Editor's Note from Eden Kozlowski: This video was shared with me from our new editor on PsychoSpiritual. I think it is worth sharing because it is done by a group of students at Lakeside High School in Seattle, WA.

Here in the Sharing Gardens we practice a style of gardening known as "deep mulching". Just as it is rare to find bare soil in nature, in our gardens you won't find much exposed soil either...


Editor’s notes: This is a good time of year to mulch your gardens.  It will build your soil, and provide nutrients for living soil organisms that keep your plants healthy.  If you have a winter garden,  mulch will help keep your plants warm.

Editor's Note from Cara Ryan: This video uses products you already have in the house! What's simpler and more green than that?

The term “permaculture” first meant “permanent agriculture” and then evolved to mean “permanent culture.” It was coined by the two Australian founders of the permaculture movement, Bill Mollison and David Holmgren.

 

Editor’s notes: I’m a permaculture teacher, and you may well be wondering what that means. Permaculture is a complex topic, not the easiest thing to define. Here’s a beginning, with more to come later . . . .

Parenting is tough.  Not only are you charged with raising a child to be physically and emotionally healthy but also socially responsible.  In this age of melting ice-caps, overflowing landfills and dwindling natural resources , it’s more important than ever to raise an eco-friendly child...

 
Editor's Note
: I find this article to be really fun! Stacey shares some easy ways to "greenify" children's lives early on for a lasting impact.

A 'swale' is simply a long, shallow depression in the ground, designed to collect or redirect water. In general, permaculture swales are used to mimic the water-collecting and -holding abilities of a thick forest mulch.

Swales are most useful in reforestation of degraded, mostly-bare, arid or semi-arid hillsides, to direct water to trees (this water would otherwise run off the bare soil and be lost to the local landscape). In a healthy forest with a thick mulch of leaves or needles covering the ground, very little runoff occurs and swales would usually be unnecessary. A healthy forest is very good at managing its own water resources—if it ain't broke, spend your time fixing something that is.


Editor’s notes: Swales are ditches that are created to help water seep into the soil, making it more available to plants rather than letting the water run off your land.  This also prevents erosion of precious soil. Here’s a description of different kinds of swales.

Why do people value money so much? There is, after all, nothing very attractive about grubby pieces of paper, dirty metal discs, or digital records in a database. Money gives us the ability to obtain the things or situations we desire. With money we can buy the security, power, recognition, stimulus, or whatever else we think we need in order to find fulfillment...

As climate change worsens, and fresh water availability grows more erratic, the food security of small-scale farmers throughout Africa will increasingly depend on their water management abilities.

You’re sitting in your home; you flip a switch, an appliance powered by electricity turns on and provides cooling, entertainment or heat. Seems harmless enough. Half of America ’s electrical power is generated by coal burning power plants, which produces a waste product called fly ash...

Urban Homestead: Local, Organic and in the City

from Organic Connections Magazine

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.
