Beautiful! One correction
What a great infographic!One correction: Orlah is calculated by Rosh Hashana (i.e. the first of Tishrei) and not Rosh Hashana for trees (i.e. Tu B'shvat). Terumah is calculated based on Tu B'shvat, though.

We need to pledge our support to sustaining our earth
This is the time to pledge our support for a sustainable planet. To insure the animals raised for food are treated humanely , we need to support legislation to eliminate GMO foods, and cancer causing pesticides and chemicals from our food supply,and we must defeat greedy corporations like Monsanto who are poisoning our world.Also we need to support our small local organic, non-GMO farms and farmers.
