Re: crown land. I have met with an SCRD planner (on his invitation) on three 
occasions to begin discussion on how these huge tracts of land could be shared. 
But that is when the treaty issue raised its head. Now the land claims have to 
be settled before we look at shared use of the 700 acres of land that could be 
carefully used. But it is in the works - just on hold.

  A rather good forum, if we can find someone who knows something about it, 
would be how to apply for 'crown' land (me'arse it belongs to some witch from 
overseas!) agroforestry leases.  I know there are 60 acres behind this dump 
that I would love to grow goldenseal on, various fungi etc.  Yes I know I can 
just go and do t but there isn't as much security as I would like to say buy 
10000 rootlets and build raised beds with the right PH.
  When I look at guvmint documents they read like Cantonese to me.  I get 965 
matches for 'canopy 5,4,3' from the PFAF database.  I'm sure there are more 
things and results from Britain are showing that a forest edge hog run is 
amazing both in the growth of the hog, and also in the results of biodiversity 
at the forest edge.
  If everything goes doollalley having breedig pairs of animals would be great 
(hints of Noah) and there will be no greater form of wealth as our ancestors 
have known for along time.  Fortunately the ocean is still recoverable here in 
a short period if harvesting was table based rather than export based.  I'm 
looking into buying an oyster lease (shore based) to start a 'Community 
Sponsored Mariculture' and to date have waaaayyy more response than I want to 
deal with!  I'd dearly love to release wild boar into the area as well (sorry 
folks, get better fencing) since the Lasqueti feral sheep experiment went so 
  The problem is not what to do, its how to get people into seeing that it 
needs doing.  I 'woke up' a few people in Vancouver about what is occurring 
with two movies Aaron Russo's "America: Freedom to Fascism' (buy it or torrent 
it) and "Endgame: Blueprint for Global Enslavement" (buy it or torrent it, or 
ask me and I'll burn you a copy of either).  Both would seem outlandish a few 
years ago but with the guvmint subtly moving to restrict our ability to feed 
ourselves on the one hand then handing out crumbs of money for 'community food 
security', its not that hard to come to the conclusions the movies do.  The PTw 
(Powers That were) are playing for keeps.

    Hi, all - Good discussion -
    I would like to return briefly to the original message to this group - that 
I will be offering another Microfarm Forum in February, am inviting people to 
speak on Non Forest Timber Products and "Value Added", and am wondering if 
there is another class that some consensus could develop around for a third 
    The theme will be "Capacity Building", remembering that this is what the 
funds are directed towards - helping growers increase capacity to grow food, to 
feed themselves, and then to sell to others, in an effort to make the Sunshine 
coast safer to live in, reduce fossil fuel use, bring people back to their 
    Meanwhile, please carry on with dialogue ...

believes individually. Abba Eban
