What's Happening

From the beaches of Queensland –
Organic Gardener.com

There’s a new website in town, and I’m one of their hired guns – or featured writers.  The otheOgbannerr featured writer is known to Rant readers as Commonweeder because she’s a frequent commenter here but in real life she’s Massachusetts gardenwriter Pat Leuchtman.  So far, Pat’s educated us about Growing Raspberries and Growing Organic Herbs

I’ve had fun learning about Organic Farming Internships all over the world, and about Master Composters in the U.K.  Then I HAD to write How to Find a Gardening Blog Near You.  On basic gardening topics, there’s How to Water Your Garden, The Virtues of Clover…and Hand-Weeding, and Organic Fertilizers. 

Now what can I tell you about the people behind Organic Gardener?  That they’re giving us total freedom in the topics I cover and what I have to say, and that’s HUGE.  Also that they’re located in Brisbane, in the magical Land of Oz.   Pat and I are kinda hoping they’ll fly us over for the Christmas party.

    Kudos on mentioning clover and its importance. We have a patch in the garden that is much used by rabbits, bees and a few fawns. With the decline in bees one would think that clover and its benefits would be mentioned more in garden talks and blogs.

    Thanks for giving this humble plant (weed for some snobs) a much needed look over.

    Happy Gardening to all!

  2. Hey Susan- Thanks for giving us the heads up on this new sight! It looks like it will be great and just packed with information.

    My only complaint is that there is not an “about” page telling who exactly is behind the website.(If there is a page like that, I did not find it easily.) If it weren’t for the fact that I “know” you, I would be hesitant to browse the site and accept the information. They do have great info on you and Pat, but it would be nice if they added a background page on THEM so that viewers would feel like they get to “know” who is behind the site. You know what I mean? It would help build trust with new viewers. Otherwise, you don’t feel like you know who you are dealing with.

    But other than that, I can’t wait to see what other info it provides!

    Cool! Looks like a very informative site. Are there plans for a messageboard or anything? Organic Gardening community sites seem in short supply.
