Howdy, Robert! Welcome to HOMEGROWN! My name is Jennifer, and I'm the flock tender here (site updater and tweaker, feeder and waterer of content, helper of Cornelia). I love it that you’ve just joined the HOMEGROWN crew and you’re already such a part of the community. Thanks for sharing that fantastic video. Anything else you want to share, please do! We’ve got a new photo gallery for gardening bragging rights called Hey, I Grew That! and we’d love it if you kept us updated on your adventures in aquaponics by posting to our member blog, The Stew. It’s A-OK to re-post here if you’ve got an existing blog elsewhere.

 

You can always find the latest additions to the site at the very top of the homepage, and if you’ve got questions, don't hesitate to leave a comment on my profile page or email me at wehunt@farmaid.org. I’m so glad you found us and hope you feel right at home!
