Green Living Features
Farmers are increasingly exploring inexpensive organic methods to return microbial diversity to the soil, which could help mitigate a warming planet by allowing soil to absorb more carbon.
Help For Home Gardeners
Nationwide, local extension agents offer soil testing and instruction in organic methods, making rain barrels, choosing native plants and a host of low-cost and no-cost services.
Crops in the City
Entrepreneurial innovators are tapping into new technologies and markets to grow fresh, healthy food within cities, turning so-called ‘mean streets’ into ‘green streets.’
Pre-Wired for the Future
Imagine, if you can, pedestrian- and transit-friendly cities with new homes pre-wired for electric vehicles and office buildings planned without parking spaces. It’s already happening.
Plants may not be raising an audible ruckus, but scientists are finding they communicate silently with each other through smells, hearing and underground networks.
