It's National CSA Week, the most popular time of year for fans of local food to join a CSA, support a local farm, and begin the wait for all that great local produce. Rambling Roots Farm and Z Food Farm both still have spots available to join their CSAs, and learn more about Tooth of Lion's herbal apothecary CSA and their flower CSA. So many ways to support local farms!

What can you learn from the brain of a genius?

    Who Stole Einstein's Brain?
    Einstein's brain has been on a bit of a journey, and most people aren't aware of it. There's a lot of debate as to whether or not the late, famed intellect had a unique brain structure, but few would argue that the story that began following his demise is anything other than a cloak-and-dagger thriller.
