  Hi, all! We are gearing up for the next Microfarm Forum, and here are a few 

  Can anyone lend the ... gizmo ... that sticks into a laptop computer hole and 
turns it into a powerpoint thingy like a projector, or maybe it actually then 
needs a projector ... or whatever they call it now (and wow - aren't you glad 
I'm finally picking up some techno talk??) to save Tim carrying one from 

  And - we have requests to provide childcare and Joan sent an ad out to the 
co-housing people so it could be close and "in house" but I have heard nothing 
back. Ideas welcome.

  Third - ads are going out to the public soon. Here are some details - if you 
would like to come, please book soon. I am creating a cut-off at 20 people, 
knowing that more will "creep" in but knowing it will blow the timetable all to 
hell ... so let me know soon, before posters and such go out.

  Our helpers this year are Chad Herchler and Mikal and Lisa (Baker/French). 
Please thank them and if you like, help them with any tasks they may need to 
spread thinner! They can post for help with this email system. And remember you 
can all chat, as well. 

  DETAILS, perhaps a little finer than last time, to help you make a decision -


  Improving Marginal Soils with Alain Bergeron (for those who took this last 
year, who do not wish to take it again, just roll over and punch the snooze 
button and come in at 10 a.m.)
  Introducing Non Timber Forest Products with Tim Brigham - will bring a 
catalogue of existing Non Timber businesses (mushrooms, pinecones, herbs etc) 
in BC and talk about how they are doing and will bring forest tea for us to 
drink and will show slides. If we have a thingy by then.
  Improving Farm Efficiency/Winter Veggies with Marika Nagasaka - More of the 
same to drive it all home, plus will discuss winter vegetables.
  The Pros and Cons of Value Added - D'Arcy Davis Case. D'Arcy will discuss 
issues surrounding Value Added products - and will talk about examples, to give 
us a better idea of whether we want to try this with our own farm foods. Lynn 
will talk about a possible co-op idea and how that could work.
  Keith who works at Mental health and possibly a teen will talk about some 
possible labour help.
  if there is even 10 minutes, I might explain Microclimating and how it can 
expand room on marginal land for more crops.
