The Vertical Forest

At first glance it looked too fantastical to be real, but now the completion date for the world’s first vertical forest is drawing near. Located in Milan, Bosco Verticale is Boeri Studio’s answer to the question of how to make cities greener while supporting an ever denser urban population. Since Inhabitat first reported on the project in 2011, it has captured the imagination of many across the globe, all eager to see how the benefits of downtown city living can be enhanced within a vertical forest environment.

A vertical forest is expected to be completed this year in Milan. There are two tower apartment complexes which contain a total of 400 residential units. The facade of the buildings will be covered with 730 trees, 5,000 shrubs, and 11,000 perennial plants. It is expected to have the same ecological impact as 10,000 square meters of forest.Screen shot 2014-03-30 at 12.45.16 PM

Took a walk around the area and found a nice lit location fit for me to stretch out and feel the sun rays coming down on me. This spot looks secluded but im actually right behind a Arby’s early morning!

An intense back bend to start the day. Using my arms to squeeze all the air out of my stomach and deepen the stretch even further.

Book Select: A Healthy Foods And Spiritual Nutrition Handbook

51mVVUe4gcL._SY344_BO1,204,203,200_“This very thin book is loaded with lots of powerful information. It is very informative and touches on many topics. If you are a person who wants to change their eating habits, this book will put you on the right track. It also has lots of tasty recipes for you to prepare. You will not be disappointed with this purchase. I brought this book way back in the 90’s and let someone use it and it was never returned. It went out of print and was unable to get another until now. This is a book that should never go out of print.”  Customer Review

I have an original copy of this book  courtesy of my fathers’ book shelf so I think i’m going to begin studying some of the information within.
