Re: [DallasVegGardeners] Closing of group - Julia, I'm interested in this group but I have to admit, I'm part of the problem. I think most of what I'm looking for is being met by the facebook page.

Closing of group - It's about time to pay for this group again, and we've received less than $25 in donations to keep it going (it takes $72).

In pursuit of discounts - Ron McCann has made a suggestion that we see about getting some discounts from garden suppliers. We currently have 333 members, which is a significant buying block.
