Green Visions: people as native plants, climate change, and "radical kindness"

Kate Likes to Draw/Facebook

Kate Young is a huge fan of native plants.  And people.  And turning people into native plants - or native plants into people - through her art.

The climate and social justice advocate is a member of the Loaves and Fishes community, and she's found the pandemic to be an exceptionally productive time, artistically speaking.

She's returned to drawing after a 25 year hiatus and is using her art, not only in service to the guests at Loaves and Fishes, but to explore climate change as part of the Culture x Climate: Duluth project.  The project highlights local artists, poets, photographers and others exploring environmental issues and climate change through their work.

You can find more information about various activities surrounding Culture x Climate: Duluth at the blog, here.

The Duluth/365 climate initiative will host a Facebook event and discussion on November 17th, at 8pm.

And you can connect with Kate Young, especially if you're interested in donating art supplies to the guests at Loaves and Fishes: Kate Likes to Draw on Facebook.

Lisa Johnson started her broadcast career anchoring the television news at her high school and spinning country music at KWWK/KOLM Radio in Rochester, Minnesota. She was a reporter and news anchor at KTHI in Fargo, ND (not to mention the host of a children's program called "Lisa's Lane") and a radio reporter and anchor in Moorhead, Bismarck, Wahpeton and Fergus Falls.Since 1991, she has hosted Northland Morning on KUMD. One of the best parts of her job includes "paying it forward" by mentoring upcoming journalists and broadcasters on the student news team that helps produce Northland Morning. She also loves introducing the different people she meets in her job to one another, helping to forge new "community connections" and partnerships.Lisa has amassed a book collection weighing over two tons, and she enjoys reading, photography, volunteering with Animal Allies Humane Society and fantasizing about farmland. She goes to bed at 8pm, long before her daughter, two cats, or three dogs.
