FALL COMMUNITY GARDEN CLEANUP DAY - NOV 1

Posted by ebcommunitygarden on September 22, 2015 at 9:40 AM Comments comments (0)

This is for community garden cleanup NOT personal plot cleanup.

 

As a reminder, every gardener is to put in 4 hours of community garden service or pay $20 for buyout. If you have not put in your hours, this is a great time to get it done. Any gardener who fails to put in their 4 hours or do the buyout will not be able to renew for next year.

DO NOT PARK AT THE GARDEN - USE LOTS

Posted by ebcommunitygarden on June 8, 2015 at 1:25 PM Comments comments (0)

Park Ranger has notified us that people parking in the handicapped reserved area down at the end of garden may be ticketed if caught parking without proper handicapped sticker/tag. This carries a hefty $250 fine.

 

If you are dropping off items, drop them off and go park car in municipal lot or library lot. Then you can pick up your items on the way back.

 

Park Ranger seems to be present quite a bit.

 

If you try to park up near the garden, you may also be ticketed!

Our garden is part of the Parks area.
