            Huw Richards (author of Veg in One Bed) is on a mission. He wants everyone to grow their own fruit and veg, and in Grow Food for Free, he proves that you don't need much money (or even your own garden) to do so. Can't afford a raised bed? Try repurposing an old wooden pallet. Don...'t have money to buy lots of different seeds? Look in your kitchen cupboards for food that you can plant. Don't have a garden? See if there is anyone in your local community that will let you grow veg in their garden. Whatever you are worried about, there will be a low-cost way of overcoming it. Discover the elements that make a good growing space, how to prepare your patch, make your own compost, get hold of your first seeds, and strategies to multiply the seeds you do have. Huw recommends his favourite low-maintenance, high-yield crops, providing key growing instructions and advice on fending off common pests and diseases. Discover how you can barter, borrow, repurpose, and propagate your way to a bountiful harvest of fruit and vegetables, joining the food-growing revolution without burdening your bank balance!

            A vital account of how sustainable farming can address urgent issues such as climate change and water scarcity, health and nutrition, land stewardship, renewables vs. the coal industry, as well as meaningful and fulfilling rural employment. And a call to arms. You know who is min...ding the farm - our consumption and behaviours affect how soil is managed and what it produces. We all are. The big-picture challenges created by mass-produced agriculture are discussed, the devastation of the drought and other climate variables are unpacked, the new crops introduced and the impacts on biodiversity are unravelled. And, Patrice poses solutions and alternatives to some of the most confronting issues challenging those working on the land, and eating off it. She believes we can, and already do, produce enough good food for all populations to be well-nourished. We just need to manage it better.Patrice has invested heavily in sustainable and organic methods on her farm and travelled the world exploring best practice. Here she provides a window into the pleasures of inhabiting the land, and promotes an alternative way of thinking about value in life, no matter where you live. Elmswood Farm is quintessential Hunter Valley, but Patrice uses it as the springboard to discuss national concerns with global ramifications.

            The New Rules of Green Marketing: Strategies, Tools, and Inspiration for Sustainable Branding
             

            The New Rules of Green Marketing: Strategies, Tools, and Inspiration for Sustainable Branding (EPUB ebook)

            By Ottman, Jacquelyn

            Green products have been around since the 1970s, but it's only in recent years that they've become ubiquitous. It's not because consumers suddenly prize sustainability above all. It's because savvy green marketers are no longer trying to "sell the earth"-instead they're promoting... the value their products provide: better health, superior performance, good taste, cost-effectiveness, or simply convenience. This central emphasis on primary benefits-the new rules-is critical to winning over the mainstream consumer. The New Rules of Green Marketing helps readers understand why value-based sustainability marketing has become a critical organizational capacity and how they themselves can adopt this approach. Drawing on the latest data from leading researchers and reflecting on learnings from her corporate clients and other pioneers-including GE, Nike, Method, Starbucks, Timberland, HP, NatureWorks, Procter & Gamble, Stonyfield Farm, and Wal-Mart-Ottman provides practical strategies, tools, and inspiration for building every aspect of a credible value-based green marketing strategy. She covers using a proactive approach to sustainability to spur innovation, developing products that are green throughout their life cycle, communicating credibly to avoid accusations of "greenwashing," teaming up with stakeholders to maximize outreach to consumers, taking advantage of social media, and much more. This book takes the best of Ottman's previous groundbreaking work it into the 21st century. Her new rules relegate traditional "green guilt" approaches to the recycling bin of history, break green products out of their niche and, ultimately do a far better job of advancing the triple bottom line of people, profits, and planet.

            A better way to combat biases and make smarter decisions from Rationally Speaking podcast host Julia Galef The human brain is designed to lie to us. Over the years, it has evolved to help us ignore mistakes we make, fueling our own irrational, biological instincts. But what if we... could train our minds to make more rational decisions, without the blow to our confidence? Julia Galef's insight is that most of us naturally have a 'soldier' mindset. We protect our beliefs aggressively and ignore any evidence that we might be wrong. She explains that to be more right more often, we need to approach ideas less like a soldier and more like a scout. A scout surveys the land, seeking accuracy and understanding to find all available information - good and bad - to gain a more truthful picture. While the soldier and the scout are both essential to an actual army, a scout mindset will benefit most of us more in decision-making. With fascinating stories ranging from Warren Buffett's investing strategies to subreddit threads and modern partisan politics, Galef explores why our brains deceive us and what we can do to change the way we think.

            Turn yourself into a superthinker and make the right decisions every time. You want to make better decisions. You want to be right more of the time-professionally and personally. However, being more right consistently is a hard problem because the world is such a complex, evolvin...g place. How do you navigate this complexity? Mental models are decision making tools that guide our perception of the world and our behaviour in it. They help us understand life, make decisions and solve problems. The best models help us make intelligent investments, develop ground-breaking technologies and even travel to outer space. - Note your frame of reference before debating someone with different political views. If you understand how your perspective contrasts with someone else's you can prevent the conversation from getting hostile. - Apply the sunk cost fallacy to the end of a doomed project. Just because you've put a lot of hours into it doesn't mean that you have to keep going. - Before blaming someone, consider Hanlon's Razor, 'Never attribute to malice that which is adequately explained by carelessness'. - Try to solve mysteries with Occam's Razor, 'Among competing hypotheses, the one with the fewest assumptions should be selected'. When you hear hoof beats, think of horses not zebras. Building on our knowledge of well-known models such as the Bandwagon Effect or Paradigm Shift and introducing us to the lesser known like the Eisenhower Matrix or the Boiling Frog Symbol, this indispensable book distills the most effective mental models into a single, digestible volume. It will make even the most complex models accessible and engaging to enable you to make better, more informed decisions in every part of your life.
