Maintenance Committee

The Maintenance Committee plans to organize work days when volunteers can help with garden upkeep, such as cleaning or staining the shed, etc.

Hardship help: If a gardener is experiencing a hardship, such as an illness, injury, or other situation that prevents full participation in gardening, please let us know, and we can find people to temporarily help with upkeep.

Enforcement Committee

To ensure a beautiful community garden experience for all gardeners and the community this year, rules such as keeping garden plots and walkways weeded are being enforced. Please help us keep up the beauty of the garden by weeding  your plot and walkway.
