Alfred Reed Bishop and Doris William Butler

The picture above is the very tap root of Bishop's Homegrown/Face Of The Earth Seed. My grandparents shortly after moving to Pekin Indiana from Greensburg KY in 1947 where they purchased the farm that is now Bishop's Homegrown. This picture was taken in Pekin in front of the old co-op next to the old railroad depot, neither of which exist today.

Relevent political activism!

My friend Bill Drake of cultivatorshandbook.com passed this along to me in an e-mail this afternoon, thought I would share it here, hoping this possibility catches on:

Dear Friends – I apologize if this looks like a spam message but please believe me it is not.

This is the one solid plan I have come across for how those of us who consider ourselves hard working, tax paying, patriotic, honest and contributing citizens can actually do something effective about the current situation where wealthy tax cheats, big banks, big corporations and big government are hijacking our economy, impoverishing millions of us, and stealing our grandchildren’s future with apparent impunity.

This non-violent plan apparently began with 12 people over coffee, and seems to be going viral in the UK with actual, tangible results.

Please take a few minutes to read this and then consider what even just a few of us could do to make this happen in the US. What would the first step be? (I guess my first step is going to be to break down and get a twitter account.)

These protests are extremely effective, and because they're organised at short notice like flashmobs, they're extremely difficult to stifle. I wish you would follow suit over there; it's time ordinary people stopped being fooled into following agendas which only favour the very rich!
