I've finally done it.

Some of you may be aware that I recently began talking with the city leadership of my community to work toward a goal that I had of offering a free organic gardening class. I've talked about it for a while, and it's something that has been on my mind, but I've finally done it.
Last Saturday, our cities newsletter went out with an ad for my free organic gardening class to teach people the basics of growing food in their yard. I had estimated that it may get sent to 3-5,000 homes, I underestimated a bit. I was told that the actual mail list is somewhere around 6300 homes. As far as the number of people that I think will actually show up... I figure that if 10-20 people show I'll call it a success. Less is fine, as is more; I guess I don't really have to many expectations. If your interested in what I'll be talking about I started another blog for the purpose of outlining my goals and, hopefully in the future, communicating with attendees; you can visit it HERE. If you have any suggestions let me know, any stories about your efforts to spread the word and "Grow the Future".

Sounds great. i am hoping to start more people gardening in my area, running a free class through the council is a great idea, then they can cover insurance, and advertise and you get support. Making note to email them soon. Hope you get lots of people interested.
