click on the logo above for the SFJ website 2/24/08 Fleck.TV invited to join a small farm conservancy steering committee for the Small Farmers Journal to help shape a new strategy for developing a non profit educational initiative in order to help disseminate the SFJ's knowledge base worldwide.

Lynn R. Miller, Larry Brewer and Sue Tank, the Nordell's, -- these are some of the Earth's most progressive thinkers and farmers who not only help write, edit and publish a remarkable quarterly, they also generously share their wisdom and knowledge to all who seek it.

Now that a few financial entities have extended inquires about how to help the SFJ's collective knowledge reach everyone on our planet who needs it, we feel privileged that our experience in media as well as organizing and running non-profits may aid in realizing a vision where farming is maintained as the art & craft that it is.

We seek to aid communication between farmers, not study them. As a former US President and horseman said in 1891

"...the man who really counts in the world is the doer, not the mere critic-the man who actually does the work, even if roughly and imperfectly, not the man who only talks or writes about how it ought to be done." Theodore Roosevelt

Along with her media skills, Jane is good on the lines driving horses. Her work experience includes a stretch driving a horse drawn carriage in downtown "Old" Pasadena. The American Cream draft horse was named "Buster." Bob once rode in her carriage from where it was stabled in Arroyo Grande while Jane drove, through some of the oldest neighborhoods of Pasadena. Bob had one of Bill Webster's dulcimers set out on the seat facing him and he happily hammered out tunes from WWI times as they clip-clopped past houses. Residents of the big, old homes came running out with their children to show them what we were doing. We were both busy and didn't record it. That's OK, neither of us will ever forget that day.
