NJ-Metro NY Plant Club?


I am thinking of putting something like a club together for the people of NJ and Metro NY.

My idea is for something, not like a traditional club at this point, but more of a mailing list. My thought was to put together an email list of area people who are interested in plants. What we would do is send out a message to other members of the list when we have a particular plant we are looking to swap or sell, or if there is a particular plant we are looking for. We would give members of the list the first chance to buy, sell or swap said plants. This network would be a means of contact for all local plant enthusiasts.

I would love to see this transition from the designed network into more of a traditional club. While I think a traditional style club could happen, the network would be a great way to gauge interest, while limiting the initial amount of commitment.

Please let me know what you think, and if you are interested.

Mike

I spoke to George Willms about this last night, and he is in as well. I think I might be able to talk to a couple more people and get them involved.

Excellent Andrew! We need to get a few more people involved for this to be worthwhile . I am going to talk to a few of the plant people at our club and see if they are in.

I am surprised we haven't gotten more responses! People are always clamoring for a club! They always want plants! Now we are trying to put something together and ...!

Come on guys! Get involve on the ground floor!

Mike

Hey Mike! I may be the newbie here, but Connecticut is 1/3rd of the NY Metro tri-state area! Please think about us too. If we can hop on the train to work in Manhattan, surely we can't be that far away. (Buck, we've not "met" but you might want to pipe in on this one - you're Connecticut too!)

I've had tons of riccia and stuff that I'd be happy to send someone if it was not too far away, even better if they can just hop over an pick it up.

Thanks.

I'd be in as soon as I graduate and move back to NYC
But I think I'd attend things in the city only cause I hate driving in NJ
The roads are so confusing, got lost there too many times while driving back home

Well, you are OK for now, as I said, we can start as an email list, and then work from there. However, I have to be honest, I don't see myself chugging into Manhattan very often...

Everyone should have everyone else's email! Additional members email addresses will be sent out via the new network. I hope we can continue to have people join us!

I hope to have some plants to offer to members of the network by the end of next week!

Mike

Mike,

On the Board this group comes under NJ. No problem, nothing against NJ (except the tolls when I drive to the beach), but I wonder if we could have a NJ-NY-metro section? Perhaps yet another subsection would be inconvenient? I was thinking of posting some items such as water quality report and such that might be useful to the people on our mailing list.
