Mojave will bring background history and meaning to our group with stories, and then we will discuss issues of better technique building, record keeping, selection and seed collectives. And bring your questions! We will gather at  least one question per person through a beginning round, and organize and triage to address key areas. We will cover isolation distance and techniques, and persevering  genetic diversity.
