In June of 2009 a card table was set up in the parking lot next to the garden, membership forms were laid out, and the founding members of the steering committee were on hand to help new members sign up for a plot and show them where their plot was located. On the first day, 32 members joined. News of the garden spread by word of mouth.

Michael and crew checked the garden for leaks. The water will be turned on the week of April 20th and run every other night and on Saturday. If a leak was discovered on your plot, it was marked with a yellow flag and your valve was turned off. Please fix the leak and check with Michael before turning it on. New drip tape is available in the shed (sorry, it got kinda tangled up).
Please monitor your water. The drip system is intended to water efficiently and help conserve water but gardeners must maintain the system on their own plots and be aware of how it is working.
The drip system runs a speed cycle every Saturday from noon until 2. It will run for about 10 minutes in each of the 8 sections of the garden. Gardeners should plan to check their system periodically to see if it is running well.
The drip system is not sufficient for seeds and young seedlings. They will need personal attention.
Compost Delivery: Compost is in, come and get it while it is available!
Wood Chip Delivery: Is available for paths. Please weed your garden path and replenish with wood chips.
Food Bank: We have adorable wooden markers at the bulletin board. Stick one of these by a plant in your plot that you want to share with the Food Bank.
