Fabulous, exciting, wonderful news. The next Garden Bloggers Fling will be held in Asheville, NC from May 18-20, 2012. And there's a new website that will serve as a sort of central hub for this and all future Flings, so be sure to bookmark that:
We are beyond excited that longtime Friend of Rant Christopher C is inviting us to his corner of the world for the next Fling–although he's not doing it alone; there are always many bloggers involved in putting these things together. As you probably know, this gathering began a few years ago in Austin, and has since been to Buffalo, Chicago, and Seattle. It's organized entirely on a grassroots basis and has been extraordinarily successful. So we do hope that you'll spread the word on your own blogs, Facebook, Twitter, etc–and that you'll let the organizers know early if you're planning to attend. They've reserved a block of hotel rooms and will be busy making other arrangements for which a head count would be useful.
And! Sponsors! These affairs always need sponsors. I don't know what the local group in North Carolina is thinking about in terms of sponsorship, but if you're in a position to be a sponsor, I'm sure they'd like to hear from you.
We'll share more information as it comes together. Meanwhile, get over there and check that out. Oh, and there's a Fling Facebook group, too.
