Trees hug you back with the Tree$ense web app | Garden apps for mobile devices | Scoop.it

Trees make sense. They add beauty to every season of the landscape, they cleanse the air, absorb CO2, reduce rainwater runoff and shield us from sun and wind. Trees make sense. But trees also make cents. Yes, cents … as in dollars and cents.


While we don’t expect you to actually harvest $20 bills from your leafy friends, trees do work for us in major, quantifiable ways. In fact, trees may be one of the best financial investments you make on your property.

Open Source Seed Initiative: "Free the Seed!"

Open Source Seed Initiative: "Free the Seed!" | Garden apps for mobile devices | Scoop.it

From The Daily Page: Farmers have traditionally gathered and saved seeds from one growing season to plant in the next. But this age-old tradition is being threatened by corporations that are increasingly restricting access to seeds through patents.

A new group with ties to the University of Wisconsin-Madison is trying to counter this trend by ensuring that certain seed lines are never patented and remain accessible to individuals who want to plant or use them to produce new varieties. Following the lead of supporters of open-source software, the Open Source Seed Initiative hopes to promote an ethic of sharing among plant breeders.
