Work Days & Garden Social

First, the fun stuff: The Garden Board is organizing a social, we’ll provide the essential utensils and some drinks (beer, wine and non-alcoholic options). Please join us Sunday, June 11 at 5PM. Please bring a dish to share and anything you’d like to grill.

Second: We’ve all got work hour obligations and while you can do them at any time and report them through the Work Hours form on this web site, we’re also pin-pointing work days where you’ll have some solidarity with fellow gardeners.

Here’s what we’ve got so far (last summer, Saturdays seemed to work better than the weekday evenings):

Come for any amount of time you can between 8AM – 11AM on the following dates:

Saturday, May 20, 8AM – 11AMSaturday, June 24, 8AM – 11AM

Saturday, July 15, 8AM – 11AM 

Saturday, August 12, 8AM – 11AM

As a reminder, each plot must contribute at least 4 hours of work annually towards the common good of the garden.

The Google Calendar (also available through this site) will be updated accordingly before this weekend is out.
