Me and the Girls ;)

Hello friends!

This is my Sustainability Curation Digest for the week of 02/04/18 - 08/04/18 on behalf of the Minnow Support Project!

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.

Every week I will be making a list of my favorite post from the week 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.

Unfortunately this week my curation will be a bit short, as I don't have as much time as I had before due to the birth of my lovely daughter.
As some of you can imagine, parenthood can take quite a bit from you, especially to a newborn baby....

So please forgive me, but there are no fancy intro's this time ... ;)

I hope I will be able to get back to my writing shape sooner then later...although you know... the rumor says I might not have free time again in the next 18 years...so one can never know ;)

Lets jump right in, here are my sustainability curation picks for this week:

(these posts are shown in random order; I liked all of them!)

Use plenty of bedding material in your worm farm by quochuy

In this informative post @quochuy talks about the importance of bedding material in your vermicomposting system and how it can make the difference between success and failure for all of us that just learning about this awesome composting technique.

In the post the author tells us all about the importance of the bedding material, but also leaves us with practical tips and a list of suitable materials that can be used to start your own Worm composting system.

Thanks @quochuy for such a useful and enriching post!

The next post is a bit on a different subject.

from THE FOOD FOREST IS STARTING TO HAVE SOME ACTION by hopfarmnc


THE FOOD FOREST IS STARTING TO HAVE SOME ACTION by hopfarmnc

I want to finish up this weekly post with some amazing images of a "Food Forest" of hopfarmnc.

I must admit all that variety of fresh strawberries, blueberries, apple trees and so much more, makes me a bit jealous :), as a city dweller myself I often miss having such wide spaces to grow all those tasty varieties of fruits.

Hope you enjoy his Food Forest as much as I did.

Thanks hopfarmnc, make sure to share with us your harvest once you get there, just don't forget to put an apple or two aside, for your fellow steemians ;)
