#GroundChat Schedule

Every Friday at 2 pm ET/ 1 pm CT/ 11 am PT

 

Soil — critical for gardening, growing and the planet — is rarely discussed.

#groundchat, a Twitter-based live chat, was created to fill that gap. Every week we discuss  soil-related topics, from soil types to soil’s effect on global climate change to gardening on different soils.

 

With your Twitter account (it’s free), you can join/follow the conversation on #groundchat using  Tchat  or by using the #groundchat hashtag  on Twitter’s search box.

#GroundChat is organized and moderated by Cristina da Silva @CristinaGardens
