Bokashi-Komposteimer | Ding des Monats | Verbund Offener Werkstätten Kompost ist das Lebenselixier für jeden Garten! Küchenabfälle haben wir meistens genug, aber in der Stadt häufig keinen Platz für einen Kompost. Die japanische Methode des “Bokashi-Kompost” ist deshalb sehr gut geeignet, weil dieser Eimer auch auf einem Balkon oder einfach in der Küche Platz hat. Er riecht tatsächlich kaum und wenn doch, streut einfach ein bisschen Gesteinsmehl darüber (gibt´s in der Gartenabteilung). So sieht ein fertiger, großer Bokashi-Eimer aus Bokashi-Eimer gibt es teuer zu kaufen. Hier gibt es noch Infos zu bokashi: Für den Boakishi-Eimer braucht ihr: - zwei gleichgroße Eimer mit mind. einem festschliessenden Deckel (ebay) - einen Ablaufhahn (ebay) - einen Fahrradschlauch - eine leere stabile Plastikflasche - einen großen, stabilen Müllbeutel - Sand - eine Bohrmaschine - einen Schälbohrer - einen Tacker In einen zweiten (!) Das sieht dann so aus.

An Old Swing Set Frame Turned Into A DIY Chicken Coop… Here’s a really clever DIY project. Turning an old swing set frame, either broken or no longer used by the kids into an A frame chicken coop. They’ve simply used the frame of the old swing set, attached some supporting metal around the base to hold it all in shape, attached some corrugated iron sheeting to one end, some capping on the roof, added a door, and attached some chicken wire… The yellow metal runners are being added to help give the entire structure more support… …a close up view of how they’re being fixed… …starting to fix the corrugated iron… …view from behind with sheets attached to the back and both sides… …view from the front… …chicken wire being fixed and it seems the chooks are already interested in their new home… …a frame for the door has been added to the front… …and the door fixed into the frame… …view from the inside showing nesting boxes, perch, watering and feed containers… …the final chicken coop… You might also like to check out this one too –

How a $2 Pocket Knife is ReGreening Africa How can barren fields, degraded forests and grazing lands be reforested without planting a single tree? Is it possible? Well yes, according to Tony Rinaudo and his work with World Vision in regenerating over 30,000 acres in West Africa all with the aid of just a simple pocket knife and a clever idea. In the Niger it is estimated 60 million trees were planted from nurseries over 20 year period with less than a 25% survival rate. Tony Rinaudo wondered what to do to help give trees a chance of surviving in this desolate location. “I felt very discouraged. “How many million dollars would I need? “I prayed and asked God to open my eyes and to show me what to do.” Overgrazed and stunted branches of trees dot the Niger landscape. One day Tony Rinaudo noticed that many of the ground shrubs were actually trees could not regenerate because they were heavily overgrazed in many areas of Africa. The shrubs and trees were literally eaten down to the stump by grazing animals (figure 2). “You’ve got shade.

Allan Savory’s TED talk is wrong, and the benefits of holistic grazing have been debunked. Photo by Vyacheslav Oseledko/AFP/Getty Images When Allan Savory finished his TED talk early last month, foodies worldwide collectively salivated. In roughly 22 minutes, Savory, a biologist and former member of the Rhodesian Parliament, challenged the conventional wisdom blaming livestock for the degradation of global grasslands into hardpan deserts. It has long been a basic tenet of environmentalism that 10,000 years of overgrazing has caused this desertification. Savory’s hypothesis hinges on what he calls “holistic management and planned grazing.” Savory’s speech quickly attracted praise. Well, not so fast. Instead, there were problems during the Charter Grazing Trials, ones not mentioned in Savory’s dramatic talk. The extension of Savory’s grazing techniques to other regions of Africa and North America has produced even less encouraging results. Even if Savory’s plan could scale, foodies would still have to curb their carnivorous cravings.

Perennial Vegetables to Plant Once and Enjoy For Years To Come!!! Perennial vegetables—crops that you plant just once and harvest year after year—are relatively rare in North American gardens. With the exception of asparagus, rhubarb and artichokes, most gardeners are probably unaware of the tasty, extremely low-maintenance bounty that can be harvested when many annual crops aren’t available. A Brief History of Perennial Crops According to Perennial Vegetables by Eric Toensmeier, most North American gardening and farming traditions come from Europe, where there are very few perennial crops except fruits and nuts. Cold and temperate Eurasian agriculture centered around livestock, annual grains and legumes, and early European settlers to North America simply brought their seeds and their cultivation methods with them, including draft animals for plowing up the soil every year. However, in more temperate and tropical areas of the world, including much of North America, perennial root, starch and fruit crops were actively bred, selected and cultivated.
