What Can “Garden Writers Today” Do For Me?

Posted on Sep 8 2010 - 3:36am by Mike Lieberman

“Garden Writers Today” is a website (www.digplantgrow.com) for garden writers (duh) that’s been created to help the garden writing community.

More importantly, it’s been created to help the readers of gardening websites, which is even more important.

They wrote to me and other garden writers across the web asking, “What Can ‘Garden Writers Today’ Do For Me?”

Since the main reason that I keep this blog is for you to help encourage and inspire you to start growing your own food, I pass along this question to you. What can “Garden Writers Today” do for you?

Lemme know in the comments below, and their staff will check it out.

I will start off by saying that they can do a better job of stressing the importance of growing food through natural and organic methods…but I say that in all of my posts ;-p

In the meantime, be sure to connect with Garden Writers Today on DigPlantGrow and on Facebook.

    Garden Writers can offer their experience, and just may have a trick or 2 that can be of use to me in my own garden

    My seniors always have fond memories of their fire escape gardens. Some even remember their parents doing it. They also would go to the roof for sun and call it tar beach!

    I agree Mike, as a gardener and a garden writer, I always want to know more about organic methods and how I as a homeowner can positively benefit the environment, rather than creating something in my garden that looks nice to my neighbors.

    It's my understanding that homeowners/gardeners are responsible for more of the pollution problems with pesticides and fertilizers than farmers are. And we are responsible for introducing many of the problem invasive plants.

    I'd like to see the horticultural industry leading in changing gardening to be more sustainable. Why are invasive plants still on sale? Garden Writers Today can emphasize some of these issues so that writers have a more cohesive voice on these really important issues and we can start to change the industry.

    Very well stated Alison. I think for a change like that to occur would be huge, but then gardeners and the industry would need to stop taking money and sponsorships from companies like Scott's and Miracle Gro.
