Candide, a website and social sharing app for gardeners, recently launched in the U.S., after first growing its user base in South Africa and the U.K. Now that U.S. gardeners have access, I’m happy to announce that I’m writing articles for the website and sharing more-personal gardening photos and posts via the app, which is kind of like Instagram for gardeners.
You can find a few of my gardening articles there now, with more to come.
And if you join the free app, you can find me there too, under the imaginative username PamPenick. If you’ve ever thought it would be fun to have a gardening blog but haven’t bothered with setting one up, or if you share plant pics all the time on IG or FB, boring your non-gardening friends and family, Candide is for you.
Check Candide out, both the website’s gardening articles and the social-sharing app. I’ll see you there!

Donate to the Tom Spencer Million Trees for Austin Fund, established by TreeFolks in March 2020 to honor Tom Spencer, a tireless environmental advocate and longtime host of Central Texas Gardener. Tom’s bold vision of planting another million trees in the Austin community inspired TreeFolks to pursue this goal, and they invite others to join the campaign. In Tom’s own words, “Plant trees, plant hope.” For information about making an annual gift, stock donation, or charter contribution, please call Andrew W. Smiley, TreeFolks Executive Director at 512-413-7774, or visit their website for additional information.
