An Awesome World Tour

Dallas Clayton is single-handedly changing kids’ lives! Not too long ago he wrote “An Awesome Book” about the importance of dreams. Then he started a foundation so that he could give away a copy of the book for each one he sold! He followed that up with his second book “An Awesome Book of Thanks”, and now he is touring the world!

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!
