Episode 8: The Harvest Feast November 5 2012

The Brownlie garden crew harvest their crop to create amazing dishes for their first-ever Harvest feast in honour of Harmony Day, an important multicultural event on the Brownlie Towers’ calendar. It’s a day to celebrate fresh produce, friendship and community and reflect on their success.

Urban Farming is taking the world by storm! This solves many of the different problems that we currently see in agriculture such as transportation, price hikes, non-organic and so on. Near the bottom of this description are large informational pdf files, near the top are networks and the stories that others are sharing.

Water Purification

Greywater is a manner of filtering certain types of wastewater, deemed to be safe, for non-contact use such as watering soil or refilling the toilet after flushes. These systems are built to minimize water usage by allowing some wastewater to be re-used for certain purposes. Laws in each area are specific as to what is allowed and not allowed so be sure to check with the local government. Here come the links!

Drinking Water Filtering Methods

This web outlines the technical, operating and managing aspects of home water filtering systems. It describes the types of contaminants that will be removed by the different types of filter systems These systems are plumbed-in with separate faucets and are ordinarily installed under the kitchen sink or in close proximity to provide convenient use for drinking and cooking, and are called point of use systems (POU).

This is Peanut the turtle, shortly after being found in Missouri in 1993. She was taken to to a zoo in St. Louis where the six-pack ring was removed.
It seems that she was trapped in the plastic ring as a young turtle and was unable to free herself. Subsequently her shell moulded itself to the plastic ring and she grew in the strange shape you see here.
Unfortunately the damage is permanent, but peanut is expected to live a long life and today she serves as a mascot for the fight against beach littering.

Please, always remember to clean up after yourself at the beach.
