Here are more details:

A deluge of water harvesting techniques will be the bounty for participants at a weekend workshop at EcoVersity led by local columnist-landscaper, Nate Downey, on March 19 and 20. The focus on Saturday of “Practical Permaculture: Water on the Land” will be passive rainwater harvesting techniques including mulch, swales, gabions, deep-pipe irrigation, pumice wicks, and more. On Sunday, the group will explore gray water, black water, and cisterns. People can take either or both days.

Twelve years ago Nate Downey, whose monthly column on these same topics appears in the Santa Fe New Mexican’s “Real Estate Guide”, started Santa Fe Permaculture, an ecological landscape design and installation company. He has taught this class as a one-day workshop many times before but is looking forward this expanded, two-day version, which will blend hands-on activities and detailed descriptions with lively discussion and helpful handouts.

“With all this rain and snow this winter, it’s hard to know if people will be as interested in water harvesting this spring as they have been in the past,” Downey said. “But my guess is that the last few dry years will be remembered for a good long time regardless of any moisture we get in the short term,” he said.

EcoVersity, at 2639 Agua Fria St. near Maes Road, is a community education center offering land-based classes and workshops in all aspects of sustainability and natural living. It was founded in 1999 by the late, local activist Fiz Harwood, whose vision of creating a place from which to spread ecological wisdom continues to take root in the Santa Fe community. Call EcoVersity at 424-9797 or visit www.ecoversity.org for more information or to sign up for classes. The cost of Downey’s workshop is $54 for either of the days or $95 for the whole weekend.

Rhodiola Rosea is the latest natural remedy to join the arsenal of natural anxiety and stress (benefit of rhodiola) reducers.

Rhodiola Rosea, also known as Golden Root, is a native plant of arctic Siberia. For centuries it has been used by eastern European and Asian cultures for physical endurance, work productivity, longevity, resistance to high altitude sickness, and to treat fatigue, depression, anemia, impotence, gastrointestinal ailments, infections, and nervous system disorders.

The first recorded medicinal applications of rodia riza (renamed Rhodiola Rosea) was made by the Greek physician, Dioscorides, in 77 C.E. in 'De Materia Medica'. Rhodiola Rosea has been included in official Russian medicine since 1969.

Despite its long history, the Western world has only recently become aware of the health benefits of Rhodiola Rosea. It has come to the attention of many natural health practitioners because of studies which tested its affects on combating anxiety and stress.

Rhodiola Rosea is considered an adaptogen. This means it has an overall stabilizing effect on the body without disrupting other functions. Its ability to normalize hormones may be effective for treating depression and anxiety.

Studies of Rhodiola Rosea show that it stimulates neurotransmitters and enhances their effects on the brain. This includes the ability for the brain to process serotonin which helps the body to adapt to stress.

Since adaptogens improve the body's overall ability to handle stress, it has been studied to identify it's effects on biological, chemical and physical stress.

A study was performed to test the effects of Rhodiola Rosea when stress or benefit of rhodiola is caused by intense mental work (such as final exams). Such tests concluded that using Rhodiola Rosea improved the amount and quality of work, increasing mental clarity and reducing the effects of fatigue.

The effects of Rhodiola Rosea have also been tested on stress and anxiety from both physical and emotional sources. A report by the American Botanical Council states that "Most users find that it improves their mood, energy level, and mental clarity." They also report on a study that indicated Rhodiola Rosea could increase stress tolerance while at the same time protecting the brain and heart from the physical affects of stress.

This report included details of studies which highlight the overall health benefits of Rhodiola Rosea.

The generally recommended dose is 200-600mg/day. The active properties should be a minimum 0.8 percent salidroside and 3 percent rosavin.

It is important for consumers to know that Rhodiola may be sold using other species that do not share the properties of Rhodiola Rosea, benefit of rhodiola, or at ineffective strengths for treatment. Anyone with depression or anxiety should also check with a health professional when treating these symptoms.
