Saturday Tweets: Bees, Fireflies and Food Waste

#longlivetheswarm https://t.co/ecdgLZTF9S pic.twitter.com/Kzj5577b0u — Natural BK Trust (@NaturalBeeTrust) June 15, 2018 I’m watching hundreds of fireflies in my small yard filled with plants, no chemicals used. Over my next door neighbor’s fence, not a single firefly. They spray weekly for mosquitoes. Here’s how to help fireflies https://t.co/j3Vfurc11Z — Thomas Rainer (@ThomasRainerDC) June 13, 2018 “The […]

How to Put Together a Small Scale Solar System

How can you use solar panels to power a few lights, run a fountain or charge some tools? It seems like a simple question, and yet I can’t tell you how many books/magazines/websites I’ve combed through in search of a basic tutorial for anything less than wiring up a whole house. Now I know how […]

Anima: Animals, Faith, Compassion

The issues surrounding our food, whether we grow or raise it ourselves or buy it at the supermarket, can send you into a deep ethical nettle patch. How do we feed a growing population and not destroy the planet? How does our food impact our health? How do we keep the costs of food reasonable? […]

Saturday Linkages: Beetle Party, Floating Homes and Cilantro

Beetle party on this wild Rosa species. Mating and getting covered in pollen in the process! Plant-insect interactions are so cool.#beetles #rosa #iamabotanist #mating #NaturePhotography #naturelovers pic.twitter.com/qyCoOB9MNw — Dr. Cassandra Quave (@QuaveEthnobot) June 7, 2018 As Lyme goes global, a new book sees it as ‘first epidemic of climate change’. I check myself at least […]

Luddite’s Moonshot: Dealing With Leafy Green Pests

I opted for none of the above this year because it is so demoralizing.” Then he linked to the Wikipedia article for the banana slug. While we have no banana […]

Thanks! I was interested in your comment regarding bringing 4H to city kids. I have been thinking about doing something similar to that where inner city kids could come to the farm as part of a summer program. They could be part of the planting, harvesting and selling of veggies (learning life skills) in addition to feeding and caring for the animals. I have a friend who works with kids in East L.A. as part of an after school program and we are trying to incorporate the concept into a package that works here in MA. Big Plans!...maybe too big. And yes, hippie attire is mandatory

Just purchased your book along with Scott Kellogg's "Toolbox for Sustainable City Living." As a resident of Baltimore City, they're right down my alley! Can't wait to read.
