Dear Friends,

If you are looking for fertile land on 6.5 acres to garden organically

creek, with beautiful perennial gardens, woodlands, meadow, small 
orchard, massive oak trees and a quaint 2 BR 1800's farmhouse, I am 
offering such a place.

Rent could start immediately. If you are interested, please contact me. 
(See contact info below).  To see some photos, go to:
http://angelamanno.com/sla/gallery.html. I would be happy to provide 
additional info and photos.

The location is New Lebanon, NY, right on the border of Massachusetts, 
near Hancock and Pittsfield. It's on the borderline of the Berkshires 
and Hudson Valley, near the Abode of the Message, a Sufi community and

Re: Gaia University: Action Learning Degrees for EcoSocial Regeneration

One thing that concerns me about Gaia University is that although the
Accreditation page talks a lot about accreditation, it basically takes a
long time avoiding a simple acknowledgment that it's not accredited
anywhere, with anyone.

So it may or may not be good quality education - I don't know. I wouldn't
rule it out for not being accredited, though that will be a legitimate
concern for some students. But I like dealing with people who talk straight
and share honestly - promoting their services in this evasive way turns me
off, personally speaking.

===They are supposedly accredited outside the United States (I studied
a bit with one of their educators.)  I had thought about getting more
involved, but decided against it, partially due to things still being
unclear and shifting in the program itself.

Dear SANET friends,
I am pleased to announce that my new book, "The Call of the Land: An
Agrarian Primer for the 21st Century," is  published as of Sunday, October
4, 2009. You can learn more about the book here <

The Call of the Land is a concise sourcebook ? a primer ? exploring dozens
of positive pathways for food security, economic stability, environmental
health, and cultural renewal. I wrote it over the last two years in direct
response to the challenges before us.

The book offers concepts, philosophy, ethics, tools, models, network
connections, resources, and inspiration for a broad range of agrarian
possibilities to support our future. I hope it will be of service to you and

you have not seen nothing yet.they are doing trees micro organisms nothing
is out of reach when you can own life forms you make it the lab. they take
genes from any where even humans and mix them with the plants dna and thus
they can own the life.  now make them clean it up they own it.  find the
gene in that pig weed and have the owners pay to clean it up and let them
know that you can't clean it up . its alive.   to much money they are more
powerful than the government.

did you see the pig weed on the news.  its not nice to fool mother nature.
its all that gmo stuff.  I don't want to say we told you so.  money wins
every time in our government.

money talks not u Joe.  I'm glad you still fighting the good fight.   say it
ant so Joe.  u been telling them for years its going to take more than the
pig weed that eats land
see the news on TV . who owns that pig weed its man made.   they will not
stop till they pollute the whole earth.  the congress owns shares of stock
they are inside traders.  its is a money pit. the golden rule he  that has
the gold rules.  to bad so sad.  you have not seen nothing yet.  were
talking about taking genes from any where and mixing up life on earth

Re: canning pawpaw - any experience?

Hi, Jon. I believe they're hardy enough to be grown here where I live in
the Okanagan, so I don't see why they couldn't be grown on the coast.
There is a man in Duncan who sells all sorts of interesting tropical and
sub-tropical plants, and pawpaws are on his list:

http://www.tropic.ca/index.htm

The pawpaw page isn't displaying properly because of a mimetype error --
I'm about to e-mail the guy about it -- but it does mention 'Wilson', a
cultivar that ripens well in the cool summers of the coast.

You'll need at least two trees -- a male and a female, and be careful
about placement, because (1) they apparently sucker like mad; that's why
they always say pawpaw *patch*, and (2) they're fly-pollinated, so the
flowers smell a bit fetid.

Hope this helps!
Paul

Can you explain how you arrived at this conclusion?  What it says on the
accreditation page is that it's accredited with IMCA Socrates...
