As a coordinator for the bamboo conference, I wish to clarify that we did
indeed send andvance notice to sanet, as well as some other mail groups,
several months ago. This is not our first notice. Sorry that you missed
those other announcements.
Your offer of advertising such workshops/conferences is well appreciated
and hopefully some future events we are working on will fit your timeline.
Have you heard about the FSRE conference? I am working with a team to
coordinate a section entitled "Farming the Urban Fringe" which will focus
on the barriers and opportunities to farming in and around urban areas.
That conference is happening Nov 3-6 in Mt. Hood, Oregon. If you need more
information (an annoucement was sent to SANET a few weeks ago), I would be
glad to send it to you.

>The Bamboo meeting is a case in point. We have 2 international journals (one

>advertise such an event. We publish about 50 journals on all aspects of
>agriculture, so whatever your meeting is about there is probably a place
>somewhere for an announcement.
