The Gardener's Forum has had a lot of high points and low points, and even disappeared from the web twice so I can never say who was here first. Our current member roster begins on August 22, 2002 when I decided to try again.....
I know that we have many members who eventually found their way back home, but on August 23 member number seven decided to stick it out one more time and went through the process of joining my forum one more time. For that I will always be grateful!
Even though his post count has only earned him a "first" gold bar, he is a Master Gardener who has consistently and continually been here to help our members resolve their plant problems and solve their mysteries of what they have growing
in their gardens and homes. Why? No glitter, no glory.... He just enjoys helping people grow better!
On August 23, 2002, Alan K Hart rejoined The Gardener's Forum as our seventh member and has made the world a better place ever since! After five years of selflessly helping our member's gardens grow and flourish, I think that today it is about time to acknowledge all his help and good work! Thank you Alan! You are the personification of the whole "true" reason that the internet and web were formed... to share information and to help those in search of answers.
You have my heartfelt thanks for helping me make our forum become what it is.
I salute you and toast to you, and declare August 23 to be "Alan's Day" at the Gardener's Forum. Thank you Alan.... You have made the world a better place!
