Peer-to-Peer Garden Tour

Register before Dec 1, 2022 to be part of the new RCMG Peer-to-Peer virtual garden tour in 2023.

For one of the RMCG monthly meetings in 2023 we are going to try something NEW: a Peer-to-Peer Virtual Garden Tour. Our hope is that this will help us to learn more about each other, our gardens, and our gardening experiences.


What is a Peer-to-Peer virtual garden tour?

One the surface, this will look much like any other monthly meeting that RCMG hosts, except the guest speaker will be your peer Master Gardener volunteers, who will share a few images and sentences about their gardening experience from 2022. It's a slideshow of our stories.


For example, you might show pictures of a new garden that they planted or a new type of plant that you grew. You might show pictures of perfect produce or gardens gone horribly wrong. Maybe you saw a new or unknown insect, bird, tree, or weed and want help identifying it. These are all educational moments from our yards and gardens and they are worth sharing!


Suggestions

  • Insect/wildlife sighting

  • Insect/disease damage

  • Insect/disease management practices

  • New plants

  • Garden harvests

  • New garden or container design

  • Epic fails and amazing successes
