Sounds like an exciting venture and I will be curious to watch the transition. I've never heard of Garden.org but did go check out the site. Looks very informative. Just to ease a bit of a niggle: will our Plant Lists transfer over when the two merge? That is one of the more important tools I use on ATP.
I want to live in a world where the chicken can cross the road without its motives being questioned.

Congratulations! I have perused NGA from time to time and thought there was some good info but it obviously needed attention and a lot more resources...which it will now have. Looks like a perfect marriage to me Thumbs up

I am a strong believer in the simple fact is that what matters in this life is how we treat others. I think that's what living is all about. Not what I've done in my life but how I've treated others.

I got to get some of that energy.
Appreciate the heads up.

Also happy to read that there is attention to bringing children into the fold. I will have to check out the other site for granddaughter who has already won blue ribbons for produce when ahe was 5 and 6.

Often thought there should be forum on the traditional adult gardening sites like ATP and DG that the kids can link with...photo contests for them., etc
Don't squat with yer spurs on!

People try to turn back their "odometers." Not me. I want people to know 'why' I look this way. I've traveled a long way and some of the roads weren't paved
