Weekend reading

I did it!

Greenhorns is an American organisation who promote, recruit and support new farmers. I think this is one of the best ideas of heard about in a long time. I wish we had something similar here. Maybe we have, do you know of anything? If I had a bit more time I would certainly be open to mentoring some young people who were setting up their own place near me. Check out their blog, it's loaded with excellent articles and essays.

Almost half of all mothers in two-parent families are back at work before their youngest child turns one, completing a social revolution than has seen the dividing line between home and career disappear in less than a generation.
