Last night the topic at the Pensacola Organic Gardeners Club was tomatoes: what kind to plant, when to plant, and how.

The gulf coast has several challenges facing would-be tomato growers including a climate that gets hot quickly and stays hot leading to a short growing season, a receptive environment to molds, fungi, and other enemies of tomatoes, sandy soil, and wet humid weather which makes it more difficult for the tomatoes to pollinate.

The Pensacola Museum of Art has teamed up with “Our Voices Are Many” to bring the journey along the underground railroad to life through Color In Freedom, on display at the museum through April 11.

 

 

  If you throw away your pennies you may want to consider this: the one cent local option sales tax, on the ballot to be renewed this election cycle, adds up to hundreds of millions of dollars over ten years.

 

The vote is to approve a ten year expansion of the one cent LOST  tax which is currently slated through 2017. That one penny adds up to pay for everything from drainage and transportation infrastructure to animal welfare and community centers.

Science Friday is collaborating with science museums to encourage listeners to become doers by making and tinkering. The Pensacola MESS Hall- that stands for Math, Engineering, Science, and Stuff- embraces the idea of making and tinkering so I went there to find out more. Megan Pratt is the founder and director of the Pensacola MESS Hall.

Last Friday local entrepreneurs Quint and Rishy Studer announced a new initiative: The Studer Institute. Brian Hooper, the Institute’s director sat down and spoke with WUWF’s Lindsay Myers about the purpose and direction of the Institute.

Hooper described the desire behind the Institute by saying, "We hope to educate the community in a compelling and interesting way, whatever it is that we find. We want to look at our community with a sober eye, we want to identify the key issues facing it and we want to try to suggest solutions."

So Pensacon 2014 is behind us with the upper limits of organizers' predictions being reached, the Pensacola Bay Center floor reaching capacity several times Saturday, and downtown nightlife establishments reporting a busy weekend.

Later this week Visit Pensacola, who collected data during the convention, will have hard numbers to put on this impact but as the memories of Pensacon start to fade I chatted with Manda Manning, part of the Pensacon team, about the challenges and successes of the weekend and what we can look forward to next year.
