Replacing city and well water with captured rainwater for landscaping efficiently uses this valuable resource, reduces personal water bills, and decreases the overall demand on public water supplies...

 

Editor’s Note: Fresh water is one of the most essential resources, yet it’s being rapidly depleted from our underground reservoirs as we pump them for agricultural, industrial and personal use.  Here’s a way to restore groundwater levels, while at the same time benefit from rainwater’s purity.

by Jane Kline Kabler

The buzz word in markets is all about organic foods and as we shop in our favorite markets, they are becoming more available in a great variety. The prices are somewhat higher, but it's all about eating what we know is pure and healthy for us and not contaminated with large amounts of pesticides and chemicals...


Editor's Note: Jane shares some great info about organic eating and cooking here. I personally can't wait to try her cake frosting recipe...mmmmmm.

Heat from the sun gets absorbed into our atmosphere, and therein lies the basis of global warming, but Stanford scientists have developed a panel that can return heat to space.  Is this the basis for future geo-engineering?

Fergus Drennan from the UK hasn't eaten store bought food in two years.

He is a master forager -- living off of what he can find in nature: edible plants, mushrooms, berries and seaweed from the beach...

 by Brenton Johnson

Brenton Johnson represents a new breed of young, organic farmers whose philosophy is to live in harmony with the land and bring back a sustainable way of life. Naturally (no pun intended), he advocates buying local food. In between tending his turnips and perusing the potatoes, Brenton penned this wise, authoritative list of ten reasons to buy local food. This isn't just about helping the local farmer, it's about preserving our planet -- and eatin' better, too!...

Editor's Note: This is such an important and inspiring video. If these young people and their stand on food, growing food, sustainability and most of all their willingness to actually do something about it and create change where they are, are any indication of the future of food in this country, then we might just be able to stop worrying a bit. But only as long as we let them be our example and then begin our own permaculture gardens in our communities and backyards.
