The twelve leverage points to intervene in a system were proposed by Donella Meadows, a scientist and system analyst focused on environmental limits to economic growth.[1] Contents History[edit] The leverage points, first published in 1997, were inspired by Meadows' attendance at a North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) meeting in the early 1990s, where she realized a very large new system was being proposed but the mechanisms to manage it were ineffective.

Twelve leverage points

Meadows, who worked in the field of systems analysis, proposed a scale of places to intervene in a system. 20 Vegetables You Can Re-Grow From Scraps. How To Grow Blueberries In Pots. It does not matter whether you have a large property, a tiny garden, or no garden at all, container gardening is a great solution for growing a range of different plants.

How To Grow Blueberries In Pots

Blueberries are one edible crop that does well when grown in containers, so in this article, we’ll take a look at how to grow blueberries in pots.

Understanding the Two Sides to Soil Organic Matter Can Help Us Improve Soil Health – On Pasture. This story comes to us from Anne Manning at Colorado State University.

Understanding the Two Sides to Soil Organic Matter Can Help Us Improve Soil Health – On Pasture

It’s helpful to our community because it gives us a better understanding of what is going on in the soil beneath our feet as we work to improve soil health. PHC Film: Il suolo è un organismo vivente. There’s another story to tell about climate change. And it starts with water. It’s easy for all concerned about air, water and nature to descend into despair as we watch brazen rollbacks of environmental legislation in the US.

There’s another story to tell about climate change. And it starts with water

Just last week, developments included an executive order to rewrite US carbon emissions rules, jeopardising the country’s ability to uphold its Paris climate talk commitment; the end of a moratorium on new coal leases; and the green-lighting of a pesticide claimed to cause harm to children. But as apathy is not an option, let’s try to think beyond the usual strategies. For one, we can recognise that the way we talk about our environmental challenges has interfered with our ability to truly grapple with them: that we limit ourselves by creating too simple a story. Specifically, the story we tell about climate. Organic Farming Practices - Rodale Institute. Organic vs Conventional - Rodale Institute. Organic agriculture is a production system that regenerates the health of soils, ecosystems, and people.

Organic vs Conventional - Rodale Institute

Organic farmers rely on natural processes, biodiversity, and cycles adapted to local conditions rather than the use of synthetic inputs like chemical fertilizers, pesticides, and herbicides. GMOs are not allowed in organic. The difference between organic and conventional The essential difference between organic and conventional farming is that conventional farming relies on chemical intervention to fight pests and weeds and provide plant nutrition. That means synthetic pesticides, herbicides, and fertilizers. But it is worse than that. – Rosher dot net – the home of Incredibish. The Permaculture Research Institute.

Applying Permaculture Principles to Livelihood Design

Below I have used Holmgren’s 12 principles of permaculture to explore what a permaculture livelihood could involve: 1. Permaculture Principles. Permaculture Design Principles. The foundations of permaculture are the ethics (centre) which guide the use of the 12 design principles, ensuring that they are used in appropriate ways. These principles are seen as universal, although the methods used to express them will vary greatly according to the place and situation. They are applicable to our personal, economic, social and political reorganisation as illustrated in the permaculture flower. Each principle can be thought of as a door that opens into whole systems thinking, providing a different perspective that can be understood at varying levels of depth and application.

Urban Zones & Sectors. Finding & Creating Microclimates. The term microclimate describes the climate of a small, specific place within a larger area.

Finding & Creating Microclimates

This could be a hillside on the edge of a city or an area as small as a backyard or park which can then have several different microclimates of their own depending on how much sunlight, shade, or exposure to the wind the space gets. For example we live in Hobart, a cool temperate region – think frosty, cold winters with snow on the mountain and mild summers. However we live on N.E facing hillside on the edge of Hobart city where we’re protected from the full force of the wild westerly winds and the chilly southerlies. We only get mild frosts over winter and once we chop down some particularly massive cypress macrocarpa trees on our NW side, we’ll have all day sun hitting both the house and garden. Our property is also above the cool air drainage and harsh frosts that hits the valley floor (full of houses) below us.

Within our property exist several microclimates. Microclimate - A Permaculture Design Course Handbook. In the book Introduction to Permaculture, Bill Mollison succintly present ways in which we can accentuate microclimates to enhance our systems.

General circulation model. A type of climate model that uses the Navier–Stokes equations on a rotating sphere with thermodynamic terms for various energy sources Climate models are systems of differential equations based on the basic laws of physics, fluid motion, and chemistry. To "run" a model, scientists divide the planet into a 3-dimensional grid, apply the basic equations, and evaluate the results. Atmospheric models calculate winds, heat transfer, radiation, relative humidity, and surface hydrology within each grid and evaluate interactions with neighboring points.[1] This visualization shows early test renderings of a global computational model of Earth's atmosphere based on data from NASA's Goddard Earth Observing System Model, Version 5 (GEOS-5).

A general circulation model (GCM) is a type of climate model. GCMs and global climate models are used for weather forecasting, understanding the climate and forecasting climate change.
