Farm to School meets Worker's Rights in Wisconsin

It's hard to believe how Madison has transformed in last month.  Last week my daughter asked if she could have cooking classes with me if she had to be homeschooled.     This past weekend some farmers I feel honored to know because of their commitment to feeding Wisconsin's children, and many farmers I don't know, gathered in the freezing winds for a Tractorcade in support of Wisconsin worker's rights.  This is what democracy in Wisconsin looks like:
Over 50 tractors of all shapes and sizes from all over WI
"Whether we and our politicians know it or not, Nature is party to all our deals and decisions, and she has more votes, a longer memory, and a sterner sense of justice than we do."
Wendell Berry
