Fall and Winter Event Ideas. Feedback appreciated

Trying to put together a fall/winter schedule and would love some feedback and input. 1. the big event will be our Fall Tour and "Backyard Barnyard" half day event, with introductions to suburban and urban gardening, livestock (rabbits, poultry, goats, cows, fish), with brief modules/promos on hydroponic gardening and aquaponic gardening. The tour and workshops will be followed by a cookout and free time for wandering, playing with the animals and asking questions. I'm thinking 10 a.m. to 2…See More

Hi Sam,

Just stopping by to welcome you to the amazing 48days community! 

Little background on me; I’m a long time member here, who truly believes in the 48 days vision and this community. I can truly testify that the power behind this community is a huge reason for my success and business.

So whenever I can, I like to reach out to see who I can help. If you have any questions, or you start feeling overwhelmed right off the bat, because there is just so much great content, discussions, and just lots of great stuff happening, feel free to reach out and let me know! I would love to help guide you here.

Also, many people who come to this site are stuck in career ruts, need help gaining clarity, finding passion, purpose, and real meaning in their lives, careers, and businesses. If you’re ready to take this part of your life to the next level, then join me in one of the newest 48 Days groups, 180 Degrees to Your Calling.

Outside of that, if you have questions, or get stuck with anything, you can always ask me, any of the 48 Days Advisors, and you can always just post a discussion on the home page forum.

Many blessings on your journey, and by all means… Enjoy the adventure!
