The Database section is now Online Resources with the addition of some good gardening resources, and relocating the career info there.
The inspiration for the change are these great resources for gardeners wanting to increase their knowledge of plants and gardening:
- The American Horticulture Society (AHS) listing of Master Gardener programs by state. These programs are designed to provide intensive horticultural training and volunteer experience to gardeners. This is an excellent opportunity to learn about plants and get community volunteering experience.
- The AHS listing of garden societies, clubs, and organizations includes both regional and national garden groups. Local gardeners are a wealth of gardening information, as well as shared plants.
- National Gardening Association – a non-profit organization dedicated to education, health & wellness, environmental stewardship, community development, and home gardening. Well worth checking out.
I also added a link to Economic Botany magazine, the Society for Economic Botany’s quarterly publication. This archive dates back to 1947, with articles available free in .pdf format. This can be very geeky stuff, but it’s absolutely fascinating information.
