Summer has flown by. I got a new Web Design contract that is keeping me out of the house like a "real" job, and my son started school last week. I expect all our northern flock to be flying home to us soon, so it's time to get back to GREEN!
Same as before, the 4th Thursday of the month at 6pm. We can discuss changing this time at our next meetup if anyone would like, or here on the website chat board.
September's meetup - How to have a plentiful garden and maintain it in only 8 hours a year.
I am a lover of gardening although, I have spent time in the past gardening that seemed to be more than it was worth. Now, I will give you all you need, to do it quickly and actually reap much more. We will have a few different meetups over the next year pertaining to gardening and I am sure we all can say we have time for 8 hours a year for fresh, healthy vegetables.
This first Gardening meet will consist of going over Materials, Checklist, Set Up, and Maintaining. Then we will watch a couple of videos from my mentor on the subject. There are 14 short videos in all, so we will break this lesson into 2 meetups. At our second we should be able to get through the rest of the videos and see if anyone has started with theirs and has any questions.
This is the perfect time to get started on a project like this. Planting season is fast approaching. Not that now is not good as well. Take a look at the beautiful eggplant growing in my Aquaponics bed at this very moment.
I am adding some of the Materials list below, in case you would like to get started on gathering before the meetup. We do have a limit on seating as the location is a little small although, for this meet it will be especially relevant as the owner has an amazing garden that produces more than his household needs.
See you there!
If RSVP fills long before the meet, we will schedule a second showing.
