The first meeting began on the steps of the local community hall. Gordon introduced us and began listening. People filed in and the meeting began.
Señor Leon spoke as the manager of the local bank, Euler and Linda spoke about the importance of control for frosty pod rot and the necessity of provenance for profit maximization and organic certification. It came time for Gordon to speak and over the next 45 minutes he laid out the concept of the regenerative model for conservation and resource management.
Names, emails, and phone numbers were exchanged and hugs abounded. It was agreed that the co-op would meet regularly and Gordon and I would continue to advocate for the benefit of the members.
