We are pleased to announce an upcoming class on sourdough bread that will be taught for us at Mill Pond Bread (http://millpondbread.com) in Chelsea!  Many of you have discovered John’s wonderful sourdough rye at the Ann Arbor farmer’s market, and now you can learn from an expert baker how to make your own sourdough bread at home. John’s sourdough starter is over a hundred years old, and each person in the class will take home some of his starter and all the information needed to start making sourdough bread.

Date: Tuesday, February 3
Time: 6-10pm
Where: Mill Pond Bread bakery, 1534 Sugarloaf Lake Rd., Chelsea

Cost: $65 per person

A nourishing soup, and, of course, bread, will be provided for dinner.

Please RSVP to info@aawapf.org by Wednesday, January 28.

Payment must be received in advance of class. Class size limited to 10 people, but we will schedule another class if necessary to accommodate everyone.

Dear Ann Arbor WAPF friends,

Vote for raw milk (see http://www.realmilk.com/ for more information) and against NAIS (see http://libertyark.org/ and http://farmandranchfreedom.org/ for more information)! See the note below for instructions. This is an easy and possibly effective way to raise awareness about these two very important issues related to our access to healthy food.


Step 1: If you are not already signed up for the site, register at:

Step 2: Go to http://www.change.org/ideas/view/stop_nais to vote to stop NAIS.
Be sure to click the box labeled "vote!" to the left of "Protect Our Food Supply -- Stop NAIS!"    

Leaving a comment does not count as a vote.
After you vote, the "vote" box should change color and read "voted."  
If it doesn't, then wait a moment, shift your mouse slightly, and click again until your vote registers.

Step 3: Go to http://www.change.org/ideas/view/legalize_milk to vote for raw milk. 
Be sure to click the box labeled "vote!" to the left of "Legalize Milk."  
Leaving a comment does not count as a vote.

Step 4: Email all your friends, and ask them to vote also.

You can vote for up to 10 ideas.  
But remember that all of the ideas are competing against each other to be in the Top 10, 
and that only the Top 10 will be publicized at the National Press Club event.

One of the ideas currently in the Top 10 is Health Freedom, 
which covers a wide range of issues and briefly mentions both raw milk and microchipping.  
You can vote for it at http://www.change.org/ideas/view/health_freedom 

This is a very quick, easy way to help us raise awareness about raw milk and NAIS 
and potentially get significant new resources for this fight!  
Please go to http://www.change.org/ideas/view/stop_nais and http://www.change.org/ideas/view/legalize_milk to vote now!
