TIPS for working in our gardens:

  • Get to know the garden coordinators.
  • Check the blog posts to see where the "hot spots" are.  
  • Work in any garden you like.  We greatly appreciate your help.
  • You'll receive harvest from a variety of gardens. 
  • If it's possible, be consistent by picking ANY time when you can come and work in a garden on a regular basis.  You can always change or cancel if needed.  You may stay and work as long as you like.   
  • It's never a problem if you can't attend.  If a coordinator was expecting you, just let them know.
  • Once you know what work needs to be done in a garden, you may work ANYTIME during the week (Monday - Saturday) during daylight hours (early morning into the evening) - NOT just during the scheduled group work time.
  • Contact your coordinator first before working in any of the gardens. They may have something urgent they need your help with.
  • You don't have to wait to work in a garden IF you.... 1) have contacted the garden coordinator via email, text, phone message, etc.  2) have at least left a message stating what you plan to work on in that garden
  • If possible, work with the coordinator at least once, so you can get to know each other AND the garden better.
