If my partner and I wanted to farm but don't have much experience besides rooftop gardening and houseplants (plus a good amount of ambition and book knowledge), is there a farming network that connects people who are new to farming with those who have working farms (and patience... and housing)? ...and that is queer/BIPOC-friendly and supports regenerative farming and land-back initiatives? Feel free to boost :-)

HEY AMERICANS, big reminder: you can text "USPS" to 50409 to sign a big-ass petition to save the United States Postal Service that'll get sent to your congress reps. inexpensive, reliable mail service is crucial to everyone in the American comics industry, as well as everyone else in the creative and small business fields. signing only takes a minute and doesn't require any info more personal than your street address and email. DO IT!

"Nature. Essence. Innate. The way things are. This kind of rhetoric should
raise suspicions in any context. It should especially raise suspicion here. If
there is any place where nature has no rule, it is in #cyberspace. If there is any
place that is constructed, cyberspace is it. Yet the rhetoric of “essence” hides
this constructedness. It misleads our intuitions in dangerous ways."

Glad to be here!
We're working on growing our client base. At the moment we're running an ad campaign with ResearchGate. I'd like to start a parallel campaign reaching out directly to academic departments—we should identify those departments with some kind of interest or commitment to worker coops or alternative economics?
