    • Hi Richard,
      Glad you had a good time at GWL, too. I do recognize some of your comments on the show.

      I returned to The Netherlands on Monday. I am planning to publish one ore two Dicuspecials on GWL. I might even make an English summary to give you, and other English people I have contact with now and then, the opportunity to understand it 😉

      Very excited about your plans in not only growing food, but also letting grow the online community. It would be nice to support your initiatiative, please let me know if I can help you in any way (and don’t feel bad if you think I can’t).
      I consider similar activities in The Netherlands, although this will be somewhere in the future. Since podcasting on gardening is not popular here(!), I’ll perhaps do this in English.

      Discutafel is the bi-weekly Dutch podcast on eco-friendly gardening and permaculture. Every other Thursday. Next episode: June 21. Stay tuned!

      Regards, Ivonne (Discutafel)

      • Hi Ivonne.

        Glad you enjoyed your visit and the podcast too. I felt show was worth a visit.

        So sorry we couldn’t meet up unfortunately our diaries just couldn’t of worked out that way.

        An English version would be an excellent addition and I would happily share it with others in hope to promote your podcast. Gardening podcasts in the uk have only really taken off in the last year I would say.

        My community plans would be worldwide initiative so you are more then welcome to join in and help but we will discuss that in the future.

        Take care and happy podcasting.

        Richard.
