Hey all,

I hope this is the right area of the forums!

During my 9-5 I often have a few minutes during which I can do my own thing. One of the things I enjoy doing is reading BBC articles. I thought I'd share occasionally, whenever they're relevant to nature, permaculture, agriculture in general.

Feel free to share as well

So the first one is an article about researchers listening underground to the noises the creatures in that realm make:

And the second one! Which, unlike the title suggests, only really touches on the subject on how they might find it and more on their importance as a habitat. Particularly in urban environments.

This one is on farming I particularly like the idea of Wyke Farms. The whole idea of incorporating large scale environmentally beneficial systems in to large(r) business is something I'm always curious about.
