When this happens, it’s usually because the owner only shared it with a small group of people, changed who can see it or it’s been deleted.

Hello world!

Welcome to WordPress. This is your first post. Edit or delete it, then start writing!


A Time for Science and GO Science have enjoyed workinbg with Jackie Ponder and the Unnatural Resources Fair. During February (2017), GO Science displayed an exhibit called "Upcycle: Use It or Lose It". This exhibit was greatly enhanced by winning entries from the Unnatural Resources Fair. We also hosted an Open House to house the winners of the Fair tant was very well attended. Jackie Ponder has hosted several programs at GO Science as well as at "A Time for Science" to help the public learn how to reuse items that otherwise would have been thrown away. We are very grateful for this wonderful resource in the Greenville community. We look forward to our future events!

Thank you for contacting me. I visited your website, and I love your concept/term of 'Unnatural Resources'! I think it does have a lot of more life, curiosity, and mystery to it than 'Solid Waste', which does sound dead and inert. I think you have truly captured the idea of resources moving and cycling through. Keep up the good fight!
