Poorly managed natural capital therefore becomes not only an ecological liability, but a social and economic liability too. Working against nature by overexploiting natural capital can be catastrophic not just in terms of biodiversity loss, but also catastrophic for humans as ecosystem productivity and resilience decline over time and some regions become more prone to extreme events such as floods and droughts. Ultimately, this makes it more difficult for human communities to sustain themselves, particularly in already stressed ecosystems, potentially leading to starvation, conflict over resource scarcity and displacement of populations.
I ordered her first book and cannot wait to get it!.Several months ago I came across a youtube about a young man who baked bread using natural yeast. He grew his by putting raisins in water and letting the yeast develop. It works well, but it takes me about three days to get the fermentation to develop. I tried maintaining the starter but it would become very sour and lose its leavening ability. So I resorted to simply using the entire batch of starter and restarting it when I knew I would need to bake bread in a few taste of the bread is very pleasant and it raises very well. While it does take a bit longer its not all that inconvenient and the health benefits outweigh the downside in my opinion. I am trying a new method by using plums from my orchard. They have that white film on them like grapes do and I hope it works. I just started it last night so I will not know for a few days yet
