OSI Visits the Farmer's Market at Decker Farm

Spring is here again, and that means a plethora of locally-grown foods are available at local farms and farmers' markets. Eating fresh, seasonal, locally-grown food is not only healthy, it's also a pleasure for many who call themselves locavores (people who eat locally-grown food), and it also helps keep money invested in our communities.

OSI Cleans Up South Beach

Occupy Staten Island members Seth and Jen, along with their friend Kurt, spent a Saturday morning volunteering with New York Cares and the New York City Parks Department to do a cleanup at South Beach on Staten Island, in preparation for the Memorial Day weekend opening of the beaches for swimming. They removed trash along the boardwalk and under the boardwalk. Some of the trash included drinking straws and assorted litter; other trash included rocks and pieces of cement, as well as a 10-foot steel pole, which was the catch of the day. "I will never bring a straw to the beach ever again.

Staten Islanders Discuss "Community Democracy"

A dozen or so islanders got out of the rain on Sunday, April 22 to meet in the hall of St. Mary's Church (Castleton & Forest.) The banner in the room said simply "COMMUNITY DEMOCRACY," and that was what was discussed, in a very lively way, for nearly three hours - well over the advertised time.
