I'd like to introduce myself

Post  sustainable stacy on 3/23/2016, 12:06 am

Hi there all.  My name is Stacy and I'm from Nimrod, Oregon on the McKenzie River.  I'm currently taking the SFG certification course and am new to the SFG method.  I'm currently converting my raised bed garden to an SFG and am very excited to be here.  I hope to spread the SFG method locally, especially to our local McKenzie Schools. happy hi

Hi Stacy. Welcome from Atlanta, GA! Glad you've joined us...

Sounds like a great plan! More & more schools are getting on-board with having gardens on-property for the kids to learn & supplement the kitchen.

Hi there

Post  Mimi2 on 4/10/2016, 9:49 pm

Hi Stacey, Sounds like fun. Please let us know how your work with the schools goes. I am in my second year of square foot gardening with the kids. The neighbourhood kids love tasting our fresh veggie an berries two. I have a copy of the SFG for Kids book that I found very useful in terms of educating the kids, and getting them involved. I hope you enjoy this journey. I certainly have!
