GGPR: Do you see important connections with the role you play in our community and our future on this planet? Would you like others in our community to know more about your efforts?
Heidi: Absolutely! I created the Facebook group this past April because we are gardening enthusiasts and wanted to connect with other local enthusiasts and focus a bit more on fruit/vegetable gardens. We always start our plants from seed, but we plant more than we need to make sure our seedlings survive. Once we know we have what we need we like to give away our other seedlings instead of them just going to waste. Once the garden gets started we usually have too much produce and again would rather share than go to waste.
There was a much larger interest in the Facebook group than I originally thought. We do have a lot of members, but I would like to see more posts and definitely more sharing of ideas, plants and produce. It’s still new so hopefully it’ll grow in that direction!
