I love going to Garden Writers meetings, I get to see other garden writers, editors and photographers, listen to the latest and greatest in the garden writer’s world. I am, however, ambivalent about receiving goodie bags filled with garden product. The organizers of the GWA meeting emphasized that in exchange for getting these “gifts,” we are obligated to write about them. Some of these products are great, but others…not so much.

With all the negative press out there on global warming, it’s refreshing to read a book that offers solutions and hope. Kristin Ohlson’s “The Soil Will Save Us” covers how scientists, farmers and foodies are healing the soil to save the planet.

Great news on the #groundchat front. Not only did I celebrate #groundchat’s third birthday on March 30, but I also received Trademark approval notice for #groundchat on the same day!
