This plant exists in only one place, and there doesn't seem to be more than one individual (genetically speaking), because it cannot reproduce by seeds.

FYI, if you have any garlic cloves in your kitchen that are starting to sprout, just plant them. They're quite fast growing and the greens go well in all kinds of things! 💚

"Abandoned coal mines across the UK could be brought back to life as huge underground farms, according to academics.

"Advocates say subterranean farms could yield up to ten times as much as farms above ground.

"It could also breathe new life into many mines that have been closed since the decline of the UK coal industry in the late 1980s and offer a cheaper alternative to vertical farming in giant greenhouses."

Looking for solarpunk advice for a minor :) 

Hi! Since I just found out about the movement recently, I'm trying to find more ways to get involved. Any suggestions for a minor with a small budget?

So far I:
Bike more
Am starting a garden & compost pile
Recycle more
Am researching co-ops and such for college
Volunteer at a local urban farm

If you can help any, thank you so much!!!

one of the things I find myself doing a lot when I find myself in walmart, lowes, home depot etc is taking leaves that have fallen/broken off of succulents. they'd probably be thrown out, so no one will miss them, and if all goes well in two to three months you'll have a new plant. I call this plant piracy

TREE 

I LOVE TULIP TREES. They're one of the tallest trees native to the eastern US, so tall that you can make a canoe out of a single trunk. In spring, it blooms with orange-streaked yellow flowers that do indeed resemble tulips (it's a magnolia, so: very showy). It's a favored food source for the yellow-bellied sapsucker, a Good Bird. They grow very quickly, and their soft but strong wood is the best for building organs, plus actually my wedding ring is made of tulip wood, fun fact. #plants

Hi, I’m Kirsty, I’ve been on Mastodon since the big fleeing of Twitter in August and I’m now putting down some adventitious roots in sunbeam.city.

I’m a horticulture student in Glasgow, Scotland and my main area of interest is local food production but anything related to plants, soil, the environment, climate etc is my jam.

The usual caveats apply: nae TERFs, nae SWERFs, nae Nazis
