Re: green belt
- Hello Berin,
I need to meet with Panos soon, so he can answer some of these
questions, that have been posted; in the winter time he often travels
around Greece, Europe, and some times to Africa.
I know this fall Panos and a group of volunteers dispersed 4,000 kilos
(9,000 lbs) of seed balls near Athens; Panos indicated that all went
well - the area is recovering after a fire. He also indicated that he
was asked to help seed another area that has been burned.
A major part of his effort is concentrated in training people in the
NF method, and then helping them establish the farms in their areas.
