  • Approved agenda
  • September 30 minutes approved
  • Discuss WWOOFERs - the question is, who pays for their work. Since most of the work done will ultimately be to the benefit of EcoReality, we are presenting this request to the members at the next teleconference:
    • Request for EcoReality as the primary beneficiary of WWOOFer labour, to bear the cost at 1/2 the current cost for guests and visitors, which is currently $300 per month. We have discussed that any personal tasks performed for the residents, that the residents would pay for the cost of meals/lodging at the same rate (1/2 the current cost or $1.67 per hour).
  • Work party - fruit harvest
    • James has proposed that the household that processes the fruit will donate a portion of the processed food to the community pantry. The only place for this is in the small basement room in the yellow house. Carol has agreed to steward the Community Pantry and let Osha know about what is being stored.
  • Thanksgiving dinner this weekend.
    • Jan & Carol will host the usual potluck on Saturday. The residents will have Thanksgiving on Thursday as James, Shannon & Sienna will be in Victoria.
  • Qi Gong - nothing to note about upcoming meeting with Felicity.
  • Calendar - Jan has changed the group calendar because of problems and will print a calendar for Rudy's information.
  • Power outages - what to do incase of power outage. We need to keep stored water until the generator is setup.
