    We won't be able to help. My birthday is next week, and my husband would like us to have a family weekend. See y'all at another build. :)

    Hello Everyone-
    We are so excited to get going on our project! We will be providing lunch for our voluneers, and my 14 year old daughter wants me to let you know that children are welcome in her "child care" for the day. She has lots of fun plans for kids, so if you are thinking you can't make it because you have no place for your kids, come on out and bring them too!

      I have only been to one so far (last week end). But I would venture to say that anytime you can show up there is something to help with :O)

    Sounds like a great opportunity to learn more about the process. I'd really like to convert my garden to an aquaponic greenhouse this year.
