Hi Nick,

Your name was dropped recently as an Outback contact person. I'm organizing a TW Roving Workparty Saturday November 6th (see events page) and I'm wondering if you have an events calendar or email contact list that you would be willing to forward the event post to? The workparty will have food, apple cider pressing, prizes, and hopefully some music, we want to get a lot of work done and have a great time doing it, and I thought you might know some folks that would be interested.
Oh, and I think I still owe you for a hazelnut and currant shrubs from Swab's yard sale.

cheers, and thanks,
Laura

Hi Nick! Great to have you connected on the "Organic Gardeners...Permaculturist" group! If you go to the group page, and scroll to the discussion section, and then click on "view all" - you'll see a list of many of the resource/discussion pages we have organized. The comment section has been real lively lately, even though we all are so busy spring planting!
Would you remind me if youre the person who was able to visit Masanobu's natural farm in the last year or so? I just can't tell from your picture if thats you :-)

Welcome neighbor! We live down the road near Nelson's market. Am I right that you are doing something with straw-bale in the york neighborhood? Happy to help out if you have a work party!

Hi Nick, my new neighbor! My address is 1131 Humboldt, the one with the big red double decker bus off the alley. I am very interested in seeing or helping with some of the straw bale construction-- please let me know if you are open to help. Also... I will send you an invite to join our Transition Whatcom group "Franklin Park Gardening Club." It is basically an excuse to create community in our neighborhood, through gardening and other activities of sustainability, health, and fun!
