Farm News this Week 

Let’s have a moment of silence and prayer for those who are suffering and have ever suffered from natural and human caused disasters. May we never forget that we are part of the web of life, inexorably in sisterhood with all other beings. May we understand that we have full responsibility for one another. Ashay!
