Energy Efficient Food Preservation Once you've gotten started with gardening, you'll soon have to find a way to deal with the surplus (hopefully you've planned for this!). Hopefully, you may be inspired to try building your own solar food dryer, maybe even one like the model we designed, shown further below. We have type 304 stainless steel, plain weave, 12-mesh, .018" wire size, dryer screening available for immediate shipment. Of course, food that is fresh is best, but our Minnesota winters challenge that approach. Basic Design Principles:

Loch Ard Gorge Loch Ard Gorge panorama, July 2005 History[edit] The arch of the nearby Island Archway collapsed in June 2009.

Today’s post is a super-easy and fun way to make a vanilla extract. You will need – 8oz vodka 6 vanilla pods (organic is best of course) Put the pods in the vodka and leave in a closed, labeled bottle / jar for six weeks. That’s it! Notes – 1) Making this extract should of course be done by an adult or with adult supervision as there is alcohol involved. 2) Important – this is not “Vanilla Vodka”. 3) To make sure no-one else attempts to take a swig, please don’t use the original vodka bottle for your extract! 4) As this is a natural home-made herbal product, the final strength will not be “standardized” and so the amount needed may be different from that called for by recipes.

Natural Pools or Swimming Ponds Natural Pools or Natural Swimming Ponds (NSPs) Let nature clean the water... Chemical-free water garden and swimming pool. The plant portion, or regeneration zone, is separated from the swimming area by the wall seen a few inches below the water’s surface. The pools have skimmers and pumps that circulate the water through the regeneration zone and back into the swimming area. The aquatic plants filter out contaminants and use nutrients from the water as food which helps prevent algae. Then rocks, such as granite river rock or haydite, to which friendly bacteria attach, act as biological filters. There are many options as to design. A gradual slope contains the plants, gravel and loamy sand, a wall keeps them separate from the swimming area. Vacuum but twice a year and tend to the plants as needed. The regeneration zone can be along the perimeter of a natural pool or a pond unto itself but connected to the swimming area. Northeast U.S.

An Upturned Reality An Upturned Reality Posted by wildflowa on May 9, 2013 · Leave a Comment In 2012, photographer Hossein Zare has a piece honored as on of 500px’s best fine art photos of the year . The photo, called Passenger is a stunning image of a man walking down a desolate road (see below). Landfill Harmonic — A Moving Story About 'The Recycled Orchestra' in Paraguay Landfill Harmonic is a heartfelt story of how instruments made from recycled garbage have brought hope to children whose future was otherwise spiritless. It all began when a garbage picker named Nicolás Gómez found what resembled a violin in a landfill in Paraguay. The landfill actually serves as a primary form of subsistence for many local residents; a place where a violin is worth more than a house. Using other found objects, Nicolás transformed the garbage he had found into a fully functional violin. He soon after built a flute, cello, and drum, and then a youth’s orchestra was born. A group is making a film about the project and are currently seeking funding on Kickstarter. Share With Your Friends
