I've been wishing I had some buddies to share seeds, seedlings and even ladybugs with! I've been gardening successfully for 3 years and grow 95% of our produce year-round. Come join me! I have lots of ideas for this group! Can't wait to start!

Do you currently have an organic veggie garden or do you want to start one?

I have 3 fully covered raised bed gardens because of all the animals in our area. We built them 3 summers ago, my first veggie gardening experience. Thanks to great teachers and the Internet (for pest research), our gardens have been very successful.

Do you have any topics you would like to share with group at a meeting of your own? If so, what?

Yes, I would like to share a lot of information about the natural living subject (details later).

What would you like know more about in terms of organic veggie gardening?

How much water do I really need to give the plants? That's just one thing on my mind. I might be over-watering, but the plants seem to love it.

What would you like to know more about in terms of natural living (e.g., avoiding chemicals, products to use, products to avoid, food info, nature events, etc. etc.--note this is not just about food)

Always open to new info, but I'm a go-to person on this subject.

What Jan Tucker is saying about this Meetup Group

    Hi Jan,
    I am very interested in sharing seeds, transplants, and garden produce. I am also into many aspects of homesteading (canning, preserving the harvest, making soap, salves and lip balms) and am looking into other areas. Would love to connect and see your place.

    Hi Jan! Just met with JC Lindsey this week to talk about his plan to create a Temecula Valley Permaculture Association. I had him up here to my farm and we talked about doing classes here. I have the land and the projects, and need to link up with the experts in the Valley to start hosting classes on aquaculture (just added a little pond), composting (need help here), vermiculture (got this going), permaculture earthworks (I can host a work party), hugelkulture (I have just the spot).
