"You will be amazed with what happens at a Garden Blitz with even a few people!  It's impressive!"

Be prompt since we start moving from garden to garden at the meeting time.

Purpose of the Garden Blitz:

  • Visit and inspect every garden often
  • Distribute Baked Goods & Harvest
  • Make assignments on urgent work to be done in each garden
  • Determine the work that needs attention over the next few days
  • Each Garden is divided into 2 parts: 1) Spring/Fall  2) Summer
  • Note garden progress from previous week
  • Weeding to be done
  • Specialty Jobs and assign who will do them (requiring special tools/skills)
  • Help all members get better acquainted with each garden
  • Meet Garden Supervisors and Home Owners

"Every week offers a NEW garden chore!"

All of our Gardens are divided into 2 Garden Blitz's
