an article from horticulture week that you have for us to read.
The Cookâ€™s Garden range of seeds from Johnsons might help the more adventurous gardeners and cooks add something special to their salads and stir-fries. Many varieties â€“ including Lambs Lettuce Favor, Pak Choi and Mizuna â€“ can be sown throughout the summer in order to provide a steady supply of unfamiliar vegetables that require little or no preparation before becoming part of an impressive meal.
A solar-powered boat is to be launched in on The Serpentine in Londonâ€™s Hyde Park early this summer. The concept of London-based, Swiss designer Cristoph Bieling, the 60-seater will cruise through the Royal Park, powered only by sunlight and is the first project of this nature to feature in the UK.
Mr Biehling has been designing solar boats for a decade with a similar boat appearing on the Neckar River, Heidelburg, Germany. The boat has been designed to introduce the people of London to the ways of sustainable energy methods, as Mr Biehling explains: â€œPeople in London need to understand that they are part of an environment and that sustainable energy does not necessarily mean â€˜awkwardâ€™. It can be beautiful. This boat does not run on diesel or electricity â€“ only sunlight â€“ and as a result, there is no noise and no pollution.â€?
Five years in the making, the primary use of the boat will be as a floating classroom to present issues of pollution and the environment in an enjoyable way where they can see the stark difference between noisy, dirty road traffic and the silent, clean boat. Indeed, Mr Biehling sees the boat more as a â€œlittle ambassador saying that â€˜environmentalâ€™ does not have to be uglyâ€?.
