Open forum: “Transnational Strategies for Sustainability in Central America”

Antioch College will hold an open forum on “Transnational Strategies for Sustainability in Central America—on Tuesday, September 18, 2012 at 7:00 p.m. in McGregor Hall, room #113.

The discussion will explore the challenge of helping farming families in Central America preserve their tropical forests by attaining the training and tools to overcome poverty through sustainable means.

Our featured interlocutor will be Returned Peace Corps Volunteer Florence Reed, the founder and president of Sustainable Harvest International (SHI). In collaboration with independent affiliates in Honduras, Nicaragua, Panama, and Belize, SHI responds to the tropical deforestation crisis by providing farmers with sustainable alternatives to slash-and-burn agriculture.

Florence Reed founded SHI in 1997 after serving as a Peace Corps volunteer, during which time she witnessed the devastation that slash-and-burn farming inflicts on families, communities, and the planet. SHI’s mission is to provide farming families in Central America with the training and tools to preserve our planet’s tropical forests while overcoming poverty. Since its inception, SHI has converted 14,000 acres of degraded land to sustainable farms and has planted 3.1 million trees. At the same time, the organization has helped 1,500 families become self-sufficient stewards of the environment who can train more than 10,000 additional families across Honduras, Panama, Belize, and Nicaragua. Ms. Reed’s years of dedication to initiatives in Central America recently earned her the 2012 Sargent Shriver Award for Distinguished Humanitarian Service from the National Peace Corps Association (NPCA).

This is an opportunity for students and community members to share ideas on how colleges and community organizations can help strengthen cross-border initiatives in order to mobilize support for sustainability projects.

The event is open to the public. Children are welcome.

Opening reception for artist Sheilah Wilson

The opening reception for photographer, videographer, and performance artist Sheilah Wilson will be held in the Herndon Gallery in South Hall on Thursday, August 30. The exhibition is titled If Becoming This and will run through November 16. The exhibition will include both photography and video. The reception will be held from 7 to 9 p.m. with an artist’s presentation at 7:30 p.m. “My work is consistently drawn to the romantic and absurd ideal of the body acting as a translation machine of experience and story,—Wilson said. “I believe in the potential of the personal voice, and the body itself, to act as diversionary forces. I use photography, video, and text as performative and documentary tools for my various attempts to pick through the seams of narrative and image.” Wilson is an assistant professor of photography and new media at Denison College in Granville, Ohio. Wilson has been the recipient of numerous awards in the U.S. and Canada, and shows her work both nationally and internationally. Visit her website at
