  • I don’t know if this is the best place to share this talk, but I’m trying to follow through with the renewed commitment to using this site!
  • Hi Folks, I look forward to joining this group. I’ve been reading on my own for a while now and working on a couple of related projects: The Climate Adaptation Committee of the Environmental Management Council and the Climate-Wise Gardening group and Fair. I also try my hand at gardening for birds and pollinators, among others. Regi
    • Hi, Regi! Your name came up in a very positive way at tonight's MOF meeting. Can you call me sometime this week, and I'll give you an idea of where we're at in our process? 607-216-7441 Looking forward to talking! Merrill
  • Nice little article in this week's Tompkins Weekly. Kind of says it all: in order to increase the practice of regenerative farming, we need to support the movement by buying locally and organically!

  • Hello, all. Go to https://s3.amazonaws.com/assets.cce.cornell.edu/attachments/1172/fa... to read what Cornell Extension has to say about carbon sequestration. Unfortunately, written a while ago. I have a call in to connect with someone. Will try again before our meeting. *** Is everyone available to zoom at 7:00 on Thursday, July 30? If technology is on our side, we should get plenty of time for our conversation. Merrill

  • Wow. The minutes look really strange. Any suggestions?
  • I posted the minutes under Forum.
  • Great chat tonight! Sorry we lost you at the end, Marie. Before I forget, when I signed out of the meeting, they offered us another free extension for our next meeting if I scheduled right away! So I did! Obviously we can change the date I picked, or just go with Dave's account next time, but pencil this date on your calendars: Thursday, July 30, 7PM. Now I'll get to the minutes.
