Toronto Flingers, meet You Grow Girl

You Grow Girl's Gayla Trail
We couldn't have a garden blogging event in Toronto without our city's own You Grow Girl Gayla Trail. With the launch of her blog in 2000, Gayla became one of the very first garden bloggers and she remains one of the most prolific, with a large and loyal readership.

Gayla's words and images are also behind three best-selling books on organic growing for city living (plus a book on garden-good summer libations).

While Gayla can't attend the Fling itself, we're delighted to have arranged an evening with her.

Past Flings have included an informal get-together to talk about blogging. This year, Gayla kicks ours off ever-so-slightly more formally by sharing her thoughts on staying authentic as things around us (and we ourselves) change. Don't think of it as a how-to but as organic food for thought.

We'll have time for Q&As and discussion. Full details are TBD but Saturday evening is pencilled in.

Meanwhile, you might want to stretch your creative muscles by joining in Gayla's Grow Write Guild, her creative writing club for people who love to garden. Fresh inspiration for your best blogging year ever. Happy 2015!
