"Regenerative gardening means practicing gardening in a holistic way that regenerates the soil, our bodies, our living environment, and our planet.”
says ShangwenChiu Kennedy, a landscape and urban designer who serves as Managing Director of the Inn at Moonlight Beach, the world’s first WELL-Certified Hotel (which has its own large biodynamic garden).
“It focuses on putting nutrients back into the soil, resulting in plants capturing and storing carbon from atmospheric CO2 in the soil while also improving soil health, crop yields, water resilience, and nutrient density. This results in more nutritious food for us."
Beekeeping (or apiculture) is the maintenance of bee colonies, commonly in man-made hives, by humans. Most such bees are honey bees in the genus Apis, but other honey-producing bees such as Melipona stingless bees are also kept. A beekeeper (or apiarist) keeps bees in order to collect their honey and other products that the hive produce (including beeswax, propolis, flower pollen, bee pollen, and royal jelly), to pollinate crops, or to produce bees for sale to other beekeepers.
A location where bees are kept is called an apiary or "bee yard".
Sustainable agriculture is farming in sustainable ways meeting society's present food and textile needs, without compromising the ability for current or future generations to meet their needs.
Agriculture has an enormous environmental footprint, playing a significant role in causing climate change, water scarcity, land degradation, deforestation and other processes.
