California 's Latest Weapon Against Climate Change Is Low-Tech Farm Soil California's Healthy Soils initiative is now in its third year, and it's designed to be part of the state's climate strategy. A state report finds that farms and forests could absorb as much as 20 percent of California's current level of emissions. "I think there's great potential for agriculture to play a really important role" in reaching the state's climate goals, says Kate Scow, professor of soil microbial ecology at the University of California, Davis.

How do you bring a forest back to life? In Matamorisca, they intervened in 17 barren hectares owned by the regional government and peppered them with their signature device: a biodegradable cardboard donut they call the cocoon which can hold 25 litres of water underground to aid a seedling’s first year. Around 16,000 oaks, ashes, walnuts, rowans, and whitebeams were planted in May 2018, and the company reports that 96% of them survived that year’s scorching summer without extra irrigation, a critical milestone for a young tree.

What Is Natural Wine? Biodynamic Wine 101: How It’s Made and How to Buy It Biodynamic wine uses what’s called bio-diverse farming principles, little human intervention into the winemaking process, and a distinct set of traditions and superstitions that aim to tell the story of the region using the wine itself as the medium. Similar to organic wine, biodynamic wine is better for the environment. (Monday March 11th, 2019 — AskMen - )

Regenerative Agriculture Finds Solid Backing as National Study, Decades of Success Show Ecological Renewal He had been farming conventionally using pesticides, herbicides and fertilisers, but the course taught him how to partner with nature instead of trying to control it. It has turned around his farm's capacity to deal with drought and he currently has plenty of water and grass for his livestock even as the drought in NSW intensifies. "We haven't fed for 15 years [because] we measure how much grass we have, we know how many animals we have to eat that grass and a very simple calculation gives us the amount of time that that grass is available before it runs out," Mr Arnott said.

When you’re farming a biodynamic vineyard all by yourself One of the week’s cool discoveries was in Edna Valley, a coastal region in San Luis Obispo, which I visited with winemaker Gina Hildebrand. Her brand-new label, launched in 2017, is called Lady of the Sunshine. Unlike most upstart California winemakers, who buy fruit from vineyards that they don’t farm, Hildebrand is now the caretaker of a small, 6.5-acre Edna Valley parcel, essentially a backyard vineyard, called Chene.

Classical Music and Movement Art of Eurythmy Blend Together In A Eurythmy Recital Eurythmy represents a performing arts experience unlike many others. Choreographed directly from the nuances of a musical piece, eurythmy is a movement art which interprets the music as a gesture in space through choreography of the elements of 'tone', 'speech' and 'silent'. This interactive discipline links art, poetry, language, and music with the movements found at the base of all art forms. (Tuesday February 26th, 2019 — Broadway World - New York, New York USA)

A Selection Of Top-quality "Biodynamic" Wine Producers, From Biodyvin Only a tiny fraction of the world’s wine producers are “biodynamic.” It’s an odd concept.

Most importantly, it is a group of producers that include some top quality wineries making very exciting wines. (Friday January 11th, 2019 — Forbes)

Siegal recently partnered with builder Bevyhouse and premium kitchen designer Tortoise to develop her own line of prefab ADU models and is also currently working on a modular design for the Sanderling Waldorf School in Carlsbad, California.
