3. We do our best not to ask to go inside the hosts’ home.
4. We never pick fruit, flowers, foliage, weeds, seed pods and we never even ask.
5. We do our best to car pool and park with great respect to our host and the neighborhood.
6. We never talk when our host is talking. We do our best to stay up close when given a tour.
7. We never “take over” the tour and tell everyone how we do it at our home!!
8. We have thoughtful questions but try not to ask questions that embarrass our host.
9. We do our best to help our host feel good, feel appreciated. We clean up our mess.
10. We stay on the path, with our host …and never go walking around on our own unless given permission by the host.
11. At the end of the tour, we make a special effort to thank the host. We “gather up” and have some sort of “closure” to the tour.
12. We even write thank you notes when we get home, especially if we asked a lot of questions, were impressed, were surprised, were treated well. We write thank you notes even when we are not the leader!

September Chapter Meeting

Saturday September 9th, 2017

Event: Tim and Judelon LaSalle welcome the CRFG CC Chapter to an afternoon of a: New Paradigm for Soil Health!

We will learn about:
Why keep your soil covered? What do cover crops accomplish? Tour examples of winter and summer cover crops and learn what they do for your soil. Also, explore why fertilizers are not needed in most all-farming operations and how they degrade soils over time. Additionally, view four different kinds of composting systems from traditional anaerobic to aerobic and from conventional to biodynamic and what is created by these systems. Explore how the right biology can provide everything the plant needs. Has our traditional university training impaired our view of what soils are as a living biome? Why are the most progressive modern farmers developing programs to feed their soils and not their plants? This is an opportunity to step into the realm of regenerative agriculture that goes beyond conventional or organic principles and directly addresses four of the world’s largest challenges; hunger, water, soil loss, and climate change.

Location: 14625 Sandoval Road, Atascadero, CA

Time: 1 p.m.: Refreshments and socializing.
