What Is #gardenchat
#gardenchat is a Twitter based chat forum where garden enthusiasts from all walks of life connect and interact sharing ideas about their experience growing.
How #gardenchat Connects
In the week leading up to the #gardenchat event a topic is networked on the social networks Facebook, Twitter, Google+, and the official #gardenchat site.
Questions are submitted for our guest host that are answered during the event. Everyone attending the chat are encouraged to share their experience and asking questions. A transcript is saved after each Monday event that can be viewed on the transcript page as well as a PDF that can be downloaded for future reference. Documentation of the topic is a great way to keep the garden experience alive and available for anyone at their convenience.
