I’m rather stunned by the response so far to Preserving Traditions. After about a month, we’ve got something like 40 people on the mailing list, and 25 people signed up for 20 spots at the first event. The group’s had three unsolicited mentions in local publications, and one of those was from someone I don’t even know. :)
People are asking me for wait lists, and running events more often, and I’ve gotten a great response on the idea of pick-and-pack parties (where we work together to pick and then can or freeze fruits and veg through the summer). I’ll be doing a longer post on that in a few days…the cool thing is, you can pick, or pack, or even make lunch for the pick-n-packers, and come away with a share of the haul.
Whew. This is…a lot! Taking off a lot faster than I’d thought it would. Must not burn out…must not burn out…
A question: Do you want me to keep posting updates here, or is posting them over at Preserving Traditions sufficient?
