plant a row for the state house

An interesting discussion on national vs. local organizing strategies on the listserve this week.  Reinforced my feeling that state houses are where it's at and that led to more thoughts. 

Chicken Marengo is a special dish that my husband cooked for me on the night of our first date. Legend has it Napoleon dined on it at the eponymous battle, he who famously said that an army marches on its stomach.

Local supply lines will provide good support for the peace workers in capitals.
As it happens, local food is coming on strong in these days of looming food insecurity. A grist mill is opening up in Skowhegan. We are planning to grow some grain ourselves.
State houses are a low carbon plan also.

Plant an extra row to feed the state houses this summer!
