What planting/gardening methods are you utilizing currently?

I generally put my plants in the ground... :-) I have a couple of compost piles cooking; strongly encourage all to compost. Will be establishing a raised garden bed in the near future.

Which self-sufficiency topic interests you the most?

No answer yet

Can you offer related topic knowledge to contribute to group learning efforts?

I think most folks are going to have more experience & knowledge than I do, although I would be happy to relate my composting experiences.

What's your experience level in gardening &/or preparedness?

Not extensive - fortunate enough to have a yard which I'm trying to "landscape" off & on.

What motivated you do join the group?

Well, as I mentioned above, I'm developing a garden and it would be nice to learn something from folks with more experience & knowledge than myself, ...won't be that difficult; and meet some like-minded folks.


Slowly developing 'the garden' - butterfly, hummingbird, and limited herbs, ...currently. My blessing, and my curse, are two big live oaks that shade 90% of my yard. I've also been doing a little riding for Gainesville Compost since spring.

What JohnRobert is saying about this Meetup Group

Thoroughly enjoyed Kory's presentation. It was very helpful to see how he put together the starter cups. Too bad it got dark so soon, would have enjoyed more time for discussion on the topic and related matters.
