March 15, 2016

After a 4 month break, the ATP podcast is back and we're sharing news about our taking over the National Gardening Association. In this episode, we tell the story of how we came to acquire the NGA, what our hopes and dreams are, and what we're planning to do with it in the short and long term.

WOW indeed - great podcast - thank you!

Anyone else would be overwhelmed with all that is in front of you. It's so cool that you just grab the bull by the horns and press forward.

While it is an honor and privilege for you to serve the gardening community, it's an honor and a privilege to be a part of your gardening community. Thank you.

I typically don't do well with change but I already know that you make -all things change- totally seamless and easy. Thank you.

I'm thankful you will never change - tangents and all Lovey dubby

Congratulations to the Whitinger Family and may God bless you as you start your next book/chapter/path and have so much fun doing it.

It's great to hear your voices again, and BOTH your senses of humor!

Congratulations, Jon, and thanks for administering!

I was browsing Garden .org while listening, until I heard your old server was groaning under the load. Then I checked out toute de suite.

Best wishes for Volume Three of the Whitinger Saga.
And Volumes Four through ???
