HCP-MV Partner Spotlight: Mahoning & Trumbull County Land Banks A Decade of Demolitions to Grow a Greener Mahoning Valley A lot has changed over the last 10 years. Common sights in 2011 are artifacts by 2021 standards. Technology is always a reliable place to look for what’s new, different, updated, and upgraded—iPods are no more; much of our data and entertainment floats in a cloud or through a stream rather than burned onto DVDs or flashdrives; and everything is “smarter”—including toothbrushes, hairbrushes, and other “things.” Steel Mill along Mahoning River 1962—Photo donated by Joseph E.

Though our holiday celebrations will look very different this year, one of the essential elements at the center of many holiday traditions will stay the same: food.  At HCP, we always have food on our minds. But, this year especially, it’s been top of mind of many. As we approach the 9 month mark of living through a pandemic, we’ve all heard or read [...]

HCP Partner Spotlight: Sophia Buggs What an amazing time to be alive and working in the valley. Much of my farming, cooking, and wellness consulting have been about connecting folk to the soil, plants, and wellbeing. I’ve always shared my resources off-site at other gardens, kitchens, and businesses. This year plant medicine and land stewardship is the focus. It’s kind of always been the focus of my small urban farm but this time it will be followed through by planting more native species, getting more seeds, trees, and bulbs into the hands of growers and providing onsite social distance [...]
