A real, first CSARE/SAEd-Share-L face-to-face opportunity (fwd)

 I have put this on the Perma list as a suggestion for PAWA to look at

Dear SAEd-Share-L subscribers;

Something special is happening -- and may fulfill one of the 'wishes' of
the evaluation/futuring exercise: for SAEd-Share-l subscribers to meet
face-to-face to discuss sustainable agriculture education.

>TO: CSARE Members and Friends
>FROM: Elizabeth Bird, Organization and Development Director
>RE: June 1997 Conference and First CSARE Members Meeting -- PLEASE COME!


You are invited to meet other participants in various projects of the
Consortium for Sustainable Agriculture Research and Education (CSARE), of
which SAEd-Share-L is a project of the Education Task Force.

I have posted, below, the announcement from Elizabeth Bird, CSARE, which
has been distributed to people involved in projects other than SAEd. I
would love to use this opportunity to organize a Sustainable Agriculture
Education discussion or planning session or whatever. However, I am
committed to attending the Convergence participatory action research
conference in Colombia, SA that same week in June. My sincere regrets. The
schedule looks great.

But I encourage you to do something yourself or with others. Please use the
list to discuss 'what' and 'why' with other subscribers.

(The end of this post discusses the in's, out's and why's of CSARE
membership, if you are interested. You do not need to be, nor do you
become, a member of CSARE to subscribe to SAEd-Share-L.)
