    • Thank you buddy. It is great to get these initiatives shared on a podcast. Creates some really great content.

    • Hi David and thank you for listening and commenting. I was hoping my rant would spark some debate.

      The reason I haven’t named the event is because I have not been able to contact the organisers to get there side of the event. I felt it would be a little bit unfair to name said organisation without getting them to reply. I am trying to contact them to put my criticising across so it can be improved.
      Sincere apologies for making you feel a little put out about the generation thing. For me it was an observation that younger generations are not engaging with this event which is very worrying. I’ve often said that the skills and experiences older generations have are being lost which worries me a lot. We need that knowledge and skill if we are all to improve.

      Thank you so much for listening and reaching out. It’s great to hear other point of views too.

      Richard.

    • I intentionally logged into your website to compliment you on your honesty regarding the participants on the seed swap.
      Although I understand some listeners don’t want to hear the message or feel missing out, I think you were very decent in your remarks.

      Those event organisers who feel addressed to, can make out for themselves whether they appreciate the comments or not. If one creates expectations, he should meet them to satisfy the visitors and make the event succesful.

      A a listener (and fan of the show!) I’d rather listen to straightforward reviews than hearing that the event was ‘great’ or ‘awesome’, while this wasn’t the case in your opinion.

    • Hi warren. I would say the timings are a generally rule of thumb much like the instructions on seed packets. What I like to do is sow a few seeds one week then a few more a few weeks later so that the risk of a seed germinating is spread out. I will discuss this on next week’s podcast. Thank you for commenting.
