urban gardening - guerrilla gardening

Increasing the awareness for the role of the flora and fauna in our lives is important in an urbanizing world.

That's why I love Guerrilla Gardening: http://www.guerrillagardening.org/



More practical in terms of food production are urban farms: http://www.urbanfarming.org/



And, I think it is worth to really evaluate so-called vertical farms. They are nothing for nostalgists like… Continue

Fertilizer

I mostly live in Holland and here the following is possibly even more relevant than elsewhere:



Climate change is only one part of the story. Inorganic fertilizer is the other part. Most of the current world agricultural production relies on it and the productivity gains that have been realized through its use, are unprecedented. (I am aware, that in many areas of the world, another way would have been possible, but it is not a way much travelled.) Not being able to use inorganic… Continue

Hero and the collaborative

My hero is a group. A small group of dedicated, clever minds as they can be found all over Africa. They are themselves surprised to find their shared desires, ideas and ambitions. And they hotly debate their differences. Then they act. Check out the futureLAB video to see one such group in action. Some of my heroes in action.

Fourth of July on the Lake

This past weekend was the annual celebration at the lake house in Connecticut. It is amazing that the lake is still so clear and beautiful after all these years. The watershed association has done a wonderful job protecting these waters from the damaging effects of development.The wood grill was finally ready to cook on, so we didn't miss the propane tank fueled grill anymore. The food actually tasted fresher than in the past and was easy to keep fueled.Dad was very proud of the solar hybrid…See More

Stinging Nettle

In this blog post I will focus on a plant that is abundant in our nature, and which is immensely nutritious. It's of course the Stinging Nettle. Let's start with the chemical constituents of this plant:37 % Non-Nitrogen-Extracts19 - 29 % Ash9 - 21 % Fiber4 % Fat22 % ProteinOnce the leaves are drid, their protein content can reach an astounding 40 %, which is much higher than beef, which even under the best of circ***tances can never exceed 31 % protein. In addition the Stinging Nettle consists…See More

Future

FutureToday is 2020/1/1. It is just like yesterday. The war is still continuing. It has started since 2010. In 2010, that year was a horrible year. Almost every energy ran out. Every country’s governments were crushed down at the same time. There were riots everywhere. All of the big company’s bosses were killed xdeadx in the riots. Troops fought each other everywhere. Food was bought up xawayx at once. There were no more food supplies in any shops. The economy was all crushed down. All the…See More

public servants

The exchange works directly for state and public workers and servants. It gives them credit in exchange for the amount of public work they contribute to the community. The more constructive they are based off a base rate the more credit they recieve.
