To keep things running smoothly, we have a few community guidelines:

  • Keep your plot clean, healthy, watered, and disease-free. We are all part of the same ecosystem.
  • Return all tools, gloves, fertilizers, etc. to the shed when you’re done. Please make sure your kids do the same. Put away the hoses neatly.
  • Please do not pick any plants or flowers outside of your own plot.
  • Supervise your kids. Make sure your kids (and their babysitter) know which plot is yours. All our rules apply to kids as well.
  • Leashed dogs are allowed. Please be considerate, clean up after your dog, and make sure other gardeners present are comfortable with dogs.
  • Please help water ornamental beds.
  • Help keep the garden clean & tidy. Toss trash that blows in, help sweep fallen leaves, etc.
  • Please email the garden before donating pots, trellises, etc. to the garden.
  • Please email the garden before inventing more garden space around your plot. Seating areas are definitely off limits.
  • Make sure the water is off before you leave.
  • Lock the garden when you leave.
  • Members are welcome to bring friends into the garden. Members are responsible for their guests’ behavior.
  • Take as much of your trash with you as possible. We don’t have a formal trash pick up.
  • While present in the garden, members are welcome to invite the community in. Please make sure visitors don’t take or leave anything. Make sure there are no non-members in the garden before you leave.
  • As per our lease, only dues-paying members may have a key to the garden. Should you discontinue your membership, you must return your key.
