Next Thursday, Right to Know Minnesota will head to the State Capital in an attempt to convince legislators to label products containing GMOs, or genetically modified organisms. The group will meet at Christ Lutheran Church across from the State Capitol in St. Paul at 1 p.m., where participants will meet, eat non-GMO treats, and learn how to talk to state legislators. After that, they'll head to the State Capital and each participant will meet the respective House and Senate representatives from their area.

Right to Know is an organization dedicated to the establishment of GMO mandatory labeling in the state of Minnesota.
"This is a total, 100% volunteer group. There's no paid staff [and we] don't get reimbursed for anything," says Jody Hencier of Right to Know.

We know it's hard to believe (especially on days like today when we seem doomed to spend eternity inside of a snow globe), but spring is just a few snow emergencies away. That means the sun will soon shine, birds will serve as unwelcome alarm clocks, and gardeners everywhere will be on their hands and knees, digging up the earth. If you're tired of thinking about the three feet of snow you have to trudge through every morning, consider planning for spring gardening early at this weekend's seed swap sponsored by Seed Savers Exchange and Permaculture Research Institute for Cold Climate.
Come Super Bowl Sunday, lots of folks will be sitting down on their couches, elbow-deep in wings, nachos, and football-shaped party food. While it's fun to scream at the tv and guzzle some brewskis in the comfort of your own home, there's something to be said about watching the big game in a bar with people rooting for both teams.
First on the list, you don't have to clean up. Second, football is about community, and what better way to express it than cheering your team on with some new friends? Last, even if football isn't your thing, you can still get your drink on with this game we created for even the least sports-inclined people.
Without further ado, here are some places where you can watch the Seahawks and the Broncos battle for glory this Sunday, February 2, without worrying about the post-game day mess at your pad. (Remember, the official kickoff is at 5:30 p.m. CST on Fox, but there are plenty of places to kick off your game day festivities before that.)More »
