Hi Susan, thanks for the welcome. Things have been a little crazy this last in Bismarck. Summer long flood and wind storms kept us busy. My crews spent most of the year cleaning up two parks. Over 1,300 trees lost in those two areas. How have you been? I have been out of the loop with many friends and hope to change that next year. I am looking forward to a "normal" year. Wishing you and your family a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
Hi Susan - I was having fun poking around the Grove and found the NUCFAC projects site. Saw that Georgia Extension developed some UF training products for master gardeners. I've been discussing doing just that here is WA. Do you know of the products? or someone who I could contact about them?
We are excited about the Grove, and love the bags :)
Susan, Thanks for the welcome note. It's going well here in New Mexico. Spending some time to set-up our site in prep. for the launch on Monday. Thanks for making this program such a success in your state and the south. We're excited about the opportunities it will provide all of us in the west. Hope all is well for you. Have a great weekend! - Lance
Ha! Found it, I'm officially "In" now. Thanks for the note. I was actually looking around on The Grove because we are discussing social media at the next Great State to Serve meeting (the group that is facilitating the Employee Satisfaction work with the Office of Customer Service). We'll be talking about Facebook, Twitter and YouTube; The Grove will be a great addition. Can I send you what we get together to get your opinion?
RPI is awesome, we're having a lot of fun so far! And Congrats on your recent news!
Susan...its official. We will be hosting volunteers for a tree planting project on our campus. The event is part of the Gwinnett Great Day of Service campaign in conjunction with HandsOnAtlanta. Our project will take place on Friday October 1 from 9am to 1pm. Depending on the number of volunteers we hope to plant 50 trees in various areas of the campus. We plan to have an early morning educational event sponsored by Horticulture as well as the planting effort. Please tell your folks to visit the HandsOnAtlanta site to sign up......I look forward to seeing you in October.
Hey Susan, thank you so much. I so appreciate the poster. I look forward to seeing it on display everyday. I learned so much @ the round table. I do have my Level 1A Certification from the GA Soil & Water Commission, so some of that was repetitive, but I enjoy hearing other people talk about it & its importance. the part about Oxford was the part that I was unaware of. Now I'm an official fan w/ the picture of the Tree. I'm not very social online so navigating this site is a bit time consuming & often have a hard time getting to where I want to go when i want to go there, but I think I may be able to recruit some folks to sign up. My address is 170 Nowhere Rd Athens Ga, 30601. look forward to receiving the picture & chatting w/ you in the future. Greg Denzin
Thanks for your kind words! I'd love to have you come back for a visit. You are certainly welcome anytime. And I appreciate your hard work and dedication in shepherding the Georgia Urban Forestry Program. That has to be a major challenge.
Funny that you should ask...I just got executive approval to host a Gwinnett Great Day of Service project on our campus....and it will be planting trees!!! We have almost finished a roads, sidewalks and parking lot project. We should be done by the end of September. We had to remove some trees during this effort so now its time to put them back and add more...much more....we are hoping 152 ish more. Still gathering together funding for the ffort...got my fingers crossed. Come join us in October, we plan to tie the event into Tree Campus as well!!
