Why the Alps are a haven for rare butterflies This is partly thanks to the varied landscape of the Alps, where many different natural ecological niches sit closely together. But human influence has also played a part. For centuries, farmers have used the rocky, nutrient-poor grasslands high up in the mountains to graze their animals or mow hay for the winter. In the process, they created grasslands rich in plants and butterflies. Such traditional, unfertilised Alpine meadows host more than three times as many plant species than intensively managed, fertilised ones, according to one study.

Millions lack access to running water. Is the solution hiding in plain sight? Most homes in Tucson [Arizona] use between 30 and 50 percent of their water outdoors, [Brad] Lancaster said. On many properties, he said, simply diverting storm water and greywater runoff to the right places, along with growing drought-tolerant native plants, can cut ​outdoor municipal water use to zero, all for “the price of a shovel.” (Monday March 27th, 2023 — Washington Post - Washington DC USA)

A frequently asked question about wine Our 2019 Pyramid Valley Central Otago Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand is produced with the following mindset: "We tend our estates according to the holistic principles of biodynamics, working with the energy of the cosmos and feeding the soils and ecosystem of the site to let nature work her wonders. “The beauty of biodynamics for us, is being in tune with each of our vineyards and their unique needs based on individual soil type, site aspect, ecosystem and local climate. In the cellar, our winemaking follows natural principles with the use of indigenous yeasts, natural fining and minimal, if any, filtration. Our ultimate goal is to guide our wines from the earth to the bottle, producing wines that truly breathe of their place." (Friday March 24th, 2023 — The Royal Gazette - Bermuda)
