Everything Old is New Again – Garden Mentors® 2.0February 17, 2013
Welcome to the new & vastly improved Garden Mentors® website. We’ve been cultivating this seedling project for several months, and today we’re thrilled to share it — shoots, roots, leaves, blooms, fruits and all!
Briefly, here are a few of the newer features you’ll find on our site:
- Garden Help Blog integrated seamlessly into Garden Mentors®
- Twitter & Blog headlines from our homepage
- Mailing list sign up at the bottom of every page
- News & Events sidebars to let you know where we’re speaking next
- Social networking & RSS links at the bottom of every page
- Free gardening tips on the top of almost every page
- A larger, updated & more refined store
- An updated Portfolio
- and so much more!
Where our old website was hand-coded HTML (dating back a decade) with an ancillary six year old WordPress blog, today’s site is an all-in-one modernized WordPress wonderland that wouldn’t have been possible without the brand and design guidance of Pixelube‘s Vince Dean and the WordPress wizardy of our own Bob Albert. Too, we received quite a bit of priceless feedback from several friends and colleagues that really helped us refine some of the bumpier spots.
We hope you enjoy the new site, and we welcome your questions and feedback via the comments section below, or if you prefer, send us a private message. We look forward to getting back to posting more regularly now that this project has rooted in and is growing strong. Today, however, a hike in nature far from a computer screen and potting up a bunch of crowded cool season crop seedlings is our next order of business!
