Hi Farmers and friends,
We will be hosting the kick off workshop.  John Duran USDA ARS Soil
scientist, Pres. of the Soil Society, Editor of Journal of Sustainable
Agriculture, and director of the Sustainable Soil Fertility Initiative
(an International project).  Will lead a discussion/demonstration of a
very hands on soil analysis and the use of some of a very farmer
friendly test kit to determine soil quality (many of the components can
be home made or local bought).  Additionally, John Jeavons, author of
many publications and Founder/Executive Director of Ecology Action of
Willits CA.  Is giving a 3-day workshop May 7-9 and will give a FREE
LECTURE on the world food situation and how we can address these
concerns in practical ways and how we can make our farms more
sustainable.  The lecture (and Workshop) is about 3 miles from our
farm.  I will also do a tour and discussion of our farm practices and
marketing.   It is very exciting to have these folks here Please see the
