It was cool meeting you all on Sunday. Thank you Sandy for accommodating us all as well. I'm guessing most of you already know about Vandana Shiva's work, but if not, this video is good. I stayed at the Navdanya farm last year and got involved with the harvesting and bio-diversity activities.

Her "Future of Food" videos are excellent too.

FYI for those that got flax seeds from me yesterday - germination for the ones I have started was 2 months.

This is the on line Seed Saving book that I mentioned at the meeting today.

Helen I would like to try your starter. I make yogurt but using a package, I have often thought I should just take a portion of that and add milk, place in my yogurt container and hey presto.  Theory not tried.  I like my yogurt thick like greek yogurt. So I would have to strain your yogurt to thicken it?

At this stage, I am planning to be there on Sunday and am definitely interested in regular meetings.

I am not interested in sour dough or yoghurt starters as I am gluten and dairy free. BTW for anyone else who is dairy free, Moore Wilson's in town carry a delicious coconut yoghurt made with coconut milk that is also sugar and artificial sweetener free :)

I like the idea of regular get togethers as I cannot make this sunday but would like to come and swap another time.

If anyone would like some starter for Caspian Sea Yoghurt I could bring some to the meeting on Sunday. I've been making this yoghurt for about a year now - it's so easy! I just add fresh (unheated) raw cows milk to the starter and leave lightly covered at rom temperature for 24 hours, after which I store it in the fridge. 
I could also bring some endive seedlings.

No problem, just seeing if there is interest in having regular get togethers. And trying to convince Ursula this is a great place to live. - imports like me know that already.

Comment by Jacob Verbeek on Thursday

I've got another commitment on at the same time as well but am aiming to still call in, maybe around 2:30pm.  Just so you know.

Comment by Hayden McGrail on Thursday

Sorry I can't make Sunday (something came up). Hopefully they'll still be a good turnout. :-)
