Work out our ecological footprint. Find out how not to use more than our fair share of the planet's resources!

Lets learn how to tread more lightly on the earth!

The key question facing the world is: how can we sustain a decent quality of life for all humanity without wrecking the planet. Right now we are definitely not doing this, the world's population is growing, and we're heading for disaster.

The average citizen of a developed or fast-developing country has an ‘ecological footprint’ so large that if everyone on the planet lived that way we’d need at least three planets to support them! But we only have one lovely planet Earth.

On average, for every human being on the planet, it is as if we had 1.7 planet Earths.

Community Bee Hives

Beekeeping is nothing more than keeping a colony of bees in a hive and harvesting the honey that they produce. Sounds simple right? Well, not really…

Honey bees are not (and cannot be) domesticated so you need to know a lot about how a colony how to start a beehive, manage it and be successful as a beekeeper. By gaining an understanding of how bees behave, you can learn to control them and they’ll produce all the honey that you want and more.

Grow Vegetables and Fish with Hydroponics and Aquaponics

Through the combination of aquaculture and hydroponics, aquaponics is a method for growing fish and plants together in a symbiotic system. Through a sustainable and cyclical system, the plants keep the water “clean” for the fish to grow, while the fish fertilize the plants. Both the fish life and plants are interdependent, and with the proper balance each will provide the nutrients and conditions for the other to grow and thrive.
