Hello Friends in Connected Learning,

Do you work with, live with, and/or mentor youth 13-18? If so, sign up for http://letters2president.org/ to get resources and opportunities about teaching the election and support youth participation around topics of interest to them. You will also be first in line to learn about the youth publishing site when it opens for submissions in late July.

Sign up today!

2015 MC #1 Unmake Intros  - 
 
Finally thought of a #donowobject  -- a "yard butler" for turning compost. ... Among my favorite new tools, this yard butler's job is to get into the deep stuck spaces of my compost and in one simple movement bring it back up to the top, surprising but keeping alive all the happy worms that have made their temporary home there (previous tools such as shovels and pitchforks tend to kill/dismember many worms I'm afraid). 

I think it represents my goals of being more gentle with things overall while still always trying to probe to get to what's really hiding underneath and provide it necessary air.

What a great project! I just shared it with my school district's admin team, in hopes they will get word out to our middle/high school.
