I'm doing lots of talks in January about how to make organic vegetable gardening so easy that anyone can do it. If you're interested, perhaps I can set up a talk for SFC members, or I can just post all the talks I'm doing here and invite you to attend.
You plant your spring garden on February 15th. It's only the summer seeds/plants that are damaged by frost.
I'm doing a lot of events and talks in January, if you want to stop by and learn more about how to make your gardening as easy as possible!

Thanks Don! I love the website. I just attended a how to start a community garden seminar at USC at the sustainable futures center. Anyway, I want to start one but when I do we would love to have a speaker! Let me get organized and lets stay in touch. In the meantime I leave you with my website, I am a chef here in Charlotte. I know how to cook the food but am learning how to grow it. Thanks so much!
