Helen Nodding's
Moss Gaffiti Recipe

www.storiesfromspace.co.uk

(enough to create several small pieces or 1 large piece of graffiti)

________________________________________________

1 can of beer  (others use yogurt or buttermilk)
1/2 teaspoon sugar
Several clumps garden moss

You will also need a plastic container (with lid),
a blender and a paintbrush
_________________________________________________

To begin the recipe, first of all gather together several clumps of moss (moss can usually be found in moist, shady places) and crumble them into a blender. Then add the beer and sugar and blend just long enough to create a smooth, creamy consistency. Now pour the mixture into a plastic container.

Find a suitable damp and shady wall on to which you can apply your moss milkshake. Paint your chosen design onto the wall (either free-hand or using a stencil). If possible try to return to the area over the following weeks to ensure that the mixture is kept moist. Soon the bits of blended moss should begin to re-couperate into a whole rooted plant – maintaining your chosen design before eventually colonising the whole area. www.storiesfromspace.co.uk

Duplicate of Organic vegetables start out as seed...
 
For the past year there has been an uproar in the vegetable seed business as Monsanto has purchased Seminis (a seed conglomerate that has 40% of the U.S. vegetable seed market) and De Ruiter Seeds. Monsanto is now in the vegetable seed business for the first time and it's in big time. 55 percent of store bought lettuce, 75 percent of U.S. tomatoes, and 85 percent of peppers now originate through Monsanto's fingers. If you wish to steer clear of purchasing Monsanto seed- you need to do a bit of homework, as even reputable seed companies that have signed the Safe Seed Pledge, are still selling Seminis (now Monsanto) seed. Buying seed from a seed exchange, buying open-pollinated and organic are safe ways to avoid Monsanto seed.
Four times the size of an unfertilized tomato.
 
A study out of Finland has found that plants fertilized with urine performed four times as well as non-fertilized plants and just as well as plants given mineral fertilizer. Urine is a excellent source of nitrogen, phosphorous, potassium and trace elements. A family of four creates enough urine to fertilize a third of an acre, year round.
