In this forum there is such a wealth of information...and I have not saved all of the wonderful links you have posted throught the past year or two...

A local group is putting together a Sustainability Fair...and instead of encouraging vendors to come and sell products, they are keen to introduce ideas and concepts for people to use for composting, growing vegetables, recycling/reusing normally non recycleable products. Our islands are small...and we have bulging landfills and growing obesity and...and...and...

I remember some wonderful links to CSI (Community Service????) and Grow in a Bag and many others...

Can you post them again here? I want to pass these links onto the folks running the Fair so they can get tuned into what is going on in the outside world... I would really appreciate any and all you can do. We do have non-circulating hydroponics and Bokashi handled... Any more information would be terrific: non-tilling gardens etc...

Thanks in advance,
Carol
