COVID Anti-Vaxxers Make $$$ from Crowdfunding – Security Boulevard

by crypto journalist

Some anti-vaxxers make tens or hundreds of thousands of dollars from crowdfunding, selling unproven supplements, or even e-books showing how to persuade others that vaccines don’t work. Talk about a Ponzi scheme. It would be funny—if the outcomes weren’t so serious. In today’s SB Blogwatch, we get really, really angry. Your humble blogwatcher curated these bloggy bits for your entertainment. Not to mention: Science is hard. This Guy Raised Half a Million What’s the craic? […]

Ecological Farm for Bath – a Food and Drink crowdfunding project in Bath by Middle Ground Growers

Farming with ecology really works and small ecological farms are more productive per acre of land cultivated than conventional (industrial) agriculture. For Bath and beyond… There is no reason why we cannot grow the majority of our calories and nutrients locally. Only decades ago Bath’s food was produced by a myriad of market gardens, orchards and small farms […]
