Hi folks! In case you haven't noticed, we have a relatively new feature on ATP. It's the gardening calender of events. To find it, go to the menu on the left and click "Goodies", then click "Gardening Calender of Events". Or just click here: http://garden.org/apps/events/
Now, we all know Florida has tons of plant shows and sales so I want to see everyone adding to this. I just added two daylily things, a rose show, and a hibiscus show and sale. And I don't even grow any of those plants! But some of our members do and we want them to know about it. Also, we want tourist dollars!
I know some of you, like me, belong to a botanical garden. Or maybe you belong to a club that holds shows or sales. Maybe you just get the paper like I do and you can copy stuff out of the gardening events thing they have in the home section each week. All of these things are useful to adding to the calendar.
Also, I just want to say that plant shows and sales are so much fun to attend. You can usually find some rare and uncommon stuff. And if it's a club hosting the sale you can often find some real deals. And don't forget to take pictures of everything because you can add them to the Plant Database and earn acorns! Everybody wins! So please keep us, and yourself, in the loop by adding to the new calender of events. And if you can think of way to improve upon it, drop by our thread in the Site Talk forum: The thread "Introducing the local Calendar of Events!"
