A great addition to your garden or back yard. - Bee watering station. 
Bees need water just like we do but often times drown in open water. To make a bee watering station you can either do what is shown in the photo above and fill the bowl of a dog/cat watering jug with stones or you can fill a small dish with marbles and add water to that. That way the bees have something to land on!

First post to get this many notes, and I’m so glad it’s this one. ^_^

No fuck bees kill them all

Kill all bees huh? Bees are responsible for pollinating around 80% of agriculture. Bees die, you die. Do research and get over your fears.

bees are so important save the bees

The Birch Farmhouse Cottage 
The Birch is a downsized farmhouse well suited for a small, cost-effective rural or urban homestead.
Why do you give plans away for free?
I genuinely want to promote long-term housing that is 
modest
affordable (for its location)
aesthetically pleasing
utilitarian
energy-efficient
built to last with high quality materials
as non-toxic as possible
united with place
simple to construct
I actively create and share plans for houses I’d like to see being built in my own neighborhood. Everyone is welcome to download and use these plans free of charge - owners, builders, and dreamers alike.

Teen scientist harnesses sun power to help Navajo community
New Mexico teen Raquel Redshirt uses everyday materials and the sun to build solar ovens, fulfilling a Navajo community need and winning an award at the Intel ISEF competition.
Growing up on New Mexico’s Navajo Nation, Raquel Redshirt was well aware of the needs of her community. Many of her impoverished neighbors lacked basics such as electricity, as well as stoves and ovens to cook food.
Though resources in the high desert are limited, Raquel realized one was inexhaustible: the sun. “That’s where I got the idea of building a solar oven,” the teen says.
She researched solar ovens and found that most incorporate mirrors or other expensive materials. Raquel wanted to create a design that anyone could easily afford and replicate, using readily available materials.

Normalize fat women’s bodies. Normalize public breastfeeding. Normalize home births and midwives and reproductive autonomy. Normalize body hair on women.
Reject the notion that women are to be regulated and controlled and pressured to conform to societal standards.
