Every April 22nd, when Earth Day rolls around once again, we see the public renew its interest in protecting the environment and finding practical solutions for sustainability. There are benefit concerts, clean-up days, and eco-rallies; all dedicated to spreading the word on ways everyone can help preserve our planet's natural resources. However, one way we can all help is right there in front of us, every day. It's the food we choose to eat, and how we choose to eat it...

Dervaes Gardens sits practically on top of a Pasadena, California, freeway and is only blocks away from the famous Rose Bowl. Outside are all the trappings of twenty-first-century life: automobiles, satellite dishes, supermarkets, car washes, and stores carrying produce brought thousands of miles for the convenience of their customers. But inside, Jules Dervaes and his children have created what they call an Urban Homestead.

 

Editor’s Note: The Dervaes family in Pasadena, California has converted 1/10 of an acre of urban land from concrete slab to gardens, and grows up to three tons of produce per year right there! Imagine what kind of food abundance and vitality would be available to us and our neighbors if those of us with access to land and water produced food where we live.

Welcome to Paris, where an entire building is pulsing with lush green life and beauty.

Patrick Blanc is a groundbreaking botanist and designer that creates magical gardens out of building exteriors in urban areas.

Editor's Note from Michelle Gregg: Just imagine! The future could be cities filled with lush green life and colorful beauty, rather than just concrete jungles that sap our health. Flora growing up city building walls would provide a partial solution to air pollution..

The average produce on the American plate has traveled 1,500 miles, is between 7- 14 days old, and has wasted criminal amounts of fossil fuel from fertilization to harvest. If it's processed and packaged, it's even worse.

We chose this project as a class because we feel that it is important that people know about the food that they are eating, where it comes from, and what goes into it. We soon found that there are other organizations that have the same concerns we do.

 

We also gained a new understanding of how simple actions can have an immense impact on our environment...

There's nothing quite like the scent of a eucalyptus forest after an extended dry spell is broken by rain - everything smells so clean and fresh!

 

Eucalyptus trees, more commonly known as gum trees locally, are the predominant genus of trees in Australia. Australia has over 600 species; comprising nearly 75% of our flora.

“P” is for phosphorus, the stuff of life, and “p” is for “peak phosphorus” by 2030, ecologists say, unless — presto! — pee can be turned into gold through modern-day alchemy.

 

Unremarked and unregulated by the United Nations and other high-level assemblies, the world’s supply of phosphate rock, the dominant source of phosphorus for fertilizer, is being rapidly — and wastefully — drawn down. By most estimates, the best deposits will be gone in 50 to 100 years...

Sandbags have long been used for creating strong, protective barriers, or for flood control...

I'll bet I'm the only person to thru hike the Colorado Trail with a curly wig, a sailor’s hat and a bag of animal stickers. On July 23rd, 2008 I leave Denver, Colorado on a 53-day journey through the heart of the Rocky Mountains. Of course I have my basic camping essentials including a ceramic water filter, a down sleeping bag and 3-season tent. But in addition I pack my teaching essentials: “Love Vision” goggles, a fuzzy Bobcat hat, 60 Colorado animal necklaces and, most importantly, my backpacker’s guitar.
