Hi my name is David Goldmintz and I’m a student at UNCC. This summer I’m doing a research project involving your community garden. About two weeks ago 2 of my teachers, Dr. Adams and Dr. Eastin, along with help from another student Brandy Stimac and I, setup a weather station on the garden grounds, I’m sure you’ve seen it. We have been collecting data from this station and will be using it to determine how well the weather at Charlotte Douglas Airport represents the entire greater Charlotte area. Along with setting up this station on the garden my classmates and I will be providing you with forecasts twice a week along with summaries of the previous weeks weather data. Attached below is a survey we have come up with to get a better understanding of what you look for in a forecast and where you get your weather information.

In order to streamline and automate things I have taken the time to put together a online orientation that people can take from anywhere and at their convenience. This will help a lot with new people coming to the garden who want to know more and/or aren’t sure how to get started. They can take the orientation and then will be given a link at the end where they can sign up.
