Kudos to you for the kind of work you're doing in such difficult terrains. Would love to know of your personal experiences in working with mountain communities.

Thanks for the add Siddharth.

You have a truly commendable program to build local agricultural capacity, I look forward to learning more. This is a huge area in BC right now as well, not only for resource dependant communities but also for building capacity for urban/local populations in local food cultivation and procurement, especially in light of the effects of climate change on food production and security.

Dear Sid, you have been added. i have been out and about of late. will be frequenting it more now.

Matter of factly, if you live in a poor neighbourhood, sooner or later it's gonna rub off on you. So either you get poor or make them rich. The latter choice benefits all. But then how?? I see just a few people siphoning off all the money. A coterie everywhere. Certainly it will make some people rich but then at what cost and at whose cost? I really pat this Society which has repalced Honesty with Smartness- euphemism for Unscruplousness. I am dead against such social structure. Look where all the Smart People have landed America (USA). Remember Greece, Sovereign Debt Default. Note my words –at max 15 years from now, our dear country will be replicating Greece-. After all, in the end, Chickens will come home to Roost.
