Looking for gardeners...
to participate with The Real Dirt’s effort in sharing everything gardening.
We try to focus on the four main categories that matter to us most: Nourish, Beautify, Steward and Serve. In our September issue, we are lucky enough to share an enchanting story by a Master Gardener trainee about nourishing in different ways. We also have an Advanced Master Gardener who wrote an article about native plants of Michigan, which is her passion. These are just two of the articles you’ll find this issue.
The Real Dirt posts stories and articles of all kinds that are plant, tree, or garden related and we need your help. You don’t have to be the best writer. We just need a story based on skill or experience that is relevant to the current time of the year. If you don’t have a good story to tell, maybe you can share some tips with The Real Dirt readers with an informative article (of course it needs to be science based). Or maybe you can attend one of our monthly meetings and would be willing to write a brief article about the meeting? Did you know you can earn volunteer hours for writing for The Real Dirt?
Take a look at some of the past issues to get a better idea, if you like. Our next time in need will be for the November issue. January and March might be tough issues too. It gets tougher in the winter to write about all things gardening, which presents an even greater need for volunteer writers. We will take volunteer writers all year long!
If you are interested at any time, please send an email to the Editor, Lisa Hagerty at LHagerty22512@yahoo.com. Please consider joining us in our writing efforts!
