Okay - to tell you the truth, I'd rather have you two than Lynn! But as for the 
Non Timber forest products - I can get you the book in case you ever want to 
look at your little woods -
Also - was at a dinner party with an American (!) at it last night and she was 
trying to figure out if it was okay to drop in on Canadians or not and I told 
her I was not sure if I was supposed to drop in on Americans - was thinking of 
doing that yesterday on my way to D'Arcy's since I was going past your place - 
did you get my message? These little cultural things, you know!

  Workshop looks great, still not sure if i'll participate other than as

    okay - Tim needs the whole projector thingy, but one that sticks into a 
laptop ... sorry about that.

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

      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.
