Volunteer Work

 

Every plot rental includes a requirement to perform 5 hours of community service.

Each unworked hour will cost you $20, payable at the end of the season, but the garden needs your labor more than your money.   

Your efforts will maintain our common spaces and keep garden programs and facilities running. 

 

 

Grounds Maintenance   

  • Weed the JCG Flower Beds next to the main gate.
  • Mow grass along and between rows, along the roadsides, in the large open space beside the covered shelter, around amendment piles and compost piles, and around the sheds.
  • Trim brush from the fence line corridor, inside and outside fence.
  • Pick up and dispose of any garbage.
  • Weed-whack areas that the lawn mower can’t access.
  • Tarp weed piles.
  • Burn wood piles.
  • Remove orange hawkweed or any other invasive species.  (Secure these weeds in a plastic bag and place in dumpster.)
