Thanks for caring about AG progress and dietary diversity! We need help promoting land uses and animal caretaking practices that preserve our environment, crop diversity, maintain water quality, and reduce greenhouse gas emissions from livestock, and treat animals much better.
Promoting nutritionally valuable plant-based food innovations is the WAY TO GO for COMPREHENSIVE MANURE RUNOFF MITIGATION. So we organize PLEAS for simple stuff like making sure vegetarian recipe databases are heavily promoted to institutional food providers, with letters of support for Meatless Monday.
As a news service, we keep posts “hella-relevant” stories on #ag economy/policy/nutrition with a bent toward “signs of PROGRESS” that instill hope!

We can send you our toolkit blog of actions and help you perpetuate sustainable non-violent farming in your community.

We aim to boost existing sustainable foodie initiatives that stimulate demand for responsible land uses, reduce the environmental impact of confined animal feeding operations, and cheer on farms that respect biodiversity to a greater extent than the chemical intensive production of mono-cropped GMOs.
This blog site will host only our most important ongoing campaigns. Use our Hempseed for PROETIN and OMEGA FATS recipe sheets to propel nutritional wellbeing. And reference our work on Meatless Monday to inform a promotions strategy in your community. We highlight Cleveland, Ohio’s Resolution for Meatless Monday that we feel sets a precedent in its breadth of understanding of ag issues, thus raising awareness on the importance of eating less meat. We don’t post about anything fluffy, but do keep it upbeat and hopeful as much as possible.
Our ag system desperately needs to develop plant sectors that have nothing to do with CAFOs or mono-cropping GMOs. By lowering-meat and promoting more veggies and plant protein sources in settings such as schools, jails, and institutional cafeterias, we can take a responsible step that is a completely reasonable dietary adjustment in response to the resource stewardship decisions that need to be made. Animal Ag is not the safest or healthiest considering the non-theraputic use of antibiotics and other contaminants that travel on meat. We genuinely support all other groups and efforts working to shine light on industry practices so the the public can make informed food choices.
