A fun activity to do with children involves simple materials: toilet tissue, glue, and small vegetable seeds to make your own seed tape. And, as an added bonus, you won’t have to thin your plants later. Produced by the Department of Communications and Agricultural Education at Kansas State University.

a must read–vindicating and gets to the root cause–corporations using our government to do whatever they want regardless (or intentionally because) of is impact on us. Points out that individual choice is a myth.
Fast food is a multi-billion dollar industry that relies on a close
relationship with the government to ensure profits. While many outspoken
critics of the food justice movement advocate a free-market society based on
consumer choice, these arguments ignore the fact that, in many cases, true
freedom of choice is not available to many Americans. The narrowing of
choice results from the deals made between the government and the meat,
dairy, and fast food industries. This cooptation keeps fast food prices
artificially low. Multi-billion dollar advertising campaigns infiltrate schools
and poor neighborhoods, instilling mistaken beliefs about nutrition in
communities that lack the resources to counter the deception. Until more people
make these connections and understand the vulnerabilities faced by poor
African American and Latino communities, food oppression will continue
