    Given the current situation with climate deniers throughout government and the EPA abandoning almost all of its efforts to protect the soil, air and water, it’s hard to decide whether to cry or get pissed off. But it is essential not to take it lying down. We need to resist through agro-ecological practices that support healthy communities and at marches and rallies. Think and act locally and globally.

    An activist friend who has been instrumental in organizing the community to restore five local creeks is getting a new knee next week. I told her, “Good; now you can once again kick butt with both legs.” It is important to remember H.D. Thoreau’s observation for inspiration: “What’s the point of having a home if you don’t have a decent planet to put it on?!”
