Last night, we had a significant rewrite of the title of this page,
removing the inherited sectarian language, and also set out this:
"Long Term Goals and Vision!
1. For the community to become financially self supporting, adopting
and developing improved farming techniques and other sustainable living
2. For the community to be an example and pass on any gathered knowhow

I am racing today to try to write a draft overview paper emphasising
the importance of review of agricultural perspectives to be in the

Some of you may be interested in helping with that, it will be at the
'big picture - overview' forum of the discussion section of the web
site [link above].
If you know people who are or have been working in Southeast Asia,
please pass this on.
