Food for Thought and Action: A Food Sovereignty Curriculum. Food for Thought and Action: A Food Sovereignty Curriculum is a remarkably useful popular education tool. It offers a practical way to strengthen a growing food sovereignty movement that includes consumers, farmers, environmentalists and faith communities. Building from the experiences of literally millions of grassroots activists world-wide, Food for Thought and Action challenges us to fix our broken food system.– Michael Pollan, Author of The Omnivore's Dilemma and The Botany of Desire It's been said that "you are what you eat.

I had to spay in order to protect the health of the animals and the breed standard and would like to recoup that cost of $80.00 each if possible. If you know anyone that needs a pet, a companion animal for horses or cattle, or brush and weed eaters please pass this on.

Update- I’ve placed Hanna as a companion animal for a llama and sheep! My girl Zoe, may she rest in peace. We’re making power today! Debbie Young.
