I  like  this  article  a  lot  it  takes  you  step  by  step  through  what  you  need  to  do  to  set  up  a  verticle  garden.

If  you  grow  beans  you are  there  already   basicly  if  a  plant got  tendrils  then  its  a  climber 

Melons  and  grapes  are  an  example 

Try  it  out

Serious Fraud Office opens investigation into Global Forestry Investments

Serious Fraud Office opens investigation into Global Forestry Investments | Forestry | Scoop.it

The Serious Fraud Office has opened a criminal investigation into “alleged fraud concerning Global Forestry Investments”. The company’s “ethical” investments in teak plantations in Brazil may not have been so ethical after all.

REDD-Monitor wrote about Global Forestry Investments in March 2014. The company, which is now in liquidation, was run by Andrew Skeene and Omari Bowers. GFI offered retail investors a chance to invest a minimum of £5,000 in the Belem Sky teak plantation in Brazil, promising returns of “10-20% per annum”.

Andrew Callen, a solicitor at Alisons Legal Practice in Wales, is acting on behalf of 80 people who handed over money to Global Forestry Investments. In September 2014, Callen told the News and Star that somewhere between £10 million and £20 million has been lost.

Major study shows biodiversity losses can be reversed

Major study shows biodiversity losses can be reversed | Forestry | Scoop.it
“The study is the first global analysis of human impacts on local biodiversity. It is a major collaboration between the Natural History Museum, United Nations Environment Programme World Conservation Monitoring Centre (UNEP-WCMC), and British universities.Scientists submitted data from more than 70 countries and considered 26,593 species, adding more than 1.1 million records to the PREDICTS (Projecting Responses of Ecological Diversity In Changing Terrestrial Systems) survey database.The team's figure of a 14 per cent drop in species in local ecosystems is a global average. So local biodiversity in some areas is still quite intact, but others - including Western Europe - have had losses of 20-30 per cent.”

Garry Rogers's curator insight, April 1, 2015 8:23 PM

Making projections requires assumptions about what we are going to do. Reviews of this research try to be optimistic by emphasizing positive projections. However, if we make the most likely assumption that we will do nothing substantive to stop global warming, deforestation, and human population growth, the red areas will spread.  As stated earlier, everyone that cares needs to begin making local efforts to preserve biodiversity.
