Donate to Matsiman Web and Study Projects
|Welcome to Matsiman
| Matsiman.com Has been
open and free to everyone since it's beginning in 1996. Web space, ISP
connections and general maintenance have been supported by Matsiman.
Matsiman's income and living situation changed in August 2007. This
change increased basic living expenses and Matsiman's ability to
continue fully supporting the site. Financial help from visitors is need
to ease the basic costs, ISP connection and web space.
| Those who donate
will be listed on a sponsor page,
Sponsors of Matsiman Web &
Studies, and given access to all pages. Plans
are to allow all visitors free access to general information pages, but
require registration, email address confirmed, for message boards. This
action is necessary to keep inappropriate posts and those who make them
out of discussions and off publicly viewed messages. Message Board
format will remain the same.
| Funds received will
primarily be used for web costs. However, funds received in excess of
web costs will ease costs of a continuing matsutake sustain ability
study. One published paper has been generated from this investigation,
of mushroom harvest.pdf , many more are expected. Fuel costs to and
from study site have reached $600.00 per year. Time has been volunteer
10 of the 14 years, volunteer past 6 years. The two volunteers keeping
the study going, Matsiman and Rick Abbott, feel it necessary to
continually monitor the effects of harvest over the long term, educate,
and initiate other investigations related to matsutake.
|Changes will occur
when initial set up costs are received.
