1. Do not share seeds of invasive species! If you are not sure you can 
go to https://plants.usda.gov/java/noxious?rptType=State&statefips=15
2. Do not share brassica seeds as spread of blackrot can happen, it is a 
seed-borne disease and many of the seed companies are having a problem 
with this.
3. Do not share old seeds as germination may be low.
4. label or bring a description of each of the seeds you share including 
date of harvest.
5. Bring your own seed envelopes or baggies and markers for labeling.
6. Do not bring seeds and put them on another seed-sharers table unless 
you have a very good description of the seeds/date and crop and 
permission of the person at the table.

Dances of Universal Peace (Sufi dances)*
*Friday Nov 21st,*
* 7-9 pm*   Laakea community.

Dances of Universal Peace (Sufi dances) are easily learned spiritual 
folk dances from all traditions, with gentle movements that even 
"non-dancers" can greatly enjoy.  Singing sacred, ancient phrases 
creates a full body healing vibration, and when conscious movement is 
added, these become powerful spiritual practices.  Each dance will be 
fully taught, no experience is necessary.  These are interactive and 
participatory, not a performance.
