Hi Minx - do have a look at the welcome page if you havent already. The site is new and will grow and evolve quickly in response to our vision and your needs.

It's great to see you sharing your knowledge here - thank you on behalf of all of us. I am delighted to see you are amongst other things a Micologist. I have my own experience of being inspired by Paul Stamets.

It would be great to see a pic of yourself up here - it really helps. So if you need help getting your photo up here, please sing out. To get you started on that, you can go to "My Page" and on the left hand side you'll see "Change My Photo"

And if you do a search for Christchurch in the Members page from time to time, you might be surprised to find other people you can start exchanging things with. And if you don't, then it's a good reason to go out and find some people to invite :-)
