So what do you do in late February in Georgia? Start your garden!
The formal part of this meeting is 2-parts:
From novice to expert, learn the in's and out's of gardening whether you are starting small or you're a seasoned gardener wanting to overcome frustrating recurring garden issues.
Joey Zeigler is an expert gardener and will share his green-thumb expertise from potted indoor vegetable plants to gardening in the backyard or using raised bedding...Or maybe you just need solutions to overcoming recurring, stubborn problems in your garden. They'll be opportunity for questions and answers so no matter what level of gardener you are, everyone can get the answers they need.
Don Simon is our local expert in organizing community gardens. Don has successfully organized community gardens both in Florida and right here in Marietta, GA.
Learn how to organize, collaborate, and set up a process that allows everyone to be part of a gardening project. Learn how to build community and food abundance while allowing each person to contribute in a way that works best for themselves and the group.
Both presentations will aim to provide the answers you need so bring your questions with you!
For those of you who attended the January meeting, we had an unusual set of circumstances where the heat was accidently turned off, the lighting was too dark, and the seating was not conducive for networking. I would like to extend my apologies and promise that it won't happen again! Thankfully, Jeff Heard's presentation had so much 'wow' factor that the other mishaps were less noticeable!
For February's meeting, we will ensure that the temperature, lighting, and seating will be set to maximize networking opportunities and ensure your comfort. To make it more comfortable for everyone and to be more network-friendly, this upcoming meeting will use all the tables for eating together rather than using them to house the buffet (there's plenty of counter and kitchen space for the food.)
We will continue to improve each meeting as we work with the new location to ensure you have the most comfortable and network-friendly atmosphere for this meetup.
I'll provide paper plates and plastic tableware but in the spirit of sustainability, please try to bring your own eating/drinking utensils.
Formal presentation will begin between 8pm or 8:30pm depending on when we finish eating and we'll end by 10pm.
At this Adult-Only meeting, we'll start off with appetizers and networking at 7pm followed by a shared potluck dinner.
I will provide the main course.
Please bring an appetizer, side, or dessert...or donate $5 to the jar - whichever is easiest. Tap water will be available or bring your own drink if you prefer something else.
I look forward to seeing everyone!
P.S. Please RSVP so I know how much to make.
