Beamspun links for May 3rd: https://beamspun.exmosis.net/2020/05/beamspun-3-3rd-may-2020.html
For me, solarpunk is about valuing our ability to nurture, sustain, and renew. Here's a piece on the 'punk' in #solarpunk getting to the heart of that - https://solarpunkdruid.com/2020/04/27/the-punk-in-solarpunk/
• Toss a Coin to Your Witcher – Rock cover version by Violet Orlandi
• Plant hormones
• Complete map of Middle Earth (canon, but not made by Tolkein himself)
• Kvass – a traditional slavic drink made from fermented rye bread
• Fake leather made from kombucha cultures, which can be made into seamless clothing
