I enjoy growing veggies and would like to learn more about fruit trees. We currently have a 10' x 20' raised bed that I have been growing veggies in for two years, and are slowly working on creating a new garden for squash and other sprawlers. I enjoy fostering animals and currently have 2 dogs and 4 cats, although that varies depending on who finds me - kittens just seem to leap out everywhere :). My husband enjoys tinkering with things and the outdoors - he has really helped with building the beds and added a couple of rain barrels to help with water. We both enjoy the classes at the Guild and hope to have chickens soon.
Thanks so much for your interest in the Tour de Coops! We definitely could use a last-minute addition, as we've had a couple of drops. If you would, please send the following info to me at Nicholas [at] Hepnova (dot) com as soon as is convenient :
1) Street address of your coop
2) Phone and email contact information
3) Whether or not you have an HOA that we need to contact and if so, their contact info
4) Any special rules that you'd like visitors to follow when at your site
5) A brief description of how and why you became interested in urban farming and any anecdotes you'd like to provide about your coop / garden setup.
Thanks again, very much looking forward to hearing from you soon!

Hi Julie, thanks for the post. I have actually been thinking of doing an herbal class :o)
I wanted to include common herbs that can be used for cooking as well as for medicine! So many of the culinary herbs have such wonderful healing properties and are pretty easy to grow. I'll check and see what I can come up with. If you have any herbal questions, feel free to email me :o)
I just saw your comment on my class. I'm learning to follow discussions and such so I know when people leave comments. I'm headed to the extension office in the morning to pick up some publications. I thought I could print them from their website, but I guess not. If so, they can show me how to do that when I'm down there.
We need to talk about the hands on demonstration(s) with Doreen. We'll have to have it approved by the board and then put on the calendar.
See you soon,
p.s. can I compost bread and whole eggs? a friend brought them to me.
i picked a couple heads of cabbage last night and made some cole slaw. cabbage is nice and sweet this year, im going to make some kraut out of some of them in a week or so. the rabbits are eating good on the carrots i planted also. i just planted some yellow summer squash and green beens last week
