    Well as the title says, why do you love ALS? (or if you haven’t had a chance to fall in love with ALS yet, what has brought you here, and made you stay and hang around?)

    For me I love the fact that it is Australian based….lots of other gardening/permaculture/sustainable living forums I have come across tend to be very American based.

    I love that the people here are so friendly and welcoming, and generous (I have received many seeds and plants from ALS members who were either getting rid of their excess, or I had asked if anyone had anything which I couldn’t find in the local nurseries)

    I love that through this forum I have made some good friends who I now know outside of this forum.

    Hi Vanessa, nice topic choice :tup:

    I stumbled upon ALS back in 2006 whilst googling chickens that layed blue eggs. I was given a pair of Araucana’s, but had no idea such a breed existed until I found this place.. & have been here ever since

    Yep ditto!

    … & double ditto. I have made some great friends that I keep in contact with ‘in real life’ also.

    The diverse array on almost any subject possible is fairly amazing & all relevant to Aus…

    I agree – great topic! I originally came here a few years ago when the site was advertised in one of the gardening mags (Grass Roots or OG maybe?) and had an Ask Lyn section. I asked Lyn a question about kiwi vines I think… anyway, I noticed the forum as well and soon became hooked! The people here are so friendly and sharing, both on the forum and in person. They are people like me, with similar interests, goals and outlooks in life who dont judge me, and ‘get’ what I do without me having to explain. I find people like that harder to come by in ‘real life’. Thank you kind people – you make me feel welcome and much less strange 🙂

    Yep…like minds. I am a little less “weird/crazy” here 🙂 What don’t others understand! compost is magic, recycling is an artform, Op shops are treasure troves and bees don’t sting you if you talk to them.

    Me too -all of the above. Lots of friendly advice and people who don’t think I am nuts for trying to live simply in the ‘burbs.

    Cant remember how I found Als, just was meant to be. All of the above reasons. I would rather clean my garden then clean the house too lol.

    Just a hippie at heart in a street full of “townies”.

    I found the site while googling to try to find out if you can freeze cream & use it successfully afterwards. I still didn’t find the answer, so the cream I had went off because we couldn’t use it all. Oh well. 🙂

    Found it by accident while looking for something else and stayed cause of all the lovely people willing to share their knowledge. Even when I don’t post I’m always looking to see what is going on
