Hello fellow Steemians!
Here is my first Sustainability Curation Digest on behalf of the Minnow Support Project!
I’ve been slowly taking over it from the lovely @torico. The first digest was supposed to be published last week, but due to some semi-unexpected events - the birth of my lovely daughter - we had to delay it for one more week.
*Check out my introductions post for this job ;) *
The Minnow Support Project has multiple curators on various subjects. Each week we pick five undervalued posts and the authors behind them to highlight through minnowsupport-curation. This way MSP and PAL (Peace, Abundance, Liberty) can help promote new promising writers and content creators on Steemit, and in effect reward them for doing a superior job.
This week I am making my first attempt to feature some of the best content on the subject of sustainability, eco-friendly solutions, permaculture, recycling, alternative energy, recycling, homesteading...or anything else that might help us all live in a more sustainable, eco-friendly world.
I must admit this whole topic has a very great interest and importance to me. however I believe we are not currently in the best situation ecologically speaking. Life on planet Earth is wonderfully diverse. But the vast and beautiful biodiversity that ecology and evolution have concocted for so long has been disappearing at a worrying rate by our activities and human way of life.
We can probably argue about the pace and about the specific reasons, but we must all agree that its up to us to reverse the tide and hopefully be able to fix some of the issues that we are all facing through educating each other on how to live more sustainably.
So without further ado, here are my sustainability curation picks for this week:
(these posts are shown in random order; I liked all of them!)
The first pick is a great post by @teryani explains how we can avoid transplant shock, which most of us believe is seemingly "inevitable" and is not really harmful to the plant, yet teryani explains ho how it actually harmful indeed, can be avoided, and not a necessity at all.
By adhering to seven simple rules that are beautifully explained in this post, we can all learn how to avoid the mistakes most of us make, and our plants will thank us for this with lush foliage, beautiful blossoms, and juicy and tasty vegetables and fruits.
Thanks @teryani for such a useful and enriching post!
The next one up is MOTHER NATURES MEDICINE CABINET. A SHORT GUIDE TO WILD MEDICINAL PLANTS, a post by mudcat36
What do you do when have head aches? When your stomach signaling that something is wrong and sends you running to the toilet way too often? And what if you cut your hand while hiking some amazing trail and the first-aid kit is not within reach?
This useful post by @mudcat36 will give you practical knowledge of the medical benefits you can find in Mother Nature's medicine cabinet, and of course it is not asking for even one penny in return, just for us to care of it.
Thanks for the helpful information, I hope to hear more from you later!
The next one post for today was written by @thegiftofself, who teaches us about four amazing detoxifying herbs that we can easily grow at home and later use for detoxifying teas, tinctures or even balms and baths.
She also shows us how to dry and store our harvest for future use. Be sure to check her post out and add some of your own suggestions in the comments.
The next one on this list is a wonderful post by @qberryfarms.
One of the coolest things about plants in my opinion is their ability to develop into a whole new plant even from a small part like a stem, root, leaf or even a few cells.
This ability gives us the possibility to 'replicate' plants with the same genetics as the mother plant or to grow one plant that will produce for us over and over again.
Of course, the difficulty of re-growing varies from plant to plant and there are even plants that can not be grown in this way.
So in this post @qberryfarms shows us how she uses only a small small part of the bok choy to regrow it back for another run.
We will conclude this weeks curation with an inspirational post written by @quochuy. He gives us a tour of his versatile and nourishing garden that will awaken your taste buds and imagination.
If you too have a small area behind the house that is wasted on expensive and unexploited gardening, the transformation of the fertile garden of @quochuy is an excellent example of the nutritional, health and economic potential that a vegetable garden holds.
Reading warning: You may feel a strong need to get up immediately and go to the garden to get started. Remember, a good garden starts with intelligent planning.
Thanks to @quochuy for an inspiring post and a garden to look up to!
Below are a few interesting articles and exceptional posts I found that either do not fit in to a category or did not get first pick, yet I wanted to mention. Please check them out and give them some love where needed.
That's it for this week, I hope you enjoyed the posts picked for my first curation digest.
If you did like it, make sure to give us your vote, follow and perhaps even a resteem.
I want to send a special thanks to @torico, for believing in me 😋 and giving me the chance to take her place as a curator for MSP and for all the help with guiding me through the process and writing my first digest.
Tor you are awesome 😎 !
Hope to see you next week. Till then I leave you with this quote :)
