Nashville Area Aquatic Gardener's Club (and starting your own!)

I'd like to start a group of local folks in the Nashville area to swap plants and old war (algae) stories I've been pm'ing a few folks here on the forum, and it seems like there could be enough interest for a group meeting every two or three months. If you're interested, here's the yahoo group link: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/NAAGC/

I've also got a Craigslist ad up in the Nashville site, and plan on seeing if Aquatic Critter would be willing to let me put a sign up in their store too, whenever I have time to drive down there.

Thanks!

I'd like to note that after one day, the club already has 7 members, including myself. Placing a Craigslist ad was a great idea! If you don't have a local club in your metropolitan area, get to it!

The AGA will gladly send you free TAGS, PAMs, and other stuff for your first meeting. Also, we have a page on starting and maintaining a local club on our web site:

Hey eyebeatbadgers I'm interested. Funny that you posted this, as I was talking to a member on another forum about doing the same thing. I live about 5 minutes from the Aquatic Critter.

Well, we had our first meeting tonight. lol Only me, eyebeatbadgers (dan) and his wife showed up. I'm not complaining though because I left with alot of plants thanks to Dan. People really missed out on some good plants.

If there is a local fish club, you should check for interest among their group as well - that's how our group started.

I think there is a reef club for the salt water folks, but that's it. Good idea though. I guess I could do some more research on that.

Well, the meeting was small, but everyone got lots of plants, just like I promised!

To those of you who missed it, I had a good sampling of everything I grow up for grabs last night, and Brad won the grand prize!

Hah, I would like to join if it's not a problem, All my family lives in Nashville so I'm there at least once or twice a month, but a real reason to go home is better than none at all, so count me in Just book the meetings 2-3 weeks in advance if possible, and on a sat... u kno what, just consult me about everything... just kidding, but on a serious note, I would like to meet up with everyone to learn more and see what's out there.

Check out the link to the Yahoo group, you can catch all the latest news there. I'm planning the next meeting to be in January, I'll probably host this one.
