Hi, all

I'm forwarding a note from Matt Greenan, a young man I met at a recent talk
at the Dal Sustainability College who is, with some friends, starting up an
organic farm in Lunenburg County. He'd like to connect with like-minded
people who might support their Indigogo campaign for start-up funding. I
made a modest contribution.

Matt, both the Walmarks and Mike Bradfield have extensive mailing lists;
Jason Pelley is engaged in sustainable agriculture himself; Linda Best is
my best contact at the Nova Scotia Food Council; and the sust-mar listserv
connects a whole list of people committed to sustainability in the
Maritimes. I hope that by putting you in touch with this great group of
people, you'll find the community connections you'll need.

If there's more I can do, just ask -- and very best of luck with the
