Support Your County Fair!
Maybe your own county fair is closer to home than this one, but the 82nd annual South Mountain Fair (Central Pennsylvania's Agriculture Showplace!) is coming up on August 18th to 21st. Admission is just three bucks, and kids under twelve get in free. Lots to see and do at this good old-fashioned fair, plus take a look at the premium book and see if you might have a winning entry -- you don't even need to live in the county to enter!

Real Food for Real People
Kitchen Gardeners International (KGI) is a new, nonprofit organization with the mission to "celebrate home-grown, home-cooked foods in their many international forms and to promote their role in a healthier, more sustainable, and more pleasurable food system." KGI offers a cute, animated presentation on this Real Food for Real People site as a public service announcement encouraging kids to eat "real food" as opposed to "fake food." Does it do the job? See what you think. (You need Quicktime to see it.)
