In the eyes of many people, the practices of forestry and farming are mutually exclusive, because in the modern world, agriculture involves open fields, straight rows, and machinery to grow crops, while forests are primarily reserved for timber and firewood harvesting. Farming the Woods invites a remarkably different perspective: that a healthy forest can be maintained while growing a wide range of food, medicinal, and other non-timber products. While this concept of “forest farming” may ...

Use Bats To Combat Your Yard’s Mosquito Population Cool! We totally did this! And we now have thousands of Small Brown Bats living in their box on our barn. It's so cool. And don't forget to put a small piece of wood at the bottom to catch any pups that fall out of the roost.
Use Bats To Combat Your Yard’s Mosquito Population | the average bat will eat around 600 bugs, including mosquitoes, per day (or night rather). With a simple Bat Conservatory you keep a few bats hanging around (bad pun alert!) your yard , and thus keeping the area bug population at a minimum. If you don’t mind the bats being around at night, then install this Bat Conservatory made from Western Red Cedar for around $55.
Bat box ~ bats can be an amazing form of organic pest control. A single little brown bat can catch and eat 1,200 mosquitoes sized insect in one hour, and a nursing mother can eat more than her own body weight, up to 4,500 insects in a single night! 1 But bats don’t stop at mosquitoes. Most bats are generalists, and will eat anything from moths to flies to beetles, including agricultural pests such as rootworm, cutworm, earworm and leafhoppers.
Bathouse. For bats; the silent mosquito killer, the adorable flying hamster, the legend.

How to start a traditional compost pile - from Fresh Food from Small Spaces: The Square-Inch Gardener’s Guide to Year-Round Growing, Fermenting, and Sprouting by R. J. Ruppenthal

compost pile in garden http://www.thedailygreen.com/green-homes/latest/organic-gardening-tips-460309#
Compost pile. Sounds gross, but my coworker has inspired me! We WILL have a veggie garden someday...now, to find the time/motivation to start it...
As I would live in a house with a huge garden I would put one of these home made compost bins outside to then use in my plants. Tips for making your own compost: http://www2.epa.gov/recycle/composting-home
Composting is an easy, inexpensive way to reduce your yard and kitchen waste, while keeping your garden filled with nutrient-rich soil. Keep your compost pile neat and trouble-free, by preventing these common problems before they arise.
All gardens benefit from compost -- and preferably you can make your own on site. Hey, it's free! Compost feeds plants, helps conserve water, cuts down on weeds, and keeps food and yard waste out of landfills (where it produces methane), instead turning garbage into "black gold." Spread compost around plants, mix with potting soil, use to bolster struggling plants…it's hard to use too much!

All gardens benefit from compost -- and preferably you can make your own on site. Hey, it's free! Compost feeds plants, helps conserve water, cuts down on weeds, and keeps food and yard waste out of landfills (where it produces methane), instead turning garbage into "black gold." Spread compost around plants, mix with potting soil, use to bolster struggling plants…it's hard to use too much! According to Country Living, the best compost forms from the right ratio of nitrogen- and carbon-rich organic waste, mixed with soil, water and air. It might sound like complicated chemistry, but don't worry too much if you don't have time to make perfect compost. Even a minimally tended pile will still yield decent results. 1. To get started, measure out a space at least three feet square. Your compost heap can be a simple pile or contained within a custom pen or bin (some can be rotated, to improve results). 2. Add alternating layers of carbon (or brown) material -- leaves and garden trimmings -- and nitrogen (or green) material -- such as kitchen scraps and manure, with a thin layer of soil in between. 3. Top off the pile with four to six inches of soil. Turn the pile as new layers are added and water to keep (barely) moist, in order to foster microbe action. You should get good compost in as little as two months (longer if it's cold). 4. A properly maintained compost pile shouldn't smell. But if it does add more dry carbon material (leaves, straw, or sawdust) and turn it more frequently. 5. Even if you live in a city, you can do some composting under your counter with a tidy worm kit, or partner with a community garden. - GoodHousekeeping.com

Coldframes – A Carbon Footprint Eraser | By: John R. Garnet October 14, 2010 | What is a Cold Frame? #GreenBlizzard
Gardening Tips from Eliot Coleman: How to Start Seedlings in a Cold Frame - Chelsea Green : Chelsea Green
The trees are bare and the ground is cold, hard, and forbidding in New England. If you’re an amateur gardener who wants to grow his own food, it can be a little intimidating. But if you’re feeling those wintertime gardenless blues, there are a couple of things you can do about it. There are plenty …
Building a cold frame: A cold frame can be any width that the lights will cover and any length or height. Traditional home garden cold frames measure 4 to 6 feet front to back and are 8 to 12 feet long. They are laid out with the long dimension running east to west. The frame should be just tall enough to clear the crops you plan to grow. In the standard design, the back wall is 12 inches high and the front wall 8 inches high, so that there is a slight slope to the south.
