reporter seeking interview subjects for national magazine feature

Reporter87March 5, 2013

Hello, everyone! I'm a reporter working on a large Father's Day-related story and are looking for people who can share interesting stories of useful, practical and/or interesting skills they learned from their dads.

Do any of you have a fascinating story about a hands-on, technical skill in horticulture that your father taught you that you'd be interested in sharing?

I'm seeking unique, diverse, and detailed 100-250 word stories with step-by-step instructions to impart readers with actionable, "how-to" information.

Please e-mail the following for consideration:
-Topic of your story.
-Your age.
-Your profession.


Approved subjects will be notified, then asked to submit their story, so please do not send stories at this time. Could make for a really awesome father's day present!

Sounds like a scam.

When I was a young boy my father and grandfather taught me how to compost and organically garden.

I am 40 years old.

I am an accredited organic land care professional.
