“Off grid” – Paret som byggde en egen självförsörjande ö — NewsVoice.se – 22 November, 2018

Livskonstnärerna Catherine King och Wayne Adams byggde en bosättning vid Vancouver Island som flyter fritt och endast är fastbunden med linor till land. De lever där helt oberoende från konventionella leverantörer och kommunens service. De odlar sin mat på den flytande plattformen och fiskar direkt från havet och ibland när vädret är dåligt fiskar Wayne genom ett hål i golvet i vardagsrummet. De började bygga sin bosättning för 26 år sedan och de har inte ångrat sitt beslut att leva “off grid”. Video: “Off the Grid on a Homemade Island”

Growing for a better world: The 5 benefits of organic gardening – November 16, 2017

(Natural News) We can all do our part in helping regenerate the Earth. This can be as small as learning how to garden. Organic backyard farming, or simply gardening, is one of the best ways to start helping our communities and our environment.

Commercial agriculture creates only a few jobs, since most commercial farms make use of machinery. In small, developing countries, farmers are paid less than the minimum wage in compensation for their hard work. Being a commercial farmer isn’t all that great, since companies that own the farms take 95 percent of the earnings for themselves. It also isn’t beneficial to the land itself, since chemicals, synthetics, and other artificial materials are used to eliminate pests and weeds. If chemical pesticides and weed-killing substances are poisonous to humans, then it would be lethal to the soil and to nature as well.

Organic gardening is the best activity to start if you’re concerned about your health, the environment, and want to find more ways to control your finances (and earn a bit more on the side). It isn’t rocket science, and some schools even incorporate community gardening into kindergarten curricula! If you still aren’t convinced, here are a few reasons why you should start your own organic produce garden.
