2021 garden rules:
Community plots are open to all gardeners who desire to work in the garden and participate in work sessions.
Every gardener is responsible to help with the upkeep and maintenance of the entire garden. All garden rules are to be obeyed.
Plots will be assigned every year in mid-March. First priority is given to previous gardeners and those who have fulfilled garden obligations.
Every gardener is required and expected to work 8 hours and/or participate in 2 work parties each growing season. Each gardener is also responsible for weeding and maintaining the area surrounding his or her plot.
All plots not kept weeded, watered and maintained shall be considered neglected. The gardener will be given notice, and if no changes are made, the plot will be returned to the Community Garden. This can happen anytime during the growing season, and there will be no refund of fees.
Produce which is not harvested in a timely manner will be donated to local food banks, after an attempt to contact the gardener.
