Earth Hour Results

Marguerite Daisy August 2006

Just a quick link posted below, to show the results of

last night’s global Earth Hour activity.

It was certainly interesting to try and

read by candlelight, really took some

adjustments, but the beauty and the glow

of the different atmosphere temporarily

brought reality back to an older, bygone era.

City Walls of Nature


Just a quick article to show how a brilliant

designer, Patrick Blanc, is transforming

cities with vertical gardens.  Mr Blanc has

patented the vertical design*, allowing the greening

of city buildings, inside and out.  Take a look

at his wonderful website gallery, “Walls”, a slideshow of

beautiful, sustainable ideas.  Great concept for

getting nature back into urban places.

*Mr Blanc’s designs are patented, therefore, are

not to be copied.  Further details on site link.

Real Food Logic – Part Two

Further on in a series on food by Rebecca Gerendasy,

director of CookingUpAStory films, consider the views

discussed in Part Two of a dialogue and talk by

Michael Pollan about his latest book on real food and the logic of

it, as opposed to some modern scientific substitutes. 

“In Defense of Food” is valuable reading for anyone

interested in keeping vital foods “whole”.   It’s linked

in the sidebar, on Amazon.  This is a fascinating discussion,

as good nutrition concerns everyone, offering

some real food logic.

Co-operative Community Idea

More urban egg co-op sustainability smarts on a community basis

by film maker, Rebecca Gerendasy, from the amazing

“CookingUpAStory” food films.  Watch and see how the

community can make things happen, on a

co-operative basis, when people get together, and

everyone involved benefits with fresh eggs every day.

Earth Hour – March 29th 2008


Dust off the candles for Earth Hour Day, March 29th, 2008

around the globe at 8pm your local time, for one full hour

without the conventional lights on.  What started as an

initiative in Sydney, Australia, in 2007, to draw attention

to global warming, has become a global event.  Extensive

activity around this event is taking place in the USA,

and many other cities around the world.
