The Weekly Harvest: Blogs Here and Yonder 2/1 yikes!
For me this week in the roundup of blogs, the issue that was out there was the vote and the case of small farmers versus Monsanto, to get up to the minute information, become more informed and to take action on a grass roots level.. FooddemocracyNow.org is the place to go and be on their mailing list.

Another great food activism site is Nourishlife.org
And as usual in the roundup I always check the positive daily posts of NourishingthePlanet.org
