Thanks, again, for the encouragement and suggestions. First rough draft here, I'm not sure if you have to sign up to view, but I'll be moving it over to .ppt after getting this draft finished.

I'm definitely going to have the bucket build go on, but I'll just have my lovely wife do it while I talk about other stuff. Probably, baseball, because no one will be paying any attention to me. Ah, well.

I can't see it. I'm patient. I'll wait... "no one will be paying any attention to me. Ah, well." You are so dead wrong. There's a lot of interest out there. You're going to create even more interest by demystifying the process. Just you wait and see!!!

I've just hit another button on google docs, maybe you can see it now?

Here

My wife, with a drill, will probably cause me to start babbling about baseball. It just happens, sometimes.

We wives can have that effect on our husbands from time to time. Mine starts babbling car parts. Pretend she's not there.

John Smoltz got cut by the Red Sox today.

Compost Everything

This works on my work computer, which hasn't seen it yet.

*crosses fingers*

I think it works now. I shouldn't have to say that it's a very early draft, and very amenable to suggestions, but I will.

CicnyGarden, this looks really good so far. I can follow it! Wish I could attend your presentation.

This is all good. You will be an overnight celebrity.

Thanks everyone for your comments, encouragement, and suggestions.

Round one: 40+ participants, standing room only, 10 kits distributed, 8 more on waiting list.

I no longer have buckets without uses, which kinda' bums me out. I know, I know; but I am bummed.

Demographic: very diverse. Therapists, administrators, researchers alike. Lots of questions, not just about the process but about the concept (of composting, and of bokashi.)

Unfortunately, the room was set up vastly differently than I had seen it last week, and there was a meeting in it that ran to a little after 12 (unscheduled! grrrr!). I was pretty shocked by the turnout, but I think it came off pretty well.

Still room to improve, though. Definitely, very fluid situation; it's like going through compost 101 and 301 at the same time, and in an hour. But, here's hoping it catches on.

I've attached the most recent version of the presentation. I've referenced to the discussions about bokashi DIY here, and hope they might stumble on this to add feedback as well. As always, any and all feedback anyone can provide is solicited and appreciated.

The folks on this board working through this stuff really, really convinced me that I could be a part of this discussion. *Tips hat* Here's hoping I can learn enough to add to the work you guys (and gals!) are doing.

Thanks, CincyGarden, for the presentation link (and for the presentation--lots of work went into it, I can see). It will be great to finally see it in action, and I am looking forward to receiving my kit. It was awfully good of you to offer to educate me. I am sure that I will have lots of technical questions, but I know where to find you!
