Closing date of garden: Dec. 5
Closure tasks: Please remove all spent plant material. Cleaned plots may be mulched with straw, compost, or cover crops for winter protection. If you anticipate renewing your current plot lease next year, plants being overwintered for next season (like garlic) may remain.
All cages, trellises, stakes, and the like must be removed from the garden for the winter. Personal items can not be stored in the shed.
Please refer to page 8 of the Lease and Use Agreement for more specifics.
Note: Failure to properly clean your plot may result in the inability to lease again next year.
All community work hours must be completed by Nov. 30.
2 hours of community work: As part of the Lease and Use Agreement, you agree to participate in two (2) hours of community work to assist in the care and maintenance of common areas and outer pathways of the garden. Plus make sure your north and east pathways are clear of weeds.
Here are instructions on recording your work hours.
How to register for a plot for the 2022 gardening season
2021 lessees: If you've leased in the 2021 season, you will receive an email early next spring when registration opens up to give you an opportunity to lease your plot or switch to an available plot. This will be sent before the registration opens up for those who didn't lease next year.
New lessees: If you'd like to receive registration information on for the 2022 season, send us an email and we will add you to our list for receiving information early in the spring.
NOTE: Registration information will also be on this website.
