    I just joined the group- so sad that I missed this meeting. I hope another one like this for beginners is available again, soon!

    I thought this was a great idea! Those of us with experience can help the beginners.

    Hi Sara,

    I'm thinking I'll address any posted questions. Other than that, I'll cover the basics like planting zone, how to read a seed catalog, how to select healthy plants, what to plant when, etc. What other questions would you have? Best, Laura

    I just joined meetup today. I'm getting ready to tear down alot of the summer garden and prep the soil for winter. I would love to meet some time within the next couple of weeks, preferably on the weekend.

    Perhaps we just need to pick a time and date and meet. It's the middle of Summer gardening time and I would love to talk plants, bugs, food and organic treatments with some folks. Anyone near Woodstock? Or the Milton area?

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
