Show your appreciation for #groundchat!

Thank you for your participating in our weekly #groundchat. I hope that you enjoy them, and that they provide you with ongoing value.

I certainly enjoy presenting, as well as finding new guest hosts that provide quality, up-to-date information.

I am committed to maintaining the high quality that you have come to expect of #groundchat. 

At the same time, delivering the weekly #groundchat comes at a cost.

  • There is the cost of maintaining the #groundchat page on the www.therealgardener.com
  • There is the cost of my time — dozens of hours each month — to get the #groundchat just right.
  • There are also the countless hours that I spend sourcing new guest hosts.
  • And there is the opportunity cost of a day of my time, so that I am available to deliver it well.


If I were to bill clients for the preparation and delivery of a single #groundchat, the cost would be in hundreds of dollars.

Groundchat is free on Twitter, and afterwards you can also access the transcripts on The Real Gardener website for free.

I recognize some of you aren’t in a position to donate and support me, and that’s OK. If #groundchat has value for you, I want you be here and join us in the conversation.

At the same time, many of you receive significant value through learning new ideas and blowing cobwebs off old ideas.

What I ask for in return is your support.

Please consider making a supporting contribution to help me keep delivering the high quality of programming you have come to expect. What that amount is, I leave to you to decide; think of the value, and make a contribution that you feel is fair.
