Research page:Gardening Seminar:Start your own garden

On this page i am preparing the materials for the Gardening Seminar:Start your own garden - John Eagles

Working on the structure of the seminar

(Notes to myself, JE)
  • Make a logical structure for the seminar, from start to end, divide in sections.
  • Write new texts to introduce each new section.
  • Refer to already existing pages about gardening topics for further study of a section.
  • Don't forget to include podcasts, already existing or new-to-be-made.
  • Find external content, older gardening books, videos, images etc.
  • How to promote on Facebook?
  • Organize to allow comments by students and readers. For this, comments on ERW/FB should be enabled. C & Y are working on this.
