The Biological Sciences Greenhouse at OSU has been fortunate to have multiple bloomings of the Titan Arum, aka, the corpse flower. They have its smaller but also smelly cousin, the Voodoo Lily. From its bruise-colored bloom that resembles a corpse, to its stench of rotting flesh, this tropical flower masks its beauty to attract its pollinators.
An increasing number of people need assistance from food pantries. One local church helps meet those demands.
Many Columbus food pantries offer fresh produce to those in need. The challenge is often keeping a steady supply of the fruits and vegetables. At a South Champion Avenue pantry, crates of fruits and vegetables come courtesy of some special karma.
