PostSubject: My Introduction.   Sun Jun 06, 2010 2:54 pm

Hello! I am one of two administrators of this site. I have a Ph.D. in molecular biology and genetics and over 20 yrs experience growing native Texas plants, and herb, fruit and vegetable plants. I have served on the board of the Native Plant Society of Texas in the past, for several years, and continue to be involved. In 2004, along with other parent volunteers, students, teachers, and administrators, I designed and helped install an organic fruit and native plant garden, an organic vegetable garden, and a small habitat pond and habitat garden at Roberts Elementary, a local HISD school. We organized the planting, harvesting and classroom education, as a vounteers, for the first two years of it's existence all the while transitioning in other new parent volunteers. We had over 90% of the classrooms participating, and although I am no longer involved, it is continuing strong to this day! I have continued to provide advice and support for other, independent, school habitat and vegetable gardens most recently to a group of dedicated parent volunteers at West University Elementary.

This forum encourages a diversity of viewpoints and experiences, the best way for all of us to learn more about these important topics. We hope that this forum can be a resource for both experienced gardeners and beginners. This forum is not affiliated with any organization. We welcome suggestions of ways to improve the forum.
