Ask me anything   Bio   Our Baby Registry    

Oh, Hello! I'm Chelsea. I mostly post photos of my son/my self/our day, but have a weakness for reblogging: nature, gardening, tea & coffee, bees, science, environmentalism, Dawkins, Attenborough, Tolkien, Star Wars, Arrested Development, 80's/90's anime, vegetarianism, or whatever else (who am I kidding I don't have a theme ugh). You can learn more about our family in the "bio" section

HERE’S JUST HOW MUCH IT PAYS TO BE CONVENTIONALLY ATTRACTIVE

We’ve come to expect impossible, even improbable standards of beauty to populate our magazines and our television shows. It’s another thing entirely to find they’ve invaded our workplace.

Watch Vox’s full video to see the many other ways these unrealistic beauty standards effect where we work.

It’s not always easy to stick to our goals, but according to THIS STUDY, a bit of time spent in nature can:1) help you focus 2) Allow you to regain some of the self control you may have lost over time In fact, this series of studies has found that environmental intervention not only  improves our ability to self-regulate but complete excutive-functioning performance. Whether you’re looking to up your motivation to stick to your new years resolution, or just trying to find the focus to get some work done,  sometime in the natural world can help you meet your goals.

Cool Food Thing: This infographic was designed by Stephen’s Planning, to illustrate different sustainable methods in different kinds of development. As you can see, there are ways that every kind of community can get involved in promoting a sustainable food system. In addition, this graphic shows that a balance of rural and urban communities can be sustained in harmony to promote local food and food sustainability.
1. Silviculture/forestry: working to preserve forests my managing forest systems like controlling, growth, soil erosion and quality, and various other methods. 
2. Aquaculture/fishery: cultivating and harvesting marine organisms in a controlled envrionment
3. Agriculture/farm/ranch: traditional forms of harvesting crops or raising livestock
4. Viticulture/vineyard: managing vineyards such as controlling pests, fertilizing, watering and maintaining
5. Organic farming: has restrictions on pesticide use, farming practices and overall has principles of sustainability. For more information on organics click here
6. Agri-tourism/farm stay: usually increases awareness about farming practices by encouraging the community to visit or stay at the farm. 
7. Farm stand: a location where farmers sell their own produce
8. Boutique farm: farms that offer other services like bed and breakfasts or unique and special products 
9. Backyard animals: owning your own sources of livestock, like a goat or a chicken coop 
10. Raised garden bed: a technique of home gardening where you essentially make a planter a few feet of the ground instead of planting directly into the ground. It can help keep pests away but more importantly keep crops away from not so ideal soil and keep them warmer. 
11. Edible landscape: instead of filling your garden with flowers, using vegetables and edible plants to landscape your yard. Ideas are also being thrown around implementing this to public areas like cities (having functional fruit trees instead or ornamental ones on side walks) but issues arise with who will take care of them. 
12. Greenhouse: a way of continuing agriculture despite natural weather occurrences. On one hand this keeps food available in winter, but they are heavy on energy use and cost a lot to maintain.
13. Farmer’s Markets: a central location where farmers in the area can sell their produce to the community 
14. Community garden: gardens that are open to all community members where everyone works to maintain the garden, along with having the benefits of taking home the produce grown
15. Civic/park garden: a similar concept as community gardens but sponsored by the city or governing body
16. Market/street festival: similar to a farmer’s market but extends beyond just the farming community to all merchants in a community. Festivals and markets allow the community to come together by exposer to individual projects. 
17. Community supported agriculture: members of a community purchase a share of a farms crop, and in return, receives a box of produce from that farm 
18. Roof top gardens: this concept is becoming more popular in urban settings. It adds a bit of green to a normally dull building but also reduces energy out put by the building by keeping it cool in the summer and warm in the winter.
19: Living building: primarily still a conceptual design (as current projects are very expensive) but a living building is something that exudes the utmost sustainable architecture there is. For more info click here
20. Vertical farm: Still highly conceptual, a vertical farm is implanting a farm into a skyscraper by having tiers of crops running all throughout the building. It’s a very interesting concept, especially with the huge increase in cities. For cool information click here
