February, 2012:

First Garden work day of Spring 2012: Share-cropping!

Hello Gardeners (& garden enthusiasts!) –

Tomorrow – Sunday, February 26th – we will have our first full-garden work day from 1-6pmAll are welcome, even if you do not have a plot! This is a chance for anyone interested to swing by and get their hands dirty. We will be focusing on preparing two beds for this semesters share-cropping project, but there are plenty of other projects around the garden to work on too!

For those interested in participating in our share-cropping experiment, please be present in the garden between 3-4pm tomorrow to discuss plans for with the space and set a course of action. Anyone arriving before 3 may continue with the prep work (weeding plot 9 & the large plot west of the garden shed), and whoever may stay past 4 could potentially begin planting. Please know that all plot-keepers are welcome to participate in share-cropping, even if you did not express interest during our first meeting!

We hope to see most of you tomorrow!

Spring 2012 plot assignments!

Click here to access the contact info of your plot-sharers!

We’ve incorporated the plot assignment list into a basic layout of the garden (north being to the left, Van Buren St at the bottom). I hope this reads intuitively! If not, you can verify your plot number on the contact sheet linked above. If you still have questions,  don’t hesitate to ask!

PLEASE NOTE: Plot numbers on the NORTH half of the garden have shifted.  If you already had a plot on the north, then you have the same real-estate – the number has merely changed.
