We meet in Shelbyville, TN at the Hong Kong Restaurant on Madison Street.
We drift in around 6:30 if we are going to eat (buffet or order) and start our meeting at 7:00 in the back room. You don't have to eat, don't have to bring anything but yourselves and an interest in growing things.
That doesn't mean you have to have experience, just an interest.
Got kids? You live with them and so can we. We have a little closet.... just kidding. We are relaxed enough to adjust, so don't let that be a reason to miss the meeting. The owner's son Eric likes to come in and sneak up behind me several times during the meeting. That has not stoped out meeting yet.
If we have enough kids and interest, we could have a meeting dedicated to children in the garden. What plants get their interest, indoor projects, planning the layout of a youth garden etc. It's all fun, so lets us know.
In fact, that may be a good subject for discussion tonight. For more info and garden gleanings go to http://www.mybedfordcounty.com/WeedemandReap.html
