....

....

UPDATE: 15th Jan ’09

names are now officially being taken for the first garden group gig.The list below was as an expression of interest…. please go to the post below and get yer name on πŸ˜‰

http://blog.doneganlandscaping.com/2010/01/15/the-garden-groups-first-adventure/

So it was sometime last year that the suggestion came in to set a garden group up…. and I did… but not a whole lot happened with it for so many varying reasons… but thats another story and this is 2010.

...

...

It’s a new year and it’s time I got things grooving in this department…..

With that in mind I am setting the date for our first gig on Saturday 30th January or the 6th February 2009. [recent email tells me to await confirmation from venue and for our guide/ host – however this will be more exact/ finite in the next day/s or so….. bear with me πŸ˜‰ appreciated in advance]

I have a few places and people in mind as a first meeting…. but you reading this may have somewhere that the group could/ should visit – if so go ahead and make yourself famous.

Other than that it is a case of numbers…. If you are interested pop your name down below and watch this space for more info.

My thinking is that it is [for the moment] would entail a personalised tour of a grounds or gardens [that would be interesting!!!….] especially for us! Depending on the how the first goes and suggestions come in then maybe we can see if and how direction changes. Of course no money would be required and maybe if weather was good enough you may bring a packed lunch and we could have a picnic…. I’m waiting for confirmation at this moment in time but should have an answer back in the next few days….. again it’s a little of a numbers game as well…. slightly vague [?] but gardens made good craic is the idea….

As I said in the first post

are you interested in the greeny garden outdoors kinda thing but don’t want to fall asleep within the first 7 minutes seconds ….? ;)

what if we became the hippest bunch of jimmedy crickets ever to cross the green line ?

A bit like the Dublin Twook Club crossed with the photobloggers, but different-ish ;)

All of the great bits of green and horticulture – except in a pair of jeans and a t-shirt [if thats what you like to wear ;) ]

Garden Group Gets Grooving…

c'mon.....

c'mon.....

I put out a post 9 days ago to see if people would be interested in a garden group…. ?

The response was great – but most replies came in via email. Which is still cool. But like all of you… theres that whole thing called work and more important – I’d also like this to be as much fun for me as for you πŸ˜‰ It needs to run very simply and very smoothly.

So here’s the deal.

  • No more emails. One simply leaves a comment and we can thrash it out if required from there.
  • I’ll set up a GARDEN GROUP category [right hand side of your screen].Β  All notices will appear there
  • there’ll be enough notice before the next gig/ meet/ proposal so just pop onto the blog and check the latest news or update on that post
  • We’re also on Facebook under GROUP’s as ‘peter donegan landscaping weblog garden group

If companies wish to offer free products, visits or venues [any offers acceted]Β  get in touch and I’ll make sure we do a decent interview, review and post on the blog as best as I can. I’m open to offers πŸ™‚

Once again – I want this to be free and fun. Lets keep it simple and have a good a bit of craic…. maybe even a few pints πŸ˜‰

WATCH THIS SPACE…. πŸ˜‰

Got an idea, suggestion or recommendation….? leave a comment or send an email to info [at] doneganlandscaping [dot] com

my thinking is that:

  • this costs zero money
  • whether qualified or you simply ‘like that flower’ – it’s all good
  • we meet about once every 6 weeks
  • its as much about fun as it is interesting
  • everyone has a say in what we do

what do you need:

  • an ability to smile
  • a likening for the colour green in any shape or form

after that – pop an email to info [at] doneganlandscaping [dot] com or leave a comment below.

If the interest is there – great stuff ! If not – I tried and I’ll probably go for a pint on Friday evening πŸ˜‰

UPDATE:

update on the garden group

leave a comment and say hi πŸ˜‰
