This Forum has always struggled, which befuddles me, because it should be flourishing on a site such as this. Could it be that from the name people infer that it is about gardening? Would a more Earth-centered name help? If so, what would be a good one?

The name is perfect. Mods should nuture their forums, too, not just moderate.

Agreed. Might need to shuffle some Mods around.

Very well said!

I used to post here alot, but with our droughts, etc. I am not highly inspired by the outdoors, lately.

I will post more, tho. Fall is here, onto winter and I always plant about now, especially with putting the house on the market!

I just clicked on this forum for the first time ever!

Honestly, I haven't checked it out before because I'm depressed that I don't get enough gardening done.

But if it's just about nature...and now I see that it is...I will come here more. I live in a rural area half the year, have a 50 acre forest that is like my heart's sanctuary...this is right up my alley!

So I'll contribute.

You need Mods who will nuture their forums plus a name change is a good idea!

How funny!

I started a thread about gardening in 2013 but in the Hearth and Home forum.

I naturally assumed that this forum was more about a sort of paganic/environmental view of the world.

Not that is a bad thing, rather the name made it appear to be more about that then simply gardening.

It is about more than simple gardening.

It should be a full, rich well rounded forum about many subjects that affect people, the environment and all living entities like rocks, minerals, forests and such living on Earth/ Gaia... including plants
