Re: kittys sales and aphids

The subject has been raised in the past.  It's my understanding that the
county greenhouses are in full use, but that's not the real issue.  True
commitment from volunteers is not an easy thing to come by.  We've had
discussions on this issue before.  People that volunteer don't just
volunteer as MGs - many of them are all over the place plus family and work
commitmnets.  We sometimes have trouble keeping some people committed who
have promised to work in certain of our Display Gardens.  Without solid
performance there with more MGs looking for something, the Hort Ed is not
going to extend us further.  In fact, a small nursery had been formed before
I came along, but those who had installed it refused to tend it.  So he had
it yanked out and the plants dispersed around the grounds.  When he finds
someone or a group of someones who prove they can be counted on, he's happy
to allow new projects, which is why we now have a nursery again.  A
greenhouse would be, as you said, use of someone else's facility, so a sort
of distant project, not easily maintained or controlled.  The University
will not allow us to have one on our own grounds.  If they would, we have
had opportunities for free structures, but can't make use of them.
