Time to get dirty again.
I was waiting and waiting for more to get the gardening blood boiling again. My inside plants and seed starting was just not doing the trick but FINALLY it looks like the forecast is getting people geared up for the new season.
What does everyone think about Friday, April 4th? 6:30 or 7:00? Where? I don't know yet, I gotta ask the UT folks.
At the end of last season we were discussing the format and frequency of our meetings. Some would like it more organized, some laid back and informal. Some want food, some don't. Some want every two weeks and some say once a month is good.
Well, the long, cold, long, cold winter, (did I say it was a long, cold winter?) gave me ample time to come up with a plan that might have something for everyone. Maybe I needed the extra time stuck inside dreaming to come up with this, but here goes.
What if one meeting a month the plan is organized with two to three main topics, (announced ahead of time) and then general discussion. No food available unless you bring something with you.
Two weeks later the meeting is more of an informal meeting, chit-chat, covered dish or we meet at a restaurant (maybe a different one each time). We drop in when we want, sip a tea, or eat and leave when we are ready. No formal program.
This way, we come to the type meeting we want, with or without food and once or twice a month depending on what we feel like.
Everyone will always be welcome to any of them and there will always be time for you to ask the advice or share your successes/challenges with the group.
