Monarch Gardens, my new native prairie garden coaching business, will be making some appearances. You've got a couple chances to talk to me in person over the next week--and I promise you good conversation and lots of helpful info, among other goodies. I may even wear cologne.
Lincoln Earth Day
Party at Antelope Park
Our booth is right across from the farmer's market. Can't miss it. 80 vendors will be there!
Spring Affair Plant Sale
Lancaster Event Center
Friday 4/27, 6-9pm (special preview party)
Saturday 4/28, 9-4pm
Our booth is in the front row facing the plants. Biggest plant sale in the Midwest! It gets crazy. Thousands of people.
Here's what you'll find at our booth:
-- Plants for sale, cheap (Earth Day only)
-- Native plant seeds
-- Fine art photograph prints
-- My Nebraska garden memoir: Sleep, Creep, Leap
-- Information on monarch butterflies, including how to raise them
-- Lists of the best native plants for wildlife, and why natives are so important
-- How to grow chemical free and often carefree
-- And maybe, if we get real lucky and the southern winds are strong, monarch eggs. Remember, milkweed is not a weed, which is why I call it wilkmeed.
If you're at Spring Affair you could hire me for a bit to walk around and pick out some good natives. Ahem.
In June I'll be presenting again on native Nebraska wildflowers at Finke Gardens. Hope to see you soon!
What a cool surprise this morning when I opened my Amazon Affiliates email and it was featuring... you! That's never happened to me before - seeing a promotion from someone I've actually heard of. Anyhoo, the new book sounds terrific. Just popped over to say congrats. :))
What?? Which book? I don't even know why I'd be featured. Geeze. Thanks! I think?
Cool...you are really "going for it", marketing-wise. I did that initially in 1995, but not like you are...and I will soon again "go for it", like never before. Though I don't need the work.
Wish I could be there, near the place of my birth, to see your engagements!
Keep us informed how it all goes.

Hmm. What kind of cologne?
David--Yoda says do or do not, there is not try. And yet, even these small steps can be pricey (business cards, booth fees, banner). Gotta try something! I DO need the work. But I couldn't do design work at this point, maybe not even maintenance. Fly back to Lincoln--we'll drink some milkweed nectar.
I see, the proverbial dog and pony show. Remember, there is no such thing as a stupid question. hehe.
I few things I've found that attract some interest. Have something the men can 'handle' or examine. Like a tool, hot pepper, some macho thing. For women I asked my wife and she said anything with butterflies like jewelry. Maybe have a drawing for a free coaching to gather interest and names.
Mr. S.--Whatever kind you like? Wink wink?
Greg--I like the cut of your jib. Macho thing. Sledgehammer? I have to bring one anyway. And for the ladies I'll have my charming wife.
I wish I could Benjamin! have fun.
