This year will be a wonderful opportunity to again help take care of the healthy resource our lake has become.

For more information about Beach Sweep or to volunteer as a group or individual, please contact JoAnn at (504) 836-2238 or joannh@saveourlake.org.
