Creating helpful things - be they digital or physical - gives me great satifaction. I have a small garden and I regularly build things for it.
It is a great way to balance the time I spend sitting at my desk. I enjoy involving my children and giving them the opportunity to make their own experiences with manual work and gardening.
Insects are an important part of gardening. I build beehomes and other samll installations to provide nesting opportnities. I believe that every effort in supporting wildlife matters. This is especially true in an uban context, where sources of nutrition are scarce and fragmented, and safe spaces for insects on the decline.
