Seeking Common Ground is a first year CSA, located about 15 miles 
south of Rochester, NY. We are a participatory CSA with an educational 
base. I would like to see a track on Workshops that can be used with 
Members. This would include, Children's Workshops, Adult Workshops and 
Combination Adult/Child Workshops. Lesson Plans for workshops, time 
limits, pre and post activities (linking workshop w/daily living).

I would also like to see a Picture Gallery Set up with pictures from as 
many CSAs as possible. Perhaps a Photo Award for a few catagories.

I would like a workshop on Fund Raising development and grant writing. 
What grants are available. How involved is it to submit grants.

I would also like a workshop on Public Relations/Promotion. 

A structured small group discussion group on a few topics would also be 
interesting. Participants could pick a topic of choice and join that 
group. Someone from each group could report back to the group.

About how many people will attend (estimate)? Name tags w/farm on it is 
always helpful.

I also suggest contacting our farmer, Woody Wodraska as a presenter. He 
is well versed in many areas of CSAs and an excellent presenter. 
(surprise Woody!)
