Vorarlberg is on of the states of Austria. It lays on the right bank of Rhine river, at the east end of the Lake of Constanz. It borders Germany on the north, Switzerland and Lichtenstein on the west and Tirol state on the east, separated by Arlberg massif.

== Hitchhiking in ==

=== From [[Germany]] ===

=== From [[North Tyrol]] ===

=== From [[Liechtenstein]] ===


== Hitchhiking out ==

=== Towards [[Innsbruck]] ===
There is quite a big petrol station Shell with a restaurant in [[Hohenems]]. It serves both directions. You can get to Hohenems by bus from [[Dornbirn]] (2 EUR) or train going between [[Bregenz]] and [[Feldkirch]] (4 EUR from Bregenz), or hitchhike. The petrol station is 2.2 km from the main train station, easy to get on foot.

Your best option is to hitchhike with a thumb right under the sign before the ramp where the cars split by direction. There is a sharp bend and all cars slow down.

A lot of buses stop because of the restaurant and that makes option of asking people in front of the restaurant very unpleasant.

=== To [[Germany]] ===
Since the above described way is both sided, hitchhiking from the same place will work too.

Apiary design for a forest garden

Should bees be kept in a Forest Garden?

==Should bees be kept in a Forest Garden?==
 
==Should bees be kept in a Forest Garden?==
Bees are very important for pollination, although there are many species which act as insect pollinators. It is not just honey bees that act as insect pollinators. Without successful pollination, some plants will not fruit or produce a poor yield (e.g. fruit trees). By combining beekeeping with forest gardening, pollination is more reliable and yields can be maximized. This is particularly a consideration for the future, as wild populations of bees continually reduce. With the rich diversity of species and the different flowering times that come with it, the forest garden habitat provides bees with a steady supply of nectar and pollen for most of the year. A forest garden might be so appealing to bees that foragers from surrounding wild bee colonies will frequently visit. It is even possible that wild bees will sooner or later establish themselves within a forest garden, as was the reported experience of Maddy and Tim Harland in their forest garden.

However, beekeeping has disadvantages, the need for intensive and regular management to prevent swarming foremost. It is potentially not ideal if a bee swarm settles in an inconvenient place within the forest garden. Bees can also be aggressive, and since most forest gardens tend to be fairly small, potentially with objecting neighbours, this could be a problem. "Following" is a behaviour of some bees where they follow and attack any human or animal who comes near their colony, sometimes for some distance. Colonies differ in their aggression levels, and this may not be an issue.

In order to test the app with all the motors, each motor needs to be hooked up to L298N drivers so it can be wired to the Arduino. I am unable to do it at this time since we do not have the parts. Next would be to find the correct values for the diameter reader. Need to test the values for different potential diameters. The potentiometers read voltages so each diameter will need to have a specific voltage to line up with the code. The communication between the app and the Arduino does work properly so that will not be a problem. The only other thing that will need to be debugged is how much the motors need to adjust when a change needs to be made. When loading the code onto the Arduino, the Tx and Rx pins must not be connected, otherwise the code will not load and it will throw an error message. This is because those pins receive information as well and the Arduino cannot handle both. Once the code has been loaded, plug back in the pins and the Bluetooth connection will work properly.

This semester I worked on components for the RecycleBot. The first thing that was done was writing code for the new diameter reader that was created. After the code was written and completed with tests, I moved onto an Android Application to run the RecycleBot for my senior project. For this Android Studio is being used to code and set up the application. The application will be hooked up to a Bluetooth module that will be hooked up to an Arduino. The Bluetooth module was hooked up and made sure it ran correctly. Page one of the application will be being able to turn on and off Bluetooth of the mobile device and connecting to the Bluetooth device. This page is mostly complete just working on spacing and colors. This page gave us some problems since we were just learning how to use Android Studio and had some errors throughout the process. We have now started working on page two which will hopefully have places to input numbers to run the RecycleBot. We also hope to have a running tally of previous inputs that can be saved into a preset option.

The diameter reader is currently set up for a potentiometer. It currently has a set value that the user would like the size of the filament to be. Once the machine starts running it takes the filament through the potentiometer, it outputs a voltage which is then converted to the correct size and from there the motor will either speed up or slow down based on the current size to make the filament bigger or smaller.

'''Android Studio Code -''' This code is set up to transmit information to a Bluetooth module from the application on an android device. This specific app will be able to connect to and from Bluetooth, the android device must be paired to the Bluetooth module before it is able to be used. The app can turn on and off the Bluetooth on the phone, and once the Bluetooth is on the app can show you all the paired devices and you can choose which one to connect to. After that is all done you can submit the information for the motors and diameters that are needed to run the RecycleBot. After all the information is entered in the app you can press start which will send the information to the Bluetooth module which will send to the Arduino to turn on the RecycleBot with the parameters that were set. It also has a stop button to completely stop the RecycleBot.

After that is all done you can submit the information for the motors and diameters that are needed to run the RecycleBot. After all the information is entered in the app you can press start which will send the information to the Bluetooth module which will send to the Arduino to turn on the RecycleBot with the parameters that were set. It also has a stop button to completely stop the RecycleBot.

In order to test the app with all the motors, each motor needs to be hooked up to L298N drivers so it can be wired to the Arduino. I am unable to do it at this time since we do not have the parts. Next would be to find the correct values for the diameter reader. Need to test the values for different potential diameters. The potentiometers read voltages so each diameter will need to have a specific voltage to line up with the code. The communication between the app and the Arduino does work properly so that will not be a problem. The only other thing that will need to be debugged is how much the motors need to adjust when a change needs to be made. When loading the code onto the Arduino, the Tx and Rx pins must not be connected, otherwise the code will not load and it will throw an error message. This is because those pins receive information as well and the Arduino cannot handle both. Once the code has been loaded, plug back in the pins and the Bluetooth connection will work properly.

Apiary design for a forest garden

Suggested design to ideally site an apiary within a forest garden

A walled enclosure is created, the quickest and cheapest method might be an [[earthbag building|earthbag]] wall, earth bermed on both sides to prevent degradation of the wall under sunlight, and to add growing space. To maximize the space available inside the enclosre, the internal berm is steep. To hold the earth in place until plant roots get established and stabilise the slope, scrap lengths of chain link fence can be laid flat on the berm surface. A fence is placed along the crest of the wall. This acts as a barrier to animals and small children before plants get established.

The best plants for this internal berm surface could be low maintenance, perennial and bee-friendly, while providing some potential use to humans, e.g. [[lavender]]. The best plants for the external berm surface would ideally have similar characteristics, but also be armed with thorns and be of a more substanctial size and density (while being deciduous to prevent too much winter shading). A combined hedge of species such as [[Gooseberry]], [[Ribes divaricatum|Worcesterberry]] or [[Hawthorn]] might be suitable.

Bees are very important for pollination, although there are many species which act as insect pollinators.

By combining beekeeping with forest gardening, pollination is more reliable and yields can be maximized. This is particularly a consideration for the future, as wild populations of bees continually reduce. With the rich diversity of species and the different flowering times that come with it, the forest garden habitat provides bees with a steady supply of nectar and pollen for most of the year.

Bees are very important for pollination, although there are many species which act as insect pollinators. It is not just honey bees that act as insect pollinators. Without successful pollination, some plants will not fruit or produce a poor yield (e.g. fruit trees).

It is potentially not ideal if a bee swarm settles in an inconvenient place within the forest garden. Bees can also be aggressive, and since most forest gardens tend to be fairly small, potentially with objecting neighbours, this could be a problem. "Following" is a behaviour of some bees where they follow and attack any human or animal who comes near their colony, sometimes for some distance. Colonies differ in their aggression levels, and this may not be an issue.
