We'll meet at Maria's home in Ontario. Tour her garden, meet other organic gardeners, then sit down for a question and answer session. Hopefully some of our seasoned gardeners and master gardeners can be there to share information.

    Wow! What a great time. I always learn good stuff from all of you. I wanted to mention a couple of things. I was driving by a place in south Ontario called Beneficial Agricultural Services and they have mountains of free mulch on Tuesdays-Thursdays. (909)[masked]

    I had such a great time that I would like to host Meet, Share, and Learn at my home in Upland in September. I'm thinking Sunday, Sept. 22.

    It was a pleasure having you all over! Glad to read you had a good time and gained helpful information. I may invite everyone back over for a working meet up and will gladly return the favor and work on your garden. Thank you for generously sharing your plants, new sprouts, and the harvest of your garden. I will send the links I promised by the end of the week. Happy gardening!

    I enjoyed the meeting and can't wait for r next one. I've been thinking of doing worm composting, I just never thought of putting them in a styrofoam box! I put my worms into their new home as soon as I got home. Thank you for that information :)

    I loved the presentation about doing a worm bin in a styrofoam cooler. What a great way to put those old coolers and all of your kitchen waste to work right under your kitchen sink!

    Hello All,
    I may not have enough seating for everyone for the Q&A so if you have a portable "chair in a bag" please bring with you.
    See you tomorrow!

  • Karen W.

    I will try to come tomorrow, just saw this invite! I'm a Master Gardener, and while I don't know everything, I might be able to offer some advice! :)

    The RSVP list is full! Since there are probably more people who would like to meet up, who is willing to host another meetup soon?

    July 24, 2013

    • Sharon

      OK thanks, more people please RSVP

    Would someone be willing to show me how to chang my photo - I don't really look like a cat :)

    • Sharon

      So there is a box at the top of your home page that shows your photo that says "my profile." Click on that and there will be a prompt that says "change photo." Hope this helps, though we really don't believe you now that you don't have those stunning feline eyes.

    Sharon, I have a small house but a big yard, big covered patio and welcome more guests since we will be outside for this event. Thoughts?

    Hello Everyone!
    I am excited and looking forward to hosting everyone this Sunday!

    To keep things on track I thought the following agenda would help:

    11:30a-12:00p Social time/garden tour/snacks
    12:00p-12:15p Introductions
    12:15p-1:00p Questions/Answer
    1:00p-1:30p Vermicomposting
    (For those interested, please bring a
    container in which to take your worms)

    If you want to take home some sprouting plants, please bring a small pot or container (tomato plants, and other seeds I need to thin). Submit your questions in advance here in the event a Master Gardener is unable to attend. Perhaps someone else in the group can answer during the meeting. I will keep track of any unaswered questions for our next meet up, or even the discussion board.
