I just found this video which is very relevant to the subject of the next meeting we were discussing.

By the way - the monthly Green Dollar market is this Saturday, at the St John hall, Greytown. Well worth a visit!
I'll have my seeds and jam there, and Living Economies books, DVDs and magazines.

Anyone looking for budding/grafting material?
I can suppy 3 varieties of Ballerina (narrow column growth): Waltz, Polka and Bolero.
Also Monty's Surprise and Golden Winter Pearmain - the latter ripens really early.)
If you're after small fruits I have well rooted black currants, grapes and Tayberry.

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 :)
