  • A little rough and dirty designing to round out the day. This is the area encompassing our current three growing tunnels...where I have been trying to create a sun trap for several years, to increase warmth for a longer season and warmer nights by collecting radiant heat off the tunnel bodies. It has been incomplete so far...needing windbreak fencing (faster than trees or shrubs in this climate) to be optimal (I hope). The existing gaps to the west (small) and the north (larger) and to the east (the least wind penetration from this side) have still funneled the wind, though not as intensely as out in the open field area. For this sketch, North is the right side of the page, West at the top. I’m working on an online Permaculture Design Course and will be doing a detail map of the area that encompasses the market gardens, in addition to the larger base map for the whole property. There will be shrubs and fruit trees intermingled with perennial and annual growing beds, if all goes to plan. #smallfarms #permaculturedesign #livelihood #permaculturefarm #captureandstoreenergy #permaculturewomen #marketgardening #biodiversity #pollinatorhabitat #foodandmedicine #beauty #afarmevolving #obtainayield #stackingfunctions #grownwith❤️ #wilsall #bozeman #montana

  • Bis zur Hüfte im Wasser sollte man nicht in jedem Moor stehen. Etwas tollkühn bin ich unter anderem schon ein paar Mal im Naturschutzgebiet Schnepfenberg im Diersfordter Wald in Nordrhein-Westfalen gewesen - für die Käfer natürlich! Im Wasser zwischen den Torfmoospolstern lebt eine Vielzahl an Tieren, einige Käferarten beispielsweise, gibt es am Niederrhein nur hier. Diese Arten nachzuweisen, ist jedoch mit etwas Aufwand verbunden: die Torfmoose (Sphagnum spp.) müssen “heruntergetreten“ werden. Dabei stellt man sich auf eine Stelle und wackelt ein wenig, sodass durch leichtes Versinken eine frei werdene Wasserfläche entsteht. Darin kann dann gekeschert und nach Arten dieses spezifischen Lebenraums gesucht werden. Ich habe immer das Gefühl, je tiefer ich versinke, desto spannender sind die Arten. Nachmachen bitte nur unter Vorbehalt! Ein wenig Erfahrung sollte man Stück für Stück sammeln und mit etwas Absicherung an die Sache herangehen. Mit etwas Respekt vor Mooren ist das jedoch jedes Mal ein Traum für Entomolog*innen! Ein selten betriebener Aufwand, allerdings die einzige Methode, um nach hochspezialisierten Moorbewohnern zu suchen.

  • "Inside this building is 13,000 years of agricultural history," - @blainoff . The list of 'how to kill biodiversity' is long and unpredictable. We may not be able to prevent such catastrophes, but we can surely prepare for its aftermath. One preventative measure is the Seed & Gene Banks which hosts genetic materials such as seeds, eggs and sperms of various organisms. These materials are frozen, preserved and could be brought back to life when necessary. (This resurrection is more complicated for animals; see 'artificial insemination'). . When the raging wars in Iraq and Afghanistan destroyed local gene banks, many genetic materials were lost to humanity, never to be recovered. A similar fate happened to Philippine's national gene bank, this time by natural disasters. . To prevent such atrocities, Svalbard Global Seed Vault, aka 'Doomsday Vault' was founded in remote permafrost of Norway. This global backup is proven effective when the Syrian Gene bank was partially resurrected in Lebanon and Morocco years after its destruction, thanks to the back-up seeds in the Svalbard Vault. . However, within the cosmic scale, even the Doomsday Vault is vulnerable for destruction. If genetic back-ups are such valuable assets, shouldn't we have another vault, away from any Earth-born danger, off the planet? . The fun exploration of the PROJECT SEED begins here. .

  • **NEW EPISODE IS LIVE** As the clock ticks, trees in the western United States are dying twice as quickly as they did three decades ago, and scientists think global warming is to blame. Rapid disruption, intentional removal, and destruction of old growth and large canopy forests is leaving big trees exceptionally vulnerable to elevated mortality. Large old trees play critical ecological roles and provide nesting or sheltering cavities for up to 30% of all birds and animals in some ecosystems. Though seeming fixtures of our lives and markers of growth in the age of the two-legged, giant trees are under ever-growing attack. Our guest this week, Dr. William Laurance, wrote the following in his succinctly titled “Big trees in trouble: How the mighty are falling.” “Large trees sustain countless other species. Their hollows and crevices provide shelter for myriad animals and their trunks and branches can become gardens, festooned with ferns, orchids, bromeliads, and other epiphytes coated with mosses and lichens and draped with vines. With their tall canopies basking in the sun, they capture vast amounts of energy. This allows them to produce massive crops of fruits, flowers, and foliage that sustain much of the animal life in the forest.” This week on #ForTheWild podcast, Ayana speaks to Dr. William Laurance on the driving forces behind the disappearance of ancient trees and the critical ecological roles that they play in distinguishing forest types. “The decline of big trees foretells a different world where ancient behemoths are replaced by short-lived pioneers and generalists that can grow anywhere,” he wrote. “Where forests store less carbon and sustain fewer dependent animals, and where giant cathedral like crowns become a thing of the past.” Listen to this episode brought to you by our friends at the Kalliopeia Foundation who, like us, share a reverence for nature, on #Spotify, #iTunes, or wherever you choose to stream. #linkinbio #bigtrees #ancienttrees #treesofig #newepisode #podcast #podcasting #biodiversity #forests #deforestation #rewilding #rainforest #amazon #DrWilliamLaurance #canopy #oldgrowth #ecology #deepecology #Photo: Josh Carter
