Design | WarkaWater | Permaculture, Homesteading & Green Technology | Scoop.it

The Warka’s water harvesting technique and construction system are inspired by several sources. Many plants and animals have developed unique micro- and nano-scale structural features on their surfaces that enable them to collect water from the air and survive in hostile environments. By studying the Namib beetle’s shell, lotus flower leaves, spider web threads and the integrated fog collection system in cactus, we are identifying specific materials and coatings that can enhance dew condensation and water flow and storage capabilities of the mesh. The termite hives have influenced the design of Warka’s outer shell, its airflow, shape and geometry. We also looked at local cultures and vernacular architecture, incorporating traditional Ethiopian basket-weaving techniques in Warka’s design.

Improve Lettuce Seed Germination | Terroir Seeds

Improve Lettuce Seed Germination | Terroir Seeds | Permaculture, Homesteading & Green Technology | Scoop.it
When lettuce is mentioned, many think of the standard iceberg lettuce found in supermarkets and restaurant salads. That is changing with the growth in popularity of the different types of lettuces from Romaine to head and leaf-type lettuces, mainly due to the flavors and colors that they offer from deep red to almost white and noticeably sweet to tangy and slightly bitter. Iceberg lettuce, originally bred as a hybrid, is now offered as an open pollinated variety and has been around long enough to be considered by some as an “heirloom”!

What You Need to Know About Growing Millet

What You Need to Know About Growing Millet | Permaculture, Homesteading & Green Technology | Scoop.it

"Millet is a fast-growing late-season crop, is easily adaptable in the kitchen and outstrips many more common grains as a nutritional powerhouse.

 

Millet won’t compete, pound for pound, as hay or pasture with legumes in nutritional value, but it has other advantages. Thirty days after you plant it you can be using it. No legume can make that claim. It has good insect resistance and is relatively free of disease, which together with its ability to grow on rather poor land makes it a desirable crop for any organic grower not wanting to use commercial fertilizers."

12 plants that repel unwanted insects - mother nature network | Permaculture, Homesteading & Green Technology | Scoop.it

"Are you an insect magnet? If you aren’t, you probably know one. Insect magnets attract annoying insects the second they walk outdoors — or so it seems. If this describes you, take comfort in knowing that one of the ways you can fight back against mosquitoes, gnats, flies, no-see-ums and other pesky bugs doesn’t have to involve covering yourself with a sticky spray or engaging in chemical warfare. To help you enjoy going outdoors, try strategically placing insect-repelling plants in your garden or on your patio."

Farm Therapy: A Natural Approach to Improve Sensory Integration · The Natural Farmer

"Occupational therapy on a farm, with real jobs that must be done regularly to maintain the land and the animals, improves sensory integration, self-awareness, and relationships with others. Farms, like children, involve growth, nurturing, hard work – and down-to-earth fun!  

The connectedness inherent in this way of life can promote healthy change at all levels for children with developmental delays. The interconnection of the natural rhythms of weather, seasons, daily responsibilities, play, music and dancing, story and song can bring especially important life experiences to individuals with physical, emotional, or intellectual challenges."

Here’s the real thing killing bees: Us

Here’s the real thing killing bees: Us | Permaculture, Homesteading & Green Technology | Scoop.it
There’s a lot that can be done. In California there’s an organization working with farmers to create bee habitat — among other things, it provides farmers with pollinator-friendly seed mixtures for cover crops and hedgerows. Even when they are trucking in domestic honeybees, fruit and nut farmers still rely heavily on wild pollinators — so they have an incentive to make improvements. As Manu Sanders pointed out previously in Grist, if you want bees, you have to provide food and lodging.
