Great Band from Russia

Otava Yo. They have lots of YouTube videos. 

My favorite dance band at the moment. 

We could use some big dance shindigs.

Conversation with Jean-Jacques Schul on the usefulness of Artemisia annua against malaria and its potential against COVID-19. This guy really knows the research on Artemisia annua. He is urging the governments of the world to speedily do research on Artemisia annua to verify its potential to treat Covid-19. Jean points out many ways it is very plausible that it would work as a tea and that it can’t be ruled out at this time.  I highly recommend this plant works against malaria, many other viruses, other coronaviruses, and some cancers.  As Jean says “Artemisia annua is a jewel of China’s pharmacopeia.” This plant may also be of use in future pandemics.  Keep some in your garden.  You can grow it in the cold temperate zone to the equator.

Video: 25 Year Agroforestry Planting with Michael Pilarski

Tour a 2-acre, 25-year old medicinal agroforestry system planted by Michael Pilarski.  It has been gradually abandoned over the least 5 years and has grown into a dense forest with overstory, understory, snags, large woody debris and a large carbon sequestration. The video talks about the restoration of this system and what we can learn from understory development. See earlier videos of this site here:
