This forum is for information sharing and providing help. This is not a Facebook group where anything and everything will be accepted. People should feel free to ask questions and seek advice, without having the fear of criticism.
 
Before you post, ask yourself this question: Would you say the same thing in person and in front of your mother?
If the answer is no, rewrite your response. 
 
General Rules
 
Remember We Are All Unique
Everyone is different in their history, knowledge, journey, and farming practices. What works for you, may not work for others. Remember this and do not jump too quick in response.
 
Be Kind, Be Supportive, Be Helpful
We are here to listen, support, encourage, educate, and help. Remember this as you post comments or replies and know that written text can come across very differently than in-person interaction.
 
No Hate Speech or Bullying
Make sure everyone feels safe. Bullying of any kind isn't allowed, and degrading comments about things like race, religion, culture, sexual orientation, gender or identity will not be tolerated.
 
Welcome Others and Offer Help
People who join this association/forum may feel overwhelmed and under-supported. Welcome them and remind them we are here to help.
 
Only Share Articles from Reputable Sources
The admin will delete any articles from sources that are from questionable sources.
 
Respect Everyone's Privacy
Being part of this forum requires mutual trust. Authentic, expressive discussions make forums great, but may also be sensitive and private. What's shared in the forum sometimes needs to stay in the forum.
 
Report Others and Keep Our Group a Safe Place
Bad apples bring down the entire association. Please report issues to the association.
