Preserving Pollinators

first_imgEight Grady County 4-H’ers and more than 400 students installed a pollinator garden at Shiver Elementary School as part of a yearlong program highlighting the importance of pollinators.Grady County is one of several national sites chosen earlier this year to participate in a grant project sponsored by the National 4-H Council and Corteva, an agriscience organization, aimed at educating youth about the importance of pollinators in their community.The pollinator ambassadors taught fellow Grady County students about the importance of pollinators to the food supply and community ecosystems through a school partnership.The project culminated with the installation of a pollinator garden at Shiver Elementary School in Pelham, Georgia, in collaboration with the Shiver Elementary School FFA program. Corteva played an active part in preparing the site for planting and Quail Forever, a nonprofit conservation organization, provided the seed for planting and the educational program for the field day.Students planted native pollinators in hopes of attracting bees, butterflies, birds, moths, bats, ants and lizards.Deron Rehberg, University of Georgia Cooperative Extension county coordinator and 4-H agent for Grady County, and Lisa Pollock, Grady County Extension 4-H agent, helped facilitate the program.“The pollinator planting site will serve as an example of what families can plant on their own property to attract various pollinators. Planting a pollinator garden doesn’t have to be complicated,” says Rehberg.Georgia 4-H empowers youth to become true leaders by developing necessary life skills, positive relationships and community awareness. As the largest youth leadership organization in the state, 4-H reaches more than 242,000 people annually through UGA Extension offices and 4-H facilities. For more information, visit read more

In the first half of the year, wine exports to Austria doubled

first_imgOn the famous Viennese square Am Hof, 12 Croatian wineries, gathered under the brand, present their wines Vina Croatia – mosaic wines organized by the Wine Association of the Croatian Chamber of Commerce. The beginning of the implementation of the strategy was in 2013 through a clearly stated goal and strength and character of the brand as well as a desire for a clear positioning of Croatian wines on the world wine list.”We wanted to remind the Austrians of the tastes of Croatia now, in the off-season, while their impressions from the summer on our coast are still fresh, to tell them that they can buy the same products they consumed in Croatia at home ”, said Nikola Drmić from the Krauthaker winery, one of the exhibitors in Vienna, where a four-day wine promotion is underway. In addition to this winery, from September 21 to 24 Badel 1862, Degrassi, Dvanajščak, Kozol, Feravino, Iločki podrumi, Kozlović, Kutjevo, PP Orahovica, Zigante, Zlatan otok, PZ Vrbnik, Delikroat and Aura Delikatessen promote their wines and food.The goal of the event is not only to strengthen the image of Croatian wines and wineries, but the overall image of Croatia at this time before and after the season in the most important Croatian emitting tourist markets, among which Austria is especially important to winemakers. “It is known that Croatia is the most popular tourist destination for Austrians. Austrians are in love with the Croatian coast and islands, but Croatia is not only a country that boasts beautiful nature, but also excellent cuisine and first-class wines”, said Tatjana Mrvoš from the Croatian Embassy in Vienna.Photo: Hgk”Austria is a close, significant, but above all demanding market. If our wines are recognized among the Austrians, who are great connoisseurs of wine, it will certainly ensure our profits to the wider market. We hope for a successful continuation of the project. Our vision is to promote Croatian wines in all European capitals”, Said the secretary of the Wine Association of the Croatian Chamber of Commerce Igor Barbarić.”We reluctantly accepted this type of promotion. It is a great thing that we present ourselves together for easier profit in demanding markets. It is interesting to come to tourist emitting markets because consumers recognize you. Some are our regular tourists and have had the opportunity to drink our wines. It is also interesting to watch the reactions of Austrians about the similarities and differences with their wines because they are familiar with our varieties.”, Said the exhibitor Igor Hruška from PP Orahovica.Wine exports to the Austrian market are on the rise. In the first five months, we exported 718 and a half thousand liters of wine, which is more than in the whole of 2016 when we exported a total of 675 thousand liters to Austria. ”These results were achieved thanks to the past two good years of harvest, but also a series of marketing activities in EU markets through the Association of Winemakers of the Croatian Chamber of Commerce under the brand Vina croatia – vina mosaica. In the continuation, we expect further growth and placement of Croatian wines, not only on the Austrian but also on the EU market, thanks to the constant quality of Croatian wines. This event is one in a series of levers to increase the promotion and recognition of Croatian wines”, Said the president of the Croatian Chamber of Commerce Luka Burilović, who came to Vienna to support local winemakers.last_img read more

Why we resuscitated Kwara Sports Festival 15 years after — AbdulRazaq

first_imgRelatedPosts Saraki to Kwara Governor: Call those encroaching my land led by your SA to order FG hails Kwara Governor over social investment programme COVID-19 taught us to be closer to God – ex-NAN Director Kwara State Governor AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq has said he approved the resuscitation of the state annual sports festival as part of his belief in productive engagement of the youths to attain their full potentials. The state is currently engrossed with excitement as contingents from across its 16 local government areas participate in at least 26 games in the seventh Kwara State Sports Festival, which was last held in 2005. AbdulRazaq, who paid an unscheduled visit late on Wednesday to the Kwara State Stadium Complex to watch some of the games, said such event would also help to promote talents and sportsmanship in the populace. “The resuscitation of Kwara State Sports Festival hinges on the need to invest in the youths and sports. Hitherto, the state hired athletes to represent the state in festivals and we need to invest in ourselves and get the home-grown youths to take part in various sports events (nationwide and internationally),” he told reporters shortly after watching a photo finish (volleyball game) between Ilorin West and Offa. AbdulRazaq also said the administration plans to upgrade some facilities in the sports complex in the 2020 fiscal year, especially the indoor hall, to provide the right environment for local talents to thrive. “(There will be) renovation of the sports complex, investments in youth and sports. You will see a face-lift of the Indoor Sports Hall of the state stadium, a new squash court and renovation in all facets,” he said, offering insights into what the sector should expect in the 2020 budget that was passed on Wednesday. “It is a pity that we’ve allowed (sports) infrastructure to decay. But despite that we can see the zeal, commitment of the sportsmen and women as well as the officials. You can see that they want to participate in sports. So, we need to provide the enabling environment to do what they need to do.” AbdulRazaq said Kwara State looks forward to greater showings in the upcoming 20th National Sports Festival in March in Edo State, adding: “In fact, this is the good beginning. We are not going to hire athletes to represent the state. The home-grown talents will represent us. So, we’ll have a 10 year plan. We are not saying that we will be at the top of the medals table in Edo but gradually we will be the best.” The Governor had earlier met with members of the main organising committee of the festival in the indoor hall where he commended them for a good job. He was received by top government officials, sports veterans and entrepreneurs, including the Commissioner for Sports and Youth Development, Joanna Nnazua Kolo; Special Adviser on Sports and Youth Development, Attahiru Ibrahim; Director of Sports, Tunde Kazeem; Serah Adebooa Esan; Olusola Abubakar Sheu; ex-international Hameed Adio; Coach Bola Mogaji; Dr. Steve Olarinoye; Razaq Olorunmako; Ibrahim Bako; and Abimbola Agbeke Olaoye.Tags: Abdulrahman AbdulrazaqKwara Sports FestivalKwara Statelast_img read more
