Wabeno – The Bodwéwadmi Ktëgan, which translates to Potawatomi Farm, in Forest County is promoting a farm-to-table lifestyle. The farm offers a variety of agriculture, from pigs, cows and bison to specific Potawatomi fruits and vegetables.

The COVID-19 pandemic has sent a wave of uncertainty across the globe. In the Philippines especially, where many Filipinos place a premium on health, a pall of fear and anxiety can be felt over almost every facet of daily life.

Filipinos are naturally inclined to value personal relationships and family over things like material health, so many hold the belief that a healthy life is a happy life. But how can Filipinos sharing that belief cope with a global pandemic?
