Oh wow! That's such an awesome review. Thanks Nicole! You are right about the how-to's - we went light on the how-tos' in favour of the experiential & organizing aspects of keeping a group healthy and fun and sustainable. We continue to be inspired by some really great how-to books out there, and forums like permies.com where people can share their successes and challenges directly, so we thought we'd share what we think we have to offer that's kind of unique about us & the way we do things. That said, as you pointed out, there's a handy dandy tips section.
Quick n dirty, you might say, heh heh. Mud puns!! We just can't get enough.
