How neat is this? You can help protect bees and maintain biodiversity by installing a "bee brick" in the side of your home, or any other building projects!

Some info via the seller:

* Solitary bees are responsible for a third of all food we eat because of the vital pollination they carry out.
* Solitary bees don’t produce honey or live in hives.
* Because solitary bees have no queen or honey to protect they are non aggressive, so safe around children and pets.
* Solitary bees face decline due to more intensive farming methods, disease, use of neonicotinoids and habitat loss.
* Bee bricks create habitat for solitary bees, inspired by the natural way they nest.

Word of the day: OOLER, which is an undersized potato.

Did you know that a cubic meter of the Sun produces about the same amount of energy as a cubic meter of compost? Composting programs to turn food waste into natural gas are increasingly popular throughout the Tri-State area, so if you're someone who participates in such a program, we thought you'd enjoy knowing what those old vegetable scraps of yours are accomplishing!

The science world is abuzz over news of this study: It's been discovered that there's a virtual "ocean" of life beneath our feet -- microorganisms deep beneath the earth's crust, way past the level at which we thought life was feasible. Via the Guardian:

<<The Earth is far more alive than previously thought, according to “deep life” studies that reveal a rich ecosystem beneath our feet that is almost twice the size of all the world’s oceans.

Despite extreme heat, no light, minuscule nutrition and intense pressure, scientists estimate this subterranean biosphere is teeming with between 15bn and 23bn tonnes of micro-organisms, hundreds of times the combined weight of every human on the planet.>>
