Water woz ere. A clearly hydrated landscape thanks to good hydrological design at Strathcona Community Garden, Vancouver Canada We’re all becoming acutely aware of the value of water. And so we should, as water’s role in our lives and in the planets’ cycles cannot really be understated. When designing and planning a Permaculture system, it’s top of the list – the order goes: Water, Access, Structure. Design and sort out your water catchments and systems before you design anything else.

OCA is happy to announce the formation of a new national distribution service for home delivery of organic and non-GMO foods, at 30-50% below the cost of retail, with free shipping on orders of $150 or more. The new national distribution club is called the Green Polka Dot Box ("GPDB"). When GPDB opens in late September, it will be offering annual "Club" ($50) and "Reward" ($125) memberships. Prior to launch, however, the OCA, OCA Director Ronnie Cummins, and hundreds of allies are purchasing "Founding Trust Memberships" (essentially pre-paying for the first $2000 worth of purchases) to provide initial operating capital before the GPDB formally opens for business. After several years of asking Whole Foods, Trader Joe's, and other natural food stores to stop selling so-called natural foods tainted with genetically engineered ingredients, or at least to voluntarily label these products, we're tired of waiting.
Although Associated Buyers is a privately owned entity, the company's origins are deeply rooted in cooperative business principles and ethics that compliments our long-standing tradition of serving Buying Club accounts throughout New England. Buying Clubs are comprised of individuals and families ordering collectively to achieve a bulk purchasing advantage. Aside from the time and devotion involved in the buying club process, there are many benefits to this arrangement not the least of which is access to high quality, wholesome foods at affordable prices. Beyond the monetary advantage, there is often a sense of community that belonging to an organization of like-minded people generates. Many buying clubs are comprised of neighbors, mother's groups, co-workers, young couples, church members, or family members.

(NaturalNews) Those readers who eat meat probably already know that conventional meat preserving methods typically involve the use of sodium nitrite and other chemical additives linked to causing cancer and other serious health conditions. But new research out of Denmark could eliminate the need for such chemicals by replacing them with herbs, berries and other organic substances that have natural preserving properties. Scientists from Aarhus University in Denmark have collaborated with the Danish Meat Research Institute (DMRI) to come up with new methods of preserving meat that do not involve synthetic chemicals. And one area of research where they have seen considerable promise thus far involves adding natural herbs and fruits with antibacterial and antiviral characteristics to meat. For their initial research, Aarhus scientists made a list of 37 plant species believed to have antibacterial properties, which included rosemary, rhubarb, wild garlic, sea buckthorn, rose hip, and hops.
What do you do when you want to grow your own food, but live here? That's the question my dad wanted to answer when he started this project about a year ago: Living at 7,750 feet above sea level, with a summer growing season of 80 days, at best, between killing freezes, how can you grow your own food? The answer, as it turns out, is pretty cool: A geodesic dome solar greenhouse. Click through to see what it's like to build one for yourself, and how the garden grows inside once you're done.
Ten Acres Enough E dmund Morris had dreamed for many years of moving to the country, reading all he could about farming and taking a keen interest in anything agricultural. His city life had had its ups and downs and although close to bankruptcy on more than one occasion he had managed to settle his affairs and resolved to quit the city before things got any worse "the whole business horizon seemed full of coming storms, which burst successively with desolating severity". He was under no illusions; farming would be hard work and was unlikely to make him rich, but he believed strongly that it could be made to keep him and his family comfortable and so he embarked on his journey towards self sufficiency...
It’s hard to believe but, yes, spring is on its way. And with it all kinds of wonderful green things like arugula, celery, and cherry tomatoes. If you’re a gardener, you’ve probably already started your seedlings (or at least have an order in for black seeded Simpson lettuce, Astro Arugula or sugar snap peas).
Overview Instead of cluttering up the landfill with more and more plastic milk jugs, why not be green and employ them as planters for tiny seedlings? Gallon milk jugs are the ideal size, lightweight and, best of all, an efficient and inexpensive way to get garden plants or flowers off to a good start.
