Goodbye Folia

14 Aug 2019

It’s been a real pleasure using you over these 10+ years. I’m sorry to see you go in so unceremonious of a matter, and I hope all my fellow garden friends saw the slightly buried post about you closing down.

You taught me a lot about keeping track of garden notes, and how important that data can be for the future.

I connected with a lot of remarkable gardeners from all around the world that I wouldn’t have otherwise done.

It’s the end of an era now, maybe somebody in the future will pick up the mantle and build a site to replace you (although nobody ever quite will).

ETA: Just as I write this, I find Nath has posted an update today saying the date is pushed back to September 14th. Yay!

If you’re a gardener on Folia and seeing this, please do join us over in the Facebook group where a bunch of us have gathered to keep the community together:
