Every year we rotate older laying hens out of our layer flock and frequently we have individuals who are interested purchasing these birds. This year we have primarily Americana hens, these are the ones that lay green eggs! They are 3 years old so they are not laying as much as when they were younger but they should be hardy and could produce enough to make it worth while for a family wanting to fill up a chicken tractor in the back yard. They would also make good stew birds. We are asking $5 each. Please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org or call Rebbecca at 254-799-5611 if you are interested in some of these birds. We will begin making stew ourselves in a couple of weeks so act fast.
All goat meat is from WHRI’s own grass-fed herd. It is also available ground and in sausage. All meat sales are made at the Education Building on the World Hunger Relief Inc. Farm located at 356 Spring Lake Road Waco, TX.

What comes to mind? Many of us will immediately see our shared history of indelible images that have captured American life, both good and bad. For every powerful image of success in America, there is often an equally devastating image of a struggle of an American. Our country has a long tradition of photojournalists who captured the striving and the trials and the sweet successes of American families and individuals.
From Jacob Riis, who introduced the real lives of low income families to a complacent elite in New York, to Dorothea Lange, who brought an entire country closer to the Great Depression, photographers can make us not just look but really see. This is what I’m asking you to do today. You know what your American Dream looks like. Now open your eyes and look around you. What does the American reality look like?
Will you share your American dream and an American reality with the country? The diversity of images will tell a powerful story about the nation we strive to be and the nation we are today. Moreover, the best images will be displayed at the OpportunityNation Summit in New York City this fall, and the best photographers will have the chance to win a trip to the Summit or a new iPad 2!

And, it’s all Fair Trade. That means artisans and producers got a fair price for their goods (one that covers the cost of production and guarantees a sustainable living); long-term contracts which provide real security; and, for many, support to gain the knowledge and skills they need to develop their businesses and sales.
Stop by the Village Store the next time you have a gift to buy or to browse for something to beautify your home. We carry a variety of items including coffee, kitchen wares, house wares, clothing, handmade artwork, bags, scarves, jewelry and soaps.
