We’ve set November 5th, anytime between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m., as a time to get together as a garden community and finish cleaning up our garden plots. And, especially for those who haven’t put in their required 8 hours community work, working on the community areas of the garden.
Those who haven’t done their 8 hours risk losing their plots in 2012. (If you have unreported hours, send them to Michael Stein-Ross –
The rules require that we have our plots cleaned up by October 31st*, but the Parks Department has given us until November 5th to complete that work. It would be great if you could do the bulk of the cleanup in your plot prior to November 5th so the Parks Department can pick up that pile on or before November 5th. We need to bring in the 8 yards of compost that we have already purchased and that pile will probably be put in the spot in front of the compost bins. You’ll be able to amend your beds with that compost either this fall or next spring.
We’ll probably have some cider or other goodies to give us strength (feel free to bring something).
*Winter gardening. Some of you may want to grow gardens through the winter – please let the Board know before November 5th if you’ll be planning winter gardens.
