The PennEast Pipeline Made Me Do It: Why My Family and I Moved to Solar Energy 25.6.2016 Green on HuffingtonPost.com
Solar Panels, Old and New, Starview Hill Farm, Blairstown, New Jersey "There is one forecast of which you can already be sure: someday renewable energy will be the only way for people to satisfy their energy needs. Because of the physical, ecological and (therefore) social limits to nuclear and fossil energy use, ultimately nobody will be able to circumvent renewable energy as the solution, even if it turns out to be everybody's last remaining choice. The question keeping everyone in suspense, however, is whether we shall succeed in making this radical change of energy platforms happen early enough to spare the world irreversible ecological mutilation and political and economic catastrophe." Hermann Scheer, 1944-2010, former member of the German Parliament and General Chairman of the World Council for Renewable Energy Photovoltaics aka Solar Panels "Drill, baby, drill." First used by Maryland Lieutenant Governor Michael Steele at the 2008 Republican National Convention, later elected chairman of the ...

Colorado Master Gardeners: Drip your way to a healthy, water-wise garden 15.6.2016 Steamboat Pilot
Thinking about changing your garden from a traditional sprinkler system to drip? Dazed and confused in the irrigation aisle at the garden center? No budget for an irrigation contractor? Fear not, drip irrigation is easier than it looks. First, draw a plan of your yard. Use one corner of the lot or the house as your “control point,” measure the distance to all features from this point and transfer the measurements to paper, using ¼ inch to represent 1 foot in the field. Locate big things first — the house, other structures, trees, shrubs, driveway and walkways. Then locate the exterior faucets and water supply to any existing irrigation system. Measure and draw existing and planned flower and vegetable beds and turf areas. When complete, make a couple copies of the drawing for planning purposes. Next, group plants with similar water requirements into single zones and consider how often each plant grouping/zone needs water. Turf should be irrigated with traditional sprinklers on its own zone(s) — avoid ...

6 Nontoxic Ways to Keep Wasps Away 14.6.2016 Green on HuffingtonPost.com
by guest blogger Rebecca Straus, online assistant editor at Rodale's Organic Life Aside from different nesting preferences, the main difference between bees and wasps is that bees feed their larvae pollen, while wasps--a category that includes yellow jackets and hornets--nourish theirs with insects. That means that wasps are actually great to have around the garden because they control nearly all types of insect pests. According to National Geographic, some farmers are even using them to protect crops . And contrary to popular belief, wasps pollinate plants, too , just not to the same extent that bees do. Despite all the ways they can benefit your yard, wasps can still sting and give you an allergic reaction. And when they build a nest that's a little to close for comfort--under your porch roof or even sneak inside your home--it's time to do something. Before you turn to poisons to save your container garden , give these nontoxic, natural methods a go. Chances are they'll work just as well as that ...

Livewell Northwest Colorado: It takes a community 12.6.2016 Steamboat Pilot
Despite Steamboat’s epic winters, the more I talk with people in this community, the more I think spring is one of the most popular seasons in the Yampa Valley. People are energized and excited for the change in season and time of buds and blossoms, renewed hope and anticipation for summer. Spring is different for everyone — for some, it’s all about hitting the trails and exploring the woods; for others, it’s about planting seeds, gardening, enjoying flowers and soaking up the highly anticipated warmer weather. Our community’s energy, commitment and support for nonprofits continue to impress me as no other town I have lived in. The recent United Day of Caring linked us up with more than a dozen hard-working employees from Ski Corp., who joined us at Yampatika’s Environmental Learning Center at Legacy Ranch. Blankets of straw were pulled back from the gardens as they were prepared and planted with care. Some helped to revitalize a compost pile, while others cleared out large sections of weeds around ...
