We’ve thrown a lot of Fling information at you during the past few months (and years 😉 ), and it can be hard to find all the information you’re looking for. So here’s a list of important links and information you’ll need for making final arrangements for your trip to Madison next week.
Communication #hashtag Our hashtag for the 2022 Garden Bloggers Fling is #gbFling2022. Please be sure to use that every time you post something about the Fling on your favorite social media site. It’s a great way for sponsors, garden owners, and fellow Flingers to follow along on our adventures.
Facebook Group It’s also important to note that all our communication during the busy days of the Fling is done through our Facebook group. If you’re coming to the Fling, but you’re not a member of that group yet, please click here and request to join. Then turn on the FB notifications, and keep your eyes peeled for important announcements from now all the way through the Fling (and afterward as people start posting pictures and blog links about the Fling!)

Your hosts for the Madison Garden Bloggers Fling: Please remember that each Fling is planned, coordinated, and run by volunteers. This is not our full-time job. So please, please be patient if you experience any glitches during the Fling. We’ll do our best to make sure everything goes as planned, but with every BIG event, there’s always something. So, patience and understanding are always appreciated!
