I am interested in starting hydroponics, was looking for sources of information and found this group. It seems to have parallel interests to mine. I think I could benefit from leaning from the members but also contribute a great deal. I have a 6 year old who is following in my footsteps and I want to give him access to as much as I possibly can. We have a Monarch Waystation at home that releases hundreds of butterflies every year. I can donate milkweed seeds to any who wish to help the Monarchs.
I could propose ideas such as monarch butterfly and nematode workshops.
I love gardening, growing edibles and eating the results. I have a job initiating plants (especially succulents) and growing them in tissue culture.
I have a BS from UCLA and an MS in Biology. I have been working with plants 19 years and enjoyed them my whole life. I love earthworms and have started vermiculture projects at home and a couple of schools on a small scale. I love everything living.
