TedTalk: In clear, nontechnical language, string theorist Brian Greene explains how our understanding of the universe has evolved from Einstein's notions of gravity and space-time to superstring theory, where minuscule strands of energy vibrating in 11 dimensions create every particle and force in the universe...

A food forest (or forest garden) is an ancient agricultural concept that mimics nature in all its glory.  We’re not talking a vegetable garden here.  Instead, a food forest is a largely self-maintaining whole and inclusive, interdependent and highly productive system of multi-storied trees, shrubs, grasses, flowers, pollinators, soil, water and you...

 

Editor’s Note: Edible forest gardening is easier over the long run than growing annual crops, and can provide more total output or food per acre (though yields of any one crop will be less than food grown in monocultures.)  Here is the first of three parts describing the benefits of food forests and how to make them.

While a nip is sure to warm you up on a cold winter’s day (or cool you down when mixed with ice, simple syrup, and a squeeze of lemon) I didn’t think this delightful spirit was capable of much more.
