Wildlife Gardening and the Cycle of Life

Wildlife gardening emphasises concern for the shared environment. It involves more than just caring for your own garden patch. The by-products and waste it produces are an equally important consideration. Plantlife, like all forms of organic matter are part of a life-cycle that includes death and decay. But what becomes of it in the afterlife?

The term biogas is used to describe gas produced as a result of the breakdown of organic matter; whether as a result of processes in nature or in the sphere of human social activity. And the production of such gas has useful applications, involving both domestic and industrial consumption.

Huo Long Biogas is a Hong Kong-based company making active inroads in this area. For more information, visit their website.

Celebrating Earth Day

Today we celebrate Earth Day. In 2009 the United Nations designated this as International Mother Earth Day. This purpose of this event is to increase awareness and appreciation of the Earth's natural environment.

To mark this year's Earth Day, Google have commemorated it a Doodle.

We hope you enjoy.
