GARDENER AUTHORIZATION & RESPONSIBILITIES
- If after assignment, for any reason, you find that you cannot care for your garden, you are required to notify the Steering Committee and make arrangements with other gardeners to water and maintain your plot during your absence. If a garden appears neglected/abandoned (un watered and/or overrun with weeds) you will be given ten (10) days notice to improve/maintain your plot. After this time, your plot will be re-assigned.
- Watering of individual plots should be in line with the restrictions and conservation measures followed by other participants in the Community Garden (including those used to support both the Community section of the Garden as well as to support the Children’s Garden).
- For the health of our gardens, land, and community, use of non-organic pesticides, herbicides and fertilizers is prohibited.
- The maintenance of Common areas and furnishings, fencing, trees, trash receptacles, compost bins, street & alley right-of-way, and water lines are the shared responsibility of all gardeners.
- Gardeners must have their plot planted by May 31 or the plot will be forfeited and re-assigned.
- Each gardener is responsible for clearing his/her plot before the close of the season. All dead plants, weeds, trash, tools, sticks, and cages are to be removed or stored by Thanksgiving. All gardeners must tend their plot in compliance with the Community Garden Guidelines.
- Garden Steering Committee shall not discriminate on the basis of race, creed, color, national or ethnic origin, religion, marital status, age, sex, sexual orientation, or disability in its garden membership and the administration of its programs.
