Utne Reader Red LogoEvery week we share links to stories, articles, and other interesting things we’ve come across online for you to enjoy over the weekend. It’s the utne.com crockpot; we add the ingredients for a great online meal. Enjoy!  

We’re voracious readers, but when we tire of words we soothe our eyeballs by scrolling through the latest entries at the amazing visual blog This Isn’t Happiness.

Good discusses designing buildings that promote activity and combat obesity.

It’s harvest time, and we love to read about the bounteous scene at small farms across the country at The Blog Barn run by Local Harvest. Writing about subjects from pecans to pumpkins, alpaca babies to bunny wool, small producers across the country share vivid vignettes from the barn and the field.

Indie group Belle & Sebastian wants to write a song about you.

Jason Fried on why you can’t work at work. If you haven’t seen this already, it’s a must-view for anyone who works in an office.
