Guest Post by Stacey of @growingSpaces
We were fortunate last summer to come upon a great community of
gardeners on Twitter that gets together once a week on Monday nights at
9pm EST for an event called #gardenchat. #gardenghat is presented by Bren of BGgarden.com
and includes hundreds of well-educated professional and hobby
gardeners from around the country. Sometimes overwhelming and always
fun, this one hour Twitter chat is fast paced and packed full of
information. Luckily for all of us, transcripts of each #gardenchat
are made available shortly after each event, so attendees and those who
couldn’t make it can scan through, click links, read resources, and
make new connections. The other good news is that this one night event
has expanded to a ’round the clock forum for sharing all things
gardening, so we get to participate in the community on an on-going
has single-handedly changed our Twitter account from a menagerie of
disconnected follows and tweets to a vibrant place to share and exchange
with the gardening community. The transformation has been truly amazing
and we are forever grateful.
So, it is with great joy that we announce our first opportunity to host a #gardenchat and during the most exciting time of year for gardeners – SPRING! Next week on Monday, March 12th at 9pm EST we’ll
be sharing about spring in the greenhouse, giving tips on how to get
started gardening early and hearing how everyone else’s gardens are
doing (because we know you’re all dying to share!). We have a host of
how-to videos and blog posts to share on spring gardening and we plan to
put a fun photo slide show or two together to show how our greenhouses
are growing. If you don’t have a greenhouse yet, but are curious how
this whole thing works, this is the night for you. If you have a
greenhouse and loads of experience, we would love your input and advice.
If you don’t plan on ever having a greenhouse, but are interested in
getting plants in the ground as soon as possible. You’ll want to join us
for helpful tips from the community on what you can do. We’re so very
honored to have this opportunity and can’t wait to catch up with #gardenchat friends both old and new.
Care to join us, but don’t know how to get started? The good news is that Bren has put together step by step instructions on how to participate.
#gardenchat is definitely an opportunity to network and learn that you don’t want to miss! To learn more visit The #gardenchat Website and follow @TheGardenChat on Twitter. See you then.
