Doing the Lord's Work by Saving the White Race

A Big Thank You, and One Great Event, upcoming!

We had our first LITM get together with like minded compatriots from other areas this weekend. We got some major new fence built, and ate some fresh “clean” food for supper from the garden. After supper, we sipped a little whiskey, talked about days to come, while sitting on the porch, cooled by the night breeze. Thanks compatriots, the pleasure was mine! Next time whiskey, clogging and fiddling on the porch! Can not wait.

We try to use only non-hybrid seeds here at LITM. We are seed savers, no Monsanto for us! The Southern Exposure Seed Exchange,  http://www.SouthernExposure.com is a great source for such seed. Their seeds and plants do well through out the Celtic Fringe. They have an up coming event, go if you can, (make time).  Have a good time, learn something, and be  Doers of the Truth.
