Re: Permaculture Swale & Pond Building Workshop @ Rodale Institute -Reply

Response to Runs With Scissors- Swale construction IS an appropriate
topic for a compost list.  The Clean Washington Center and E & A
Environmental Consultants in Seattle, WA are in the middle of study
looking at the use of compost in bioswales and the preliminary results
look very promising!! These kinds of workshops and opportunities to
share research focus and information is the reason I stay on this list- not
to read about individual problems with how to construct worm bins and
whether grass is a "greeen or a brown"!!!

Let's be a bit more open to sharing and learning.....

While admirable, this is off-topic for the compost list.
Additionally, internet email is an inappropriate forum for unsolicited

Please refrain from emailing unsolicited advertising in the future.

I still don't want to see your advertising.
