Derrick, you can click on Members in the green banner at the top of any page and then search for MD or Maryland there to find folks for your group. Then you wouldn't have to keep posting your solicitations for your Maryland group all over the place where most likely the overwhelming majority of people aren't from Maryland. Anyhow that's how I do it for my own local group (although it will be simpler for you because you're organizing by state; I need to search for any municipality in my region). And kudos for starting one yourself - hope it's as helpful to you as mine is to me.
Thanks for joining the Aquaponic Gardening community! I hope you find it a fun place to explore aquaponics. There is a real blend of experienced and new aquapons in this community, so please don’t hesitate to get in there and start asking questions. Everyone is quite happy to help out new members--no question is too basic.
A great place to start is to read the “How to Use This Site” link on the upper left corner, “Start Here” section of the Home page. You might also find the “Aquaponic Gardening Rules of Thumb” guidelines helpful.
