How it Works
Volunteers network together to develop a planting plan, water maintenance and weeding schedule, and completion of other tasks. Throughout the season, gardeners share the produce grown among each other. Communal hand tools and equipment are provided for Gardener’s use in the 14-shared plots. Services provided in the gardens include water source, maintained paths, composting, recycling, fencing, and the advice of the experienced Park staff.
The season begins with a Spring Kick-Off meeting followed by contributing at least 20-hours of gardening activity and taking watering shifts throughout the season. The season concludes with a fall clean-up.
