looks like there are 3 SFG groups on Facebook

Post  Judy McConnell on 1/2/2015, 9:22 am

For those of you on Facebook:  Which SFG group do most of you belong to? Or do you belong to all 3 (or more?)

I have started using Facebook at last, and I do not belong to any SFG there. From my usage of FB, I feel that the Forum I have here is all I need. there is a huge body of knowledge contained here in the Search Feature that can be accessed at any time and keep me occupied for all the winter months I am not able to get outside.

I will be interested to hear others feelings.

I do belong to a FB BTE Group which is not SFG.

There are actually more than three.

LOL full disclosure - I run the Square Foot Gardening 4 U Facebook page, so I obviously use that.

I have also "liked" the Foundation page (not the one with 599 users but the one with 71,000+) , the Square Foot Gardening Health Coach - really all the ones that other Certified Instructors have started that I know about. AND Belinda who runs the CI program has Home Gardens to Go which is also about SFG.

I would love to "like" this Forum on my Facebook page, but I'm not sure which button to click. Embarassed I'm FB "friends" with Belinda so I see her posts.

Kim and I have recommended the forum to one of the FB SFG groups and I have copied links of posts here into other FB pages.  The other FB page I follow a lot is 
https://www.facebook.com/groups/144745362329424/  A lot of us use containers and that is what this system is about.  I just substitue MM for Larry's Mix.

I don't like using FB because I can't search for vaguely remembered information.

I'm hooked up to these on Facebook.
Square Foot Gardening
Square Foot gardening the simple way
Raised Beds.
I'll hook up to just about any where I'm able to retrieve info.
I may look at 100% of info, however, only 1 0r 2 % may sink in.
Seriously tho, I'm finding more uses the Raised Bed group...
Eventually I'll have more.

I use Kim and Planet Natural as garden related news feed.  Other than that FB is for family and friends keeping contact.  For garden conversation I come here.

Yes. Whenever we are able we do mention the Forum. It is by far the best source of SFG-related info. On FB we need to cover a broader variety of methods and topics.

Kay was the one who originally posted the link. It showed up in my reply because I quoted from her. Very Happy

I don't care who gets credit for the link as long as it is helpful to somebody.
