Mark your calendars!

On June 8th Joy Creek Nursery will be holding a workshop called, "How to Form a Garden Community Through Blogging: A Workshop with Scott Weber [of Rhone Street Gardens] and Friends."

Have you ever wondered what the point of blogging was?  Guess what, there are lots of great reasons for gardeners to blog!  You can use it to show family and friends what you've been up to in your garden, or just to keep a record of your garden from year to year.  Blogging is also a great way to meet fellow gardeners in your area...and around the world.  Join some area bloggers as they discuss what spurred them to start blogging and what the benefits have been as a result.

The friends will be Loree of Danger Garden, Jane of MulchMaid, Ann of Amateur Bot-ann-ist, and myself. If you are reading this, you are a part of that gardening community mentioned above and we'd love to see you there! And if you have friends or partners who don't understand why you blog, drag them along. If you've never been out to Joy Creek, this is a great excuse to do some shopping or see their wonderful display gardens.

If that's not reason enough, Joy Creek serves cookies and coffee on the weekends. Caffeine + Cookies + Plants = Awesomeness. Please join us!


  1. I so wish I lived closer! Would love to attend this. I'm in the very beginning stage of planting up my own blog (so inspired by you and Scott, Loree, Ann, Jane, Nan, Margaret, etc. etc.) Good luck with the workshop!

  2. Yay! I'm so happy you're starting up a blog. I wish you lived closer too, so I could see your textiles in person. They are gorgeous!

  3. Thanks so much Heather!

  4. I would love to come, but I can't find a link on the page to sign up for the class. Any idea how to register? Thanks so much for your blog; I enjoy it tremendously.

    I love that you are all doing this! Wishing you a wonderful day! I would come to cheer you on, except that I offered to give my neighbor a day off from running her espresso stand. I hope you'll blog all about it ;)

  6. Hi Gayle, I'm so sorry--my commenting system is wonky right now and I didn't get alerted that you'd commented. If you didn't see Ricki's comment above, there's no sign up for the workshop--just show up! I'll look for you. :)
