Want to be a crop wrangler? We're seeking volunteers.

"What's a crop wrangler?" I hear you ask. Well, a crop wrangler is a Growstuff member who volunteers a little bit of time (we'd estimate an hour a month, averaged over time) to keep Growstuff's crop database up to date, make sure it has a wide variety of crops, respond to other members' requests for new crops and so on.

To start off with, we'll be making an effort to fill in a wide variety of:

  • Peppers (chilli peppers, bell peppers, and the like)
  • Tomatoes
  • Squashes
  • Brassicas (kale, cabbages, turnips, mustard, many varieties of Asian greens)

We'll work together using shared spreadsheets and a mailing list to keep everyone in the loop, and Growstuff's coders will provide help when we need to mass-upload heaps of crops at once.

Interested? If you'd like to be a crop wrangler (and gain our perennial love and appreciation) just drop a comment here.

I commented on the list, but I guess it makes more sense to do it here:-)

I think this is something I could probably do:-)
