20 seconds to sign your name?

FOOD is, arguably, foundational to any cause you care about. Without healthy food/agriculture, in a couple of decades, we’ll be such a sickly species that we will not have the strength and stamina to take care of our children, animals and the earth.

Let’s make sure that the 2012 FARM BILL—a federal bill that resets agricultural policies every 5 years—invests in healthy food instead of handouts to corporate MEGA-FARMS.

The ever-impressive EWG (Environmental Working Group) has joined with Mario Batali, Michael Pollan and more than 70 of the nation’s food and health leaders to urge Congress to redirect a portion of crop insurance subsidies into vital investments in nutrition, healthy food and conservation programs. Add your voice and SIGN HERE.

EWG is also already preparing for when the farm bill comes up in the House of Representatives. Add your name to their letter to House members HERE.

the elephant whisperer

One of two processions of elephants that mysteriously showed up to mourn the death of Lawrence Anthony, known as the Elephant Whisperer.

For 12 hours, two herds of wild South African elephants slowly made their way through the Zululand bush until they reached the house of late author Lawrence Anthony, the conservationist who saved their lives. The formerly violent, rogue elephants, destined to be shot a few years ago as pests, were rescued and rehabilitated by Anthony.
