Mediterranean Gardening Association Portugal - NEWS!!!

Hello everyone,

Usually the summer is a quiet time for us gardeners in the dry, hot Mediterranean zones of the world but it seems that we have some keen folk willing to organise events and I have been asked to circulate information and send you all a warm invitation to participate in anything that takes your fancy mentioned below.  

Also, the holding page for our new web site is now online -http://mediterraneangardeningportugal.org  so  you can get a feel for our first ideas. All comments and contributions welcome.

 Olá a todos,

Normalmente, o verão é uma pausa tranquila para nós jardineiros nas zonas mediterrânicas secos e quentes do mundo, mas parece que temos algumas pessoas interessados e ​​dispostos a organizar eventos e me pediram para fazer circular a informação e enviar a todos um caloroso convite para participar em qualquer coisa abaixo mencionados. 

Além disso, a página de retenção para o nosso novo website já está online - http://mediterraneangardeningportugal.org  para que você possa ter uma idéia de nossos primeiros esforços. Todos os comentários e contribuições bem-vindos.
