      Coming every-week is alot for anyone so don't feel bad. But we do enjoy having you here. Do keep in touch, come visit drop us a line from time to time and share whatever skills you have, I am particularly interested in solar dehydration. But any-type of preservation is something I would like to know more about.

    Really good, talked about different species of plants, cheap/cold hardy/reliable vendor sources, plant relationships, soil microbes. Did not get to touch too much on land acquisition for a community food forest. That is a much more involved subject that requires a great deal of research from a solid team and we are still in the formative stage.

    Also if anyone want plants/see just leave a comment in the weeks meetup and hopefully someone will bring some. And if you have extra plant or seed just bring them I am sure someone will take it home.

    We had two group of people last week that were starting up a community food forest garden in Dorchester and JP, so hoping that they had came this week. Maybe they will be here next week. So wish I had taken their contact info. Maybe I should have a signup sheet going in the future.

    Here is a place for cheaper fruit and nut trees $7/plant vs $25/plant. They also have a huge collection potted perennial herbs/veggies. http://www.oikostreecrops.com/Perennials/Herbs---Tea-Plants/Zaatar-/p-62-133-1000/

    Hopefully we will get a good group of people that are passionate about creating food forest. So that we can focus on securing sites, (city own lots).
    I got a farmer that would be happy to supply compost/manure.
    We need a labor pool to plant the trees and to do light earthworks. If we give each tree a 10ft spacing on a average 1/10th acre city lot (4,500 sqft) then we need 45 trees @ $10 each. Very doable.
    If we get cutting and seed we could bring that cost down even more.
