Food shortage? In Cape Town? What did you say?

This was my response upon reading the second mission given to us by Alchemy. For as long as I can remember (and for me, that's a lot) there's never been talk of a food shortage. Sure, we've had severe water restrictions, so much so that we had to cut short our two-minute showers, but not a food shortage...

That is, until I realised that the two, at least here, are inextricably linked. As IOL.com…

NEXTSTEP: Moving the "Barefoot College" around the world

My NEXTSTEP initiative is based on Reid Falconer's blog post on Bunker Roy - the man who started the Barefoot College. This has made a substantial difference to many people's lives in India, and there's nothing stopping a person from beginning an initiative of the same type anywhere else in the world.

South Africa, both mine and Reid's home country, is a place of great turmoil. While the political situation is somewhat under control, AIDS and HIV are rampant, called…

The Sustainability Institute - my ACT1, LEARN1 and IMAGINE1, all-in-1!

Having already contacted Eve Annecke, the co-founder of the Sustainability Institute, I realised that I should probably write an article on this topic, seeing as it relates to every blog I've written so far - I want to do something like the Lynedoch EcoVillage, and I'd also love to study Sustainability - how lucky am I that this organisation is but half-an-hour away! Here's my article...Enjoy. This is something that really fascinates me, and hopefully will fascinate some of you too - this is… Continue

Conquering our fear

I've just read a blog, a brilliant one, by Kimberlynne Fox of the USA. It struck a chord with me, because everyone has a fear that they have to overcome. Hers is one of social contact, and I can't blame her - it's scary, striking up conversation with someone you don't know!

Conquering my fears, however, required quite a different situation. It was on the Epic, a sixteen-day camp in the nearby Cederberg, a nature reserve some two hours from Cape Town (by car) that contains…

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**stances can never exceed 31 % protein. In addition the Stinging Nettle consists…See More

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.
