    Howdy, Nathan. It seems we are interested in many of the same topics, though that is not difficult seeing your extensive list! Urban foraging was sure easier in Portland than here. My travels were ideal for the hobby of identifying indigenous plants, though each new site required additions to my library and logging. I hope to meet you and learn what you have accomplished here so far.

    Thank you for the welcome. I'll be arriving to CO in June and hope to learn a lot this year so that my garden next year will be a success. I'm always eager to see demos, hear "how-to" speakers/worksh­ops and to learn from trial and error. I am super excited about this group. I'm particularlly interested now about building bat boxes, learning about what the current thoughts on saving bees from the mites, etc. that plague them (although I do not have a bee colony myself).
