1/9 - This is one of the biggest contradictions I’ve seen. @The_RHS, THE MOST INFLUENTIAL #gardening charity in the UK, whilst promoting Plants For Pollinators, are still endorsing “WEED”KILLERS! 😡 “Inspiring everyone to grow” (except the wildflowers) Don’t believe me?👇🧵
2/9 - Whilst not actively selling this product on their own website, it’s available via @jennychem_. What sickens me more is the detail in which various weed killers are described to eradicate different “weed” species, INCLUDING my favourite #wildflower Bird’s-foot trefoil! 😡
3/9 - Take Bird’s foot trefoil for example. It’s a larval food plant of the Common Blue, Green Hairstreak & Dingy Skipper butterflies and also Six-spot burnet moth. It also provides nectar for many bees and other insects, along with ALL the other plants listed in the next tweet.

In order for #nature to thrive, we need to create a mosaic of habitats nationwide and adopt this principal in our own #gardens. From woodland to scrub, #meadows to short grass and #ponds to wetlands. A variety of habitats is best for species diversity. 🧵
Even in a 50sqm garden, we can have most of the above mentioned habitats but on a smaller scale. Small trees such as Rowan, Crab Apple and Elder can work really well in small areas without getting too big or casting too much shade.
Moving down from this, we can add shrubs such as Hazel, Alder Buckthorn, Guelder Rose, Dog rose, Wild Privet and Holly which will provide so many flowers for insects and nesting potential for birds in the spring. As well as larval food plants for moths and butterflies.

A thread on Gardens🌿🌻: a governance framework for truly decentralised and sovereign internet communities

Based on the @1HiveOrg model, Gardens provides a beautiful foundation for communities to coordinate around shared resources in a bottom-up fashion…
Gardens isn't just your average governance framework though

It's the culmination of years of research from @AragonProject , @block_science , and @commonsstack

Combined with many months of practical learnings from the 1Hive community
By combining 3 of the most important pieces of decentralised software ever written

-Conviction voting
-Aragon Agreements
-Celeste (a @BrightIDProject integrated Aragon Court)

It allows communities to fulfil the promise of effective on-chain governance, not tomorrow, but today

Most of the urban area in #Pompeii consisted in private households. Therefore, the city provides an excellent vantage point to learn more about Roman housing and its evolution over time. Image
The upper classes mainly lived in #domus, large houses sometimes covering an area of about 3,000 sq. m. The domus were usually based on the same main structure. The front door led into the #atrium, a large central hall open at the roof. Image
Around the atrium the other rooms of the house were located: the bedrooms (#cubicula), the servants’ quarters, the dining rooms (#triclinia) and living rooms. ImageImage

🔎 'Corporate concentration in the US #food system makes food more expensive and less accessible for many Americans' 💵🌽🇺🇸

🗞️ Excellent new piece in the @ConversationUS by @hendricksonm & IPES-Food's own Phil Howard 👇🏾

Quick thread! 🧵/1…
"We’ve closely followed #corporate consolidation of food production, processing and distribution in the U.S. over the past 40 years. In our view, this process is making #food less available or affordable for many Americans," say Hendrickson & Howard. /2
"Consolidation has placed key decisions about our nation’s #foodsystem in the hands of a few large companies, giving them outsized influence to #lobby policymakers, direct food and industry #research and influence #media coverage." /3
