Hi from Central Wyoming

Hi from Central Wyoming

Post  MichaelR on 8/14/2018, 5:00 pm

My name is Michael and we're now living in central Wyoming.

I've been involved in Square Foot Gardening since the early 1980's for my own family's gardens. I also spent many, many years helping others to set up family gardens and/or community gardens with help directly from Mel. Never did get my instructor certification back when it first became available, didn't need it by those I was helping.

There is emerging a great local interest in more formal square foot gardening workshops and courses, and the instructor certification is going to be required for some of these.....so, I just started that process.

Looking forward to sharing as we proceed.

Michael

Hello from Central Wyoming!

Post  SFGHealthCoach on 9/18/2018, 4:21 pm

Michael, on behalf of the SFGF we are thrilled to have you working towards completing your requirements for Instructor Certification!  I especially enjoyed our time on the phone yesterday during the Coaching Call.  Stay on track and we all look forward to learning more about and seeing photos of The Earth Mother Renewal Project, school garden programs for the entire state of Wyoming and all of your ambitious projects.

It is especially heartwarming to have learned more about your friendship with Mel and the projects that occurred during those times.  We're all missing him, but are all a part of his legacy.

YISFG,
Amie

Thank Annie

Was a true pleasure speaking with you as well.

Even more progress on those projects today ... very positive ones at that. Not at liberty to share yet, but I will.

Here's a hint of what we've established here:

SFG Instructor Certification Package Submitted

Post  MichaelR on 9/19/2018, 4:20 pm

Finished the Study Guide a little after 3am this morning and just got the package emailed off to Amie and Belinda.

If only more of the programs and projects that I'm responsible for were, for me at least, that relatively easy. I've been doing SFG for almost 40 years - I would like to hope that I've learned something along the way!
