  • Reflection Question
    Food Learn More about Silvopasture
    Had you heard of the term "silvopasture" before now? After learning more about it, what do you think is the biggest advantage of silvopasture?

    Kaia Rouse 4/23/2019 7:30 AM
    I have not heard of silvopasture before this event but I think the biggest advantage of silvopasture is it balances the earth by having lots of plants and animals together instead of just one crop or one kind of livestock

    What does your vision of a sustainable community look like? What would need to be changed in order for such vision to become reality?

    Moving the grid from macro to midi and micro grids - if we an use solar energy during the May-September timeframe, we can begin to create local, clean energy that can be consume/produced/stored locally, in our homes and solar projects.

    Electricity Generation Learn More about Wave and Tidal Energy
    What did you learn about wave and tidal energy? Were you surprised by the information you found?

    Kaia Rouse 4/18/2019 9:09 AM
    well i learned wave energy can be on top of the water and title can be underneath. also i learned that wave energy is like a base that has blades like a fan except the blades move p and down when ever a wave comes by. i was surprised by the ways these things worked and created energy

    Why is taking action on climate change important to you? Why do you care?

    Kaia Rouse 4/14/2019 8:10 AM
    Climate change is an important topic because it can cause extreme weather events and sea levels to rise. I care because i live on this planet and humans caused climate change and now we have to fix it.
