Important info for lessees
Community Work Days: Each lessee is required to contribute 4 hours of work per plot on scheduled community days in the care of upkeep of common areas. See calendar on right.
Bring your gardening gloves, kneeling pads, large shovels, and trowels if you have them. If there is sun, don't forget your sunscreen, hat, sunglasses and water! If it is raining just a bit, we'll be out there, but if there is heavy rain, look for a cancellation email.
When you get to the garden, please sign in with the BCG work session coordinator. They will let you know the various garden tasks that need attending. When you are finished, please return all borrowed tools to the shed and sign out.
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. Feel free to pile the mulch on thick! The thicker the better in fact to keep weeds at bay.
Don't forget to shut the gate and lock the shed when you leave! The fence and gate are there to keep the deer out—very important if you want to see your vegetables again! Also be sure to return all tools and lock the gate when you're through.
