Diagram of a traditional swale system Hobart is Australia’s second driest capital city (Adelaide’s first) so catching and storing water is often on my mind.

Ethni-City Gardens's curator insight, March 3, 2014 7:42 PM
Great article. The land we will garden on (hopefully!) is too far away from a fire hydrant. We don't want to use city water so we have to come up with an alternative way of watering. This fits the bill very well.

The Plight of the Honeybee

The Plight of the Honeybee | AgroEcology | Scoop.it

So what's killing the honeybees? Pesticides — including a new class called neonicotinoids — seem to be harming bees even at what should be safe levels. Biological threats like the Varroa mite are killing off colonies directly and spreading deadly diseases. As our farms become monocultures of commodity crops like wheat and corn — plants that provide little pollen for foraging bees — honeybees are literally starving to death. If we don't do something, there may not be enough honeybees to meet the pollination demands for valuable crops. But more than that, in a world where up to 100,000 species go extinct each year, the vanishing honeybee could be the herald of a permanently diminished planet.
