Visitors to an Eat-In and Farm Tour at Full Circle Farm in Sunnyvale were inspired to join a movement that fosters family-scale agriculture.

Urbanites signed on to unite with farmers who care for the land, sustain local economies and promote social justice.

When you are in the South Bay you are in Raging Granny territory! The Raging Grannies strive to serve bran and soy....to ever girl and boy!

Twinkle Twinkle Veggie Treats
tune: Twinkle Twinkle Little Star

Grannies serve good stuff to eat -- Fruits and veggies, what a treat
Beans and carrots taste real swell -- help our insides work so well
Grannies serve good stuff to eat-- Fruits and veggies, what a treat

Grannies serve good stuff to eat -- Healthy lunches can't be beat
We just love that bran and soy -- Give them to each girl and boy
Grannies serve good stuff to eat -- Healthy lunches can't be beat
