3. The May “Peaceable Table” Is Now Online

Contents include:

  • The dangers to the earth that concern environmental activists and the abuses of farmed animals by the factory-farm-slaughterhell system are closely linked. Why is it often hard for environmentalists and animal advocates to support each other? The Editor's Corner Essay "Saving the Earth, Saving the Earthlings" discusses the issue, and suggests hopeful possibilities.
  • According to a NewsNote, one of the ways animal agriculture devastates the earth is its destructive effects on biodiversity, as Gene Bauer's new book Living the Farm Sanctuary Life points out.
  • The Pioneer for May is the remarkable artist, photographer, and animal activist Sarah J. Eddy, 1851-1945.
  • Cooks and diners alike will be pleased with the Recipe for Broccoli Fritters, patties which can be either pan-fried or baked.
