- Vic will send seeds to Yann in Belgium this weekend as a trial run
- Vic has been modifying the grower agreement to reflect EU grower guidelines
- Based on difficulties in  coordinating the Dulany Bog project, Cedar Mountain Bog has been chosen as a possible alternative since we have an immediate opportunity to help this population. To that end, a public announcement will be made regarding the new designation of Cedar Mountain as the alternate auction beneficiary. We hope our donors understand the reason for the change and they we're not giving up on Dulany Bog - we're still pressing forward with the project.

Meeting was adjourned at 10:15pm
