I think it's time folks started getting back in touch with the land. I am all for helping others, but our government will not be able to continue to foot the bill. One can only imagine what things will be like when folks depending on food stamps alone are turned away. I wonder if… Continue

Yes, it was a wonderful evening.
Weather cut the numbers who could attend,
but the spirit was high and the music terrific.
The cause of restoring a secure regional food supply
is spreading, and more join us every day.

I am pretty sure that food freedom issues will soon
dominate many Missouri political races.
