Since the earliest of times, people have valued the healing qualities of gardens. Once, those lush sanctuaries with waterworks, rare flowers and songbirds were available only to the richest. Romantic poets of the 19th century felt a deep attachment to nature and believed that gardens are the place of creativity – only there can a human be completely free. Many healthcare centers today maintain green spaces where patients can recuperate and relieve the stress of therapy. For a home gardener, a healing garden doesn’t heal only the soul by bringing joy, peace, and balance, but also provides a great form of exercise through digging, planting, weeding and decorating. Here are some simple tips you can try.

Want to go vegan but simply love and crave meat too much to give it up? How many times have you heard that many of the World’s issues can be solved with bacon? Not sure how or why people say that, but they do… because bacon.
Yet what if there was another way? A way we could still enjoy the flavors and textures of meat without having to actually kill any animals or harm the environment? Sounds too good to be true.
Yet that is exactly the mission folks behind the company SuperMeat and Beyond Meat hope to achieve.
Organic eating is the best option for our health and well-being, especially in this fast polluting environment. We are well aware of this fact. The only downside is that organic products are expensive and purchasing them for regular intake isn’t in everyone’s budget. Therefore, the best remedy is to plant an organic kitchen garden in your own backyard.
Important aspects to be considered while creating an organic kitchen in the backyard…
If your home is in the woods, there are no second thoughts that you live in heaven. Have you ever heard about ‘landscaping’? It is the art of creating your surroundings in such a way that aggrandizes the beauty of it.
Eco-friendly is not just a fancy term your weird painter/photographer friend uses while sipping organic juice, no. Taking care of nature and the environment has become a very important matter in today’s world of global warming and increasingly diminishing natural resources.
If you are not eco-mindful by now, it’s time to board the eco train, because if humans don’t take matters into their own hands in the struggle to save mother Earth, who will? What kind of Earth will we be leaving to our children?
One of the more pressing matters of environmental issues is energy consumption, which is at an all-time high.
Here is how you can help nurture our Earth by implementing small changes into your home that will not only help the environment but are also a healthier option for you and your family.
Bees are crucial to the survival of the human race. Via their impressive ability to pollinate and produce honey, they provide a priceless service in helping us produce enough crops to feed our growing population. Many if not most of the food products we consume contain a vegetable source that the bees helped pollinate (not including honey). And what do they get in return? Squashed because we’re afraid of them and their stingers, or we destroy their homes because they’re too close to ours.
Worse yet… plants and other crops get sprayed with dangerous chemicals toxic to bees, killing them off in droves, resulting in colony collapse. These chemicals really aren’t too great for humans either, yet we continue to use them rather than organic farming methods to meet the ever-increasing demands of consumerism.
In 2017, humanity will become even more aware of the climate change and the importance of biodiversity, conservation, and environmentalism in general. Although many people think that the new POTUS will put the most powerful country in the world on a completely different track, the expert community that has been pointing out the highly visible and measurable consequences of climate change are simply too strong to be ignored.
New environmentalist trends are being defined by the scientific research, business, and political decisions. In 2016 we’ve seen the eighth annual Horizon Scan of Emerging Issues for Global Conservation and Biological Diversity, which summarized the most important environmental risks and opportunities for the next year. In this article, we’ll use the conclusions from this conference as a framework to determine ten green trends that science and the corporate community will need to deal with in 2017.
