Speaker’s Task Force on Adoption holds first public hearing at UW-Green Bay

A bipartisan group of state representatives hopes to learn more about the barriers that make child adoption challenging in Wisconsin. The committee’s first public hearing was held Tuesday, July 2, 2019 at UW-Green Bay. UW-Green Bay faculty provided feedback.

“Children need their parents. The question is how do we protect a child who may think developmentally that’s my mom even if mom is doing something abusive? They’re not necessarily going to protect themselves, and that becomes our job,” said Joan Groessl, Chair of UW-Green Bay’s Social Work program.

This week’s veggie sale, Red Russian Kale, and more…

Thank you to all who have been supporting the  Green Bay Campus hoop house and outdoor gardens. The produce is locally grown, picked the morning of, pesticide free, and all proceeds go directly towards supporting UW-Green Bay community gardens!  Here’s what is available this week:

Mixed Greens-$4/bag
Enjoy this lovely mix of organic salad greens that have a dynamic range of leaf shapes and colors.The flavors are equally diverse: spicy to mild to slightly sweet. This mix includes red mustard, green mustard, arugula, Chinese cabbage, pac choi, and tatsoi. Varieties are subject to change depending upon availability.

Red Russian Kale- $4/bag
Add some variety to your greens life with this kale. Stems are purple; leaves are flat, toothed, and dark green with purple veins. This plants also has leaves that are more tender compared to other kales. Great for salads and light cooking!

Beets-$3/bundle
Enjoy a bundle of these beautiful deep reddish/purple beets. These beets are perfect pickled, fresh, cooked, or in borscht. Enjoy the health benefits of fiber, folate, manganese, potassium, iron, and vitamin C. Beetroots and beetroot juice have been associated with numerous health benefits, such as, improved blood flow and lower blood pressure over a period of time.

Rainbow Swiss Chard-$3/bag
Add some variety to your greens selection with Rainbow Swiss Chard. The glossy dark green leaves have crisp multicolored stalks. This fun Swiss chard is sure to add the pop of color your dishes need with its range of orange, yellow, pink, and red stalks. Swiss chard leaves can be eaten raw or cooked but are less bitter when cooked.

Dark Opal Basil Microgreen-$5/bag
Adds robust, sweet-and-spicy flavor and visual interest to summer cocktails. Makes a colorful dessert garnish with its bold purple color and true basil flavor. Great as a basil leaf replacer. I personally love to make a homemade basil hummus to add to sandwiches and salads.

Cinnamon Basil Microgreen-$5/bag
Enjoy the light sweet flavor of cinnamon that comes through on this rich Microgreen. Switch up your normal pesto recipe by adding this for a fun, fresh twist. It would also be interesting to try with deserts, oatmeals, or anything that you usually put cinnamon on. This Microgreen is the perfect balance of flavor without being overpowering.

Chamomile Flowers-$2/bundle
Looking for a way to relax on a breezy summer night? Look no further! Make your very own chamomile tea with these flower bundles. This is a great option for those of you who are looking to avoid the chemicals and additives that most store bought teas steep into your water. We will have the flowers bundles ready for you. All you have to do is pop the tops off, dry them for a few days, and that’s it! You’re ready to brew some fresh and organic chamomile tea.

Borage Leaves/Flowers-$3/bag
With a taste comparable to that of cucumber, borage has various culinary applications. The leaves can of course be used as a salad green and the flowers as edible decorations, but to stop there would be an insult to the wide variety of uses for borage. This herb can be used in soups, salads, borage-lemonade, strawberry-borage cocktails, preserves, borage jelly, various sauces, cooked as a stand-alone vegetable, or used in desserts in the form of fresh or candied flowers, to name a few. I like to use the leaves for tea and dry them in a similar way to the chamomile flowers. Please specify if you would like the leaves or the flowers of the plant.

Fresh Chives-$2/bag
Get a large bag of these chives which are a wonderful addition to many of your staple dishes. Chives are rich source of vitamin K, C, and folic acid. They are also high in minerals such as manganese, magnesium and iron. If you are worried about having too many you can always freeze some for a later date!
