People’s Garden:  “Why Use Rain Barrels? - Helpful Tips”
 
02:52
Rain Barrels collect rainwater runoff from your roof, enabling you to water your vegetables, flowers, shrubs and trees. By using rainwater from your roof, you can keep your lawn greener and your garden lusher in the hot, dry summer months. You also will save money by reducing water usage. Stormwater runoff is rain that falls on the hard, paved surfaces and roofs of our urban regions. When rain falls on a roof, it heats up and carries pollutants into the street and then into stormwater pipes which then discharge the stormwater directly into streams. Rain barrels and other rainwater harvesting methods (rain gardens, native plants, etc) really can help clean up the environment. For more information see: http://www.usda.gov/documents/7-31-09_Garden_Tips_Rain_Barrels.pdf and please visit The People’s Garden website: http://www.usda.gov/wps/portal/usda/usdahome?navid=PEOPLES_GARDEN

Ranger Cattle – Joshua Eilers -  Austin,Texas
 
03:59
USDA programs assist new, beginning and veteran farmers and ranchers like Joshua Eilers of Ranger Cattle in Austin, Texas. As a Sergeant, Eilers served as team leader in the U.S. Army’s elite First Ranger Battalion. Although raised in a rural community outside Austin, Eilers had no background in production agriculture. Fast forward post-military and you’ll now find Eilers managing his herd of full blood Wagyu beef that he markets directly to retail establishments and restaurants in Austin. Many have questioned Eilers’ decision to enter the cattle business. Eilers’ response? “Production agriculture affords me the opportunity to give back to my community in my post-military life.” Eilers fully supports USDA’s efforts to transition veterans into careers with the department or into production agriculture enterprises. “Veterans should take advantage of all that USDA has to offer. USDA services and programs are meant to help you; so let them help you,” said Eilers. To learn more about USDA programs and services visit https://newfarmers.usda.gov/
