3 questions on consensus/ftru/new address

  • Subject: [cg] 3 questions on consensus/ftru/new address
  • From: Dboek@aol.com

Hello, CGers,

I have 3 questions for you:

Can anyone recommend a short clear explanation of consensus-based decision 
making in meetings, ideally one accessible on-line? I badly need guidelines 
that offer a practical alternative to 'Robert's Rules' in community meetings.

I'd like to find a way to bring ACGA's FTRU program to Charlotte. Does the 
program work with programs that are starting small (in this case, a Friend's 
Meeting that is interested in a community garden beside their meeting house) 
- understanding that the idea will be to keep growing, so to speak? Where 
does a community start looking for grant $$$, and how much does the 
assistance/consulting of FTRU cost a community/CG group?

Last, sorry about a lame technical question that I should know, but this 
month I'm finally aleavin' AOL. How do I resubscribe to my new email address?

My little lettuces are just poking their heads up under the remay, but no 
sign of the snowpeas yet. Ah, life in the sunny south - they will be coming 
along soon. 

btw, are CGers aware of the risks of persistent herbicides in municipal 
composts? Although hopefully this problem won't affect most minicipal 
composts, it potentially could. Problems stem from 2 herbicides from Dow 
Chemical, clopyralid (in 'Confront!') and picloram, which do not break down 
in the composting process. They also pass straight through the gut of 
animals, and can show up in horse and cow manure. They are toxic to beans, 
tomatoes and other crops at very low levels - asparagus is affected at a few 
parts per _billion_. Problems have been reported in Washington State, 
Pennsylvania and New Zealand.  See <A 
HREF="www.jgpress.com/BCArticles/2001/070125.html">Biocycle article on 
herbicide in compost</A>.
