    Absolutely loved this article titled Losing the Farm about the history of agriculture in the midwest, mixed with some Aldo Leopold and a frame story about the author's family farm.  https://beltmag.com/losing-the-farm/

    I don't look at my computer every day so I don't log in.  I try to not spend a lot of time on electronics and try to be a doer or maker more.  This is part of my contribution to the environment.  I would like this as a goal to check.   Thank you.

    The actions I chose were meaningful to me on a personal level, as well attainable.  A few I had to stretch for and do a little research; growth happens when we push outside our comfort zone, right?!

    I joined the challenge to feel like part of a larger community working toward change.

    I love reading about indigenous people restoring ancient techniques.  The article about the Peruvian villages cleaning out and fixing wells and canals that restored wetlands for their rotational grazing was minding-blowing

    How important is heating food?  Other than cooking meat maybe we need to think more about eating raw foods.  There is a whole movement for the benefits of raw foods.  And further, eating less or no meat will reduce fuel costs on top of the benefits of less meat production.
