Important info for lessees
Garden Plot Framing Weekend to be held on Sat., April 28, 1 – 5 pm & Sun., April 29, 10 am – 1 pm: All lessees should plan to stop by for an hour or so during these times to build a wooden frame around your plot. All wood and hardware will be supplied, but feel free to bring a battery-powered drill or screwdriver. If you are unable to attend or have any questions, please email Kim Jacobs.
Compost: All garden lessees can help themselves to the compost just outside the garden to amend their plots. There are wheelbarrows and shovels in the shed for your use. Just return when through.
Wood chipping paths: As a reminder you are required to weed and wood chip the north and east pathways surrounding your plot. This must be done by the end of the day on June 3, but the earlier you do it, the less maintenance you will have later on. Feel free to pile it on thick, which will reduce your time spent replenishing the wood chips and weeding later in the season when it's much more fun to harvest.
Garden tools & wheelbarrow: The shed has garden tools and wheelbarrows available for your use. You should have received the combination in a prior email, but feel free to email us in case you need it. Please just make sure to return the tools and lock the shed when you're through.
