C66 Several Varieties of Technical Assistance
Invalid Image LinkSold

Offering assistance with home technology troubles. I'm a software developer by trade and pretty good with consumer electronics like computers, networking, printers, TV audio/video, Android cell phones, etc. For example a couple things I see a lot of people not doing which they should is using a password manager for online accounts for security purposes and backing up their personal data -- photos, videos and documents.

This offer is for up to four hours of troubleshooting / assistance. I'll come over on a weekend or after 5:00 pm on a weekday. I'll sanitize my hands before coming in and wear a mask the whole time.

First we'll plan a consultation phone call so I can determine the nature of the work and we'll set a date and time that is mutually convenient.

C65 Become a BFF! A Bee Friendly Farmer in Our Own Backyards and Gardens!
Invalid Image LinkSold

Have a fun and BEEautiful time learning about cuckoos, tigers, fuzzy bellied, metallic greens, and more! These are just a few of the fascinating 500+ NATIVE bees in Ohio that are not honeybees! Most of our native bees are solitary and live in the ground or in tiny cavities and are 90 percent more effective pollinators than our non-native honeybees.

In this presentation, you will learn how to identify our native bees as many are very tiny and extremely fast moving, or can be confused with wasps or flies, and find out how we can easily attract and support these essential pollinators in our urban gardens and landscapes. We will cover:

- Why native bees are important
- How to identify a bee vs other insects, flies, and wasps
- Differences between social bees and solitary bees
- Discover which ones are the ground nesting and cavity nesting bees
- Four things we can do to support and attract native bees to our gardens

This will be an onsite gathering with Covid masks and distance at the Sunny Glen Garden, an urban lawn turned organic permaculture edible food forest and wildlife habitat that supports people and the planet! or a zoom presentation, depending on the COVID situation.

One of my favorite activities is to piece images together as a collage. It is a spiritual practice that brings insight and peace. When you win this item, I will reach out to you to learn more about you and ask you to email or mail me 2-4 images -- photos of your family, your home, favorite places or objects, magazine clippings, or whatever you choose. A few weeks later I'll mail you a visual representation of what I've learned. Here are some examples:
