Booooooom is growing!

We are growing at an alarming rate! I am sorry about the site being down for a bit there, we had a little hiccup – the site had waaaaaaay (7 a’s) more hits than I thought we would get in our first week and we actually smashed the server that we are hosted on! We are working on moving it to the best server possible so it won’t happen again!

Good News of the Day: Army of 1,000 Ducks Used as Brilliant Pesticide Alternative

Ducks

South Africa’s Vergenoegd vineyard in Stellenbosch keeps a flock of over 1,000 Indian Runner ducks to help combat tiny white dune snails that would otherwise destroy the budding vines. The ducks’ upright and slender posture allow them to navigate the rows of plants, clearing up to a hectare a day.

While the cost of keeping all these ducks is significantly higher than standard pesticides, the duck army is so effective that the vineyard uses minimal chemicals and is recognized for its sustainability. See more images by London-born, Cape Town-based photographer Mike Hutchings and a video of the ducks working below!
