Bloom's taxonomy

Bloom’s Taxonomy is a multi-tiered model of classifying thinking according to six cognitive levels of complexity. Throughout the years, the levels have often been depicted as a stairway, leading many teachers to encourage their students to “climb to a higher (level of) thought.” The lowest three levels are: knowledge, comprehension, and application. The highest three levels are: analysis, synthesis, and evaluation. “The taxonomy is hierarchical; [in that] each level is subsumed by the higher levels.

The beginning of the mistake is from growing meat for the king and wine for the church. All around, cow, cow, cow, grape, grape, grape. European and American agriculture started with grazing cows and growing grapes for the king and the church. They changed nature by doing this, especially on the hill slopes. Then soil erosion occurs. Only the 20% of the soil in the valleys remains healthy, and 80% of the land is depleted….”

The Apios Institute supports you to undertake ecological garden design, research, demonstration, and education. We support the mimicry of temperate deciduous forest ecosystems for the production of food, fuel, fiber, fodder, fertilizers, farmaceuticals, and fun.

“The Edible Forest Gardens wiki is a co-creative space where you can post photos and stories about perennial plants, poly-cultures  and forest gardens – and view posts from other edible forest gardeners from cold climates around the world. The wiki is growing quickly, and we’ll soon be adding more features to better-categorize your forest gardens and polycultures. We look forward to your contribution.”
