    In reply to: Jennifer Lumpkin posted an update Hey @rawillou -- The Green Scheme sounds like a good match for some of the volunteer activities you mentioned. Volunteering will take place on Saturday, March 4th and March 11th (11am - 1pm). I will also have two growing spaces where you can I can grow together in Montgomery County (closer to you). The Arc Farm is always buzzing with activity and they have a CSA (http://www.thearcdc.org/thearcfarm). @dpascal who is also a farmer at The Arc Farm, is also on My Grow Connect! I hope this helps. We can link up next Sunday if you\'re free to start your balcony garden :) View

    Peace Raven — we are in 2019! Just reading through and reflecting on the last few years. looks like you were busy (as we all were) back during our last correspondence. feeling good? 🙂

    Peace Jon — I’ve been getting a lot of folks inquiring about the site and I’m debating on whether or not to shut it down. Just hitting you up to get a sense of whether or not you think it would or could be useful in any way. Thanks — Peace!

    In reply to: Gwen Stembridge posted an update I\'m thinking of planting some winter vegetables/foods and I live in Cleveland, OH. Any recommendations on what might work? I\'m thinking potatoes, garlic, carrots or something but I\'m not sure where to start. Any advice? View

    Hi Gwen — carrots, peas and garlic would be good in the ground for cleveland. spuds and roots like potatoes, ginger and turmeric inside are good for indoor growing and starting. If you are looking for flowers planting bulbs would have been good for October/November — sorry that I’m a bit late but I’m sure we’ve had this convo in person since…[Read more]
