The Plan for the at ChillerSpace, Part 1

I want this garden to be a refuge for species, by reintroducing more domestic plants that are endangered and/or that are food sources for endangered animals.

I'll start with that are nectar sources for pollinators, especially and .

I found a list of butterflies that are highly endangered and protected with priority in (it's in German, but there is a list of Latin names):

wien.gv.at/umweltschutz/naturs

Next I'll research which domestic plants these species like the most as nectar sources and what their caterpillars eat.

I suspect the best way to get more of the plants I want is to stop watering an mowing (parts of) the lawn.

ChillerSpace is a housing project in the making in . The plan of the project is for like-minded people to live and work together towards a better future.

We want to actively combat:



and other evil

We do that by following these principles among others:

Just a reminder that 2020 is the UN's International Year of Plant Health. This year is all about raising awareness on how the health of plants can help people affected by hunger and poverty. Healthy wild plants are also vital to preserving the environment and biodiversity of both plants and animals.

Earth is a garden, and all of us are intimately connected with it. Try to keep this thought in your mind this year.

Hello. This is my new Mastodon account for posting images. I post as @sohkamyung but due to issues with images (not that instance's fault), I've set up another account here to post my images instead.

For my first image post, here's a Tailed Jay (Graphium agamemnon) spotted at the garden area of Pasir Ris Park, Singapore, on 11 Jan 2020.

@puffinus_puffinus I propose a sunbeam.city tree planting initiative where everyone aims to plant at least 5 trees each year!

My local grocery store sells quite a lot of African foods. One of the things they sometimes sell is baobab fruit. So I bought some!

48 STUNDEN SCHWEIGEN FÜR AUSTRALIEN

Heute um 12:00 wird sich ein Klimaaktivist zu der Pestsäule in Wien setzen und dort 48 Stunden schweigen und nichts essen um auf die Situation in Australien aufmerksam machen.
Ich werde diese Zeit zumindest im Fediverse schweigen.

48 HOURS SILENCE FOR AUSTRALIA

At 12:00 local time a climate activist will sit down at the plague column in Vienna and won't eat or speak for 48 hours to call attention to the situation in Australia. I'll be silent here too.

The EnBee

Because scientists may be able to identify an animal's sex, but not their gender identity!

A Striped Pearly-banded-Nomia Bee (Nomia strigata) spotted at Sungei Buloh Wetland Reserve Visitors' Centre. It was perched on a blade and slowly blowing out and in some liquid. I think this is what bees do when they need to concentrate the liquid by letting the water evaporate from the drop.

#Compost is not that hard and composting to keep valuable plant nutrients out of landfills is important. I am still bleeping astonished that the company that owns this (and at least 7+ other old high-rent apartment buildings in Portland) is so fucking (whoops, forgot the bleeps on this one) stupid and ignorant.

As the nation becomes more and more suffocated by the greedy and #EvilLandlords, sometimes you've gotta be brave and tell it like it is... even if you're just a tenant.

We moved them off the path do they wouldn't get squished

A Pea Blue (Lampides boeticus) butterfly, spotted at Coney Island, Singapore, on 6 Dec 2019. I think this one is a female: while I was taking photos, another Pea Blue (a male, I believe) landed beside her and proceeded to mate with her.

The Pea Blue is widespread and can be found in Europe, Africa, Asia and Australia.
