Our New GNN Community Project: Good Gardening

GNN’s new managing editor Andy Corbley (pictured above in his garden in Vergiate, Italy) is starting a new discussion group around one of the most popular and healthful hobbies of all–gardening.

Every Friday, he will pose a new topic so that everyone can share tips, best practices and photos. This week, Andy wants to hear your views on the most fundamental of gardening hacks: amending the soil.

Post a picture of yourself in your garden between now and next Friday, and we might add it to the photo collage in the Good Gardening banner image—either by email ([email protected]) or on our Facebook page where we’ve posted this…
