The purpose of our group is to connect the health conscious family with our local organic ranchers and farmers and establish a relationship with each other. To support local ranchers and farmers who grow their veggies, chickens, and beef organically without pesticides, hormones, steroids, and antibiotics. To visit their farms as a group (kids welcome too) and learn about their products, and how much healthier they are for us and our families. (Watch the movie: Food Inc). To learn how they manage their gardens, beef cattle operations, egg layers, and dairies. Buying organic food locally is a very important and crucial thing for us all to do, and let's connect with each other and the farmer's and ranchers around us. Make sure that if you RSVP YES for a farm tour that you show up; if your plans change, be sure to change your RSVP from YES to NO 2 days before the farm tour so the farmer is not waiting for you to show up and making special arrangements for you.

Anyone else have too much STUFF? I have books on everything from gardening to rain harvesting to building an earthship! Last week I brought nontoxic cement sealer to the Fort Worth Recycling Center, trying to tell the staff of its value. I have posts on Craig's List but how many people are looking for nontoxic building and craft materials? http://dallas.craigslist.org/ndf/hsh/5664002396.html How about an event at no cost, maybe in a library, to exchange or resell (or even give away) everything from eco or nontoxic materials to extra plants to extra vitamins, maybe even clothing too. I could plan it for early August or maybe as early as next week if there's interest. Food could even be a side thing. Any interest? If so please comment what you want or are getting rid of!
