I created this blog as a resource for backwards beekeepers, urban farmers, composters, vermicomposters, observers of the backyard ecosystem, and those who want to practice landfill reduction, brown to green architecture, urban renewal, and photographing the beauty and abundance of nature. I am inspired by those I list as resources and I would encourage you to check them out even if they at first do not seem to relate to your areas of interest. We are all interconnected in this brave new world.
