No - didn't plan on going to either one. In fact, I didn't know about them.
Have a fun Halloween! You sound happy!

Hi Ali
How are you? Give me a jingle or a personal email - I would love to hear from you.

Hey Hey there Alison! I've posted a call for volunteers on my gardeners email list and also here on the WT-ning site.
What else is needed? Did you find a commercial kitchen?...
Send your team an update note on what the needs are for upcoming auction.
Give me a call and we can talk in the here & now moment of being!

Hi Alison! I just tried to send you a copy of our seed-saving/community garden vision discussion on the whatcomtransition-ning site, but don't know how unless you can click on my transitionwhatcom friend request.
Soo...would you be my friend here too?
Or just send email if you have any questions on how to do.

Come on out to the garden soon...especially any hot days...we can swim, kayak, rest, jump in the lake & laugh out loud for the abundance in life!

Hi Alison! Wonderful to get a note from you. It stimulated some important thoughts about what I have to barter with - especially none food and plant items. I came up with rawhide rattles, my art collages and home design consultations. Need any such thing? I am sure I could pull something else up if needed. I could use some storable garlic, some tomatoes (want to learn to make ketchup for Rick - I am allergic) but not sure I will get to the pesto this year. I will consider it, though. How is the Center for Local Self Reliance doing?
