Think Green


by Jeff Kagan

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.

Recently the phenomenon of global warming is gaining new attention in the mainstream media. Some are skeptical, but the facts are that the 15 hottest years have all been since 1980, the top three in the last five years. Some scientists calculate average world temperatures will increase by 10 degrees by 2100, causing genocidal damage to the planet...

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.

As an avid protein consumer I know well how important it is to eat veggies.  Protein is acidic while vegetables are alkaline and hence a perfect marriage. We need to have the perfect balance of protein and veggies...

According to staggering new statistics from the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), roughly one-third of the food produced worldwide for human consumption is lost or wasted, amounting to some 1.3 billion tons per year. In the developing world, over 40 percent of food losses occur after harvest—while being stored or transported, and during processing and packing. In industrialized countries, more than 40 percent of losses occur as a result of retailers and consumers discarding unwanted but often perfectly edible food...

With the endless flood of new electronics on the market, we’ve long been needing a better way to recycle the components…so now a lab in the UK has discovered a way to do it.  (Hint: the key is hot water!)

Between the years of 1975 – 1976, the Cambodian farmer, Name Name, like most farmers in the country during that time, grew vegetables and rice to feed the soldiers of the Lon Nol regime.

Using his bare hands, Name mixed the chemicals DDT, Folidol, Phostrin and Kontrin in order to keep the pests away from his crops. As a result, he suffered from strange and uncomfortable physical symptoms...

If you enter the word ‘Wheatgrass’ into a search engine, you’ll be astonished to discover over 4 million results. Why so much interest in the seven-day sprouted grass from wheat berries? The answer is a simple one. Wheatgrass is the rock star of green foods. It has immeasurable health benefits...


Editor's Note
: I always knew that wheatgrass was something that I should have but I never really knew all the benefits! Thanks Harry for making it so obvious that I need to incorporate this into my lifestyle.

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!
