It takes roughly 6.3 pounds of edible grain to produce just one pound of meat. If we fed plant crops to our human population directly, we would have more than enough food to feed the world several times over!

BEAUcoup Abundant thanks

By Tina Valant-Siebelts

Ten years ago, a family acquired a Shetland Sheepdog pup from a breeder in Georgia. Too big for the show ring, he was the puppy promised to a girl on her twelfth birthday. Beau was more the size of a Collie than a Sheltie, well-mannered and calm. They grew up together and were strongly bonded.

It was the Worst of Times, it was the worst of times

By Jonna Shutowick. M.S. Ed.

If you look at the way the media has changed over time, it is easy to see why today we find ourselves in another revolutionary kind of time period.
