Please enjoy a wonderful season at the garden and follow the guidelines below for a safe experience for everyone:
- only trash goes in the trash cans, please. No wood, boards with rusty nails, rocks, dirt, clippings or any organic material should go in the trash. Only trash, please.
- for all things organic that can be composted, but for whatever reason we don’t want in our compost, please put in the brown bags. There are bags located in the shed.
- be aware of rocks in the grassy areas. Do not toss rocks from your plot into the grassy areas. Why? Because the city uses those riding mowers and rocks can easily get caught up in the blades and project at dangerous speeds
- when the water faucet by the north gate is not in use, turn it off to prevent it from running. You can hear it running when the small levers are off, and there is a big puddle by the gate. When you turn it off from the topyou will not hear water leaking
- don’t give out the lock combination to anyone you aren’t sure is a gardener, please.
- mind your own plot: please stay out of others’ plots, unless you have permission to pick.
- the public is always welcome into the garden with a gardener present.
- children in the garden should always be supervised. Please do not allow any kind of running or serious horselplay in the garden…. which reminds me,
- please keep pokey things contained within your plot; don’t leave any implements, cages or rusty bits in the walk ways or hanging outside your plot.
I have a few plots left still, and I should be at the garden this Friday 4/22 at around 5.
