Over the past three years I have been lucky enough to be a member of GardenComm’s “Power Circle” focused on blogging. I didn’t even know what a Power Circle was when I signed up, but it turns out it is a group of people to support you and push you to be better. We have been doing this for almost three years and I am sad to see it winding down. Keeping a gardening blog active is tough work and these folks are the best.
Amy Whitney blogs at Small Garden News and she is the Southeast USA. Her blog concentrates on organic food gardening and she has two books that you will want to check out — one on Fall Garden Planning and the other is a Garden Planner and Notebook.
Duane Pancoast blogs at The Geriatric Gardener. He covers issues surrounding aging in the garden. He just published a book on that same topic and you should be able to order that soon.
Gail Pabst co-writes her No Farm Needed blog with her daughter. Check out their online store which features their pressed flower crafts from flowers that they both grow.
Gerald Simcoe‘s web site is GeraldSimcoe.com. He studied horticulture at Longwood Gardens, but now spends his time painting. Check out his floral still lifes — from flowers grown in his own garden.
Kathy Jentz’ blog is the Washington Gardener. She writes for and oversees both the blog and the printed version of the magazine. Kathy knows and covers all things gardening in the Washington DC area. She has been our leader of the Power Circle for the past three years so we are indebted to her organization and prompting for our regular chats.
Marianne Willburn writes at Small Town Gardener and is often found in her garden with her dog and chickens in Lovettsville, VA. You may also know her book Big Dreams, Small Garden as well.
