Everyday Hero – Tiffany Bensen

The Oxford Community Garden Association provides a space for members to come together and garden with others in the community, but with great opportunity comes great responsibility. Up to the challenge is garden manager Tiffany Bensen, who has been with the organization since its conception, first as treasurer before settling into her current post three years ago. Bensen is this week’s Everyday Hero. (October 31, 2014, Page 1A)

Eating green means more than just veggies

GREEN WEEK 2010The idea of going green has been a growing trend in the nation for years but the larger concept, sustainable living, actually focuses on more than just recycling or changing to more efficient lightbulbs.

The City of Oxford and University of Mississippi, in hosting Green Week beginning today through Friday, hope to introduce the community to small steps to begin leading a sustainable life.
