Tell us a little about your gardening background and experience...

I grew up on a farm. I helped plant the strawberries. I plant vegetables and flowers every year. I use Tagro soil to amend my soil. My favorite flowers to grow are dahlias. I experiment with different flowers and locations in my yard. If a plant doesn't like a spot, I'll move it. Around here, I use lots of slug bait in the spring. I mulch my spoiled veggies/ fruits, apple cores, banana peels, eggshells, orange peels, spoiled lettuce, spinach, etc. I through it out to the flower beds year round.

What would you like to see or learn more about in our gardening meetups?

Container gardening, sharing plants, shade plants.

If we have special workshops or guest speakers, would you be able to contribute a minimal amount to cover basic costs?

Yes.
