Presidents Remarks

First, a special thanks to Mike Pembry for his suggestion several issues ago about using a mountain bike. I have found it quite helpful in getting out to open pasture gates or even take the cyclone seeder to a grassed waterway. Sharing ideas from our own experience is an important aspect of EFAO. Thanks Mike.

Second, Mark your calendar now for the Annual Meeting coming up on Saturday, November 12. See the notice in this newsletter for more details. It will be an important meeting because we have some major issues to decide about our membership fee, activities and elections for directors.

Third, we are developing an advanced course in ecological farming to compliment the introductory course. We will be running it in Kemptville on Saturday, November 26. We are also organizing a Holistic Resource Management(HRM) course for the winter of 1995. The HRM overview this summer was well attended and participants expressed interest in having a full course. Details on both of these further are in the newsletter.

Fourth, Summer is a busy time for all of us. I hope your crops have been good and that you have found time for family and friends. Some of our members have started taking mini-family holidays around EFAO farm tours. This is a wonderful idea and you might want to consider it when you are planning for next summer. This is also a good time to reflect on what worked well this year and what needs improvement and repair for next year. I try and make notes which are filed away for action when things are less busy in the late fall and winter.

Have a good fall and hope to see you at the Annual Meeting.
