This year’s accomplishments

  • Pollinator garden
  • Tool shed
  • Soil and water testing

Results of survey

Call for new garden committee members for three-year terms to begin January 2018

Price of boxes for next year

  • Should we charge more to cover paying workers to weed?
  • Provisions for low-income renters

Standards for upkeep

  • Use of herbicides (Roundup is not organic) and pesticides (neither is Sevin dust) that comply with garden objectives
  • Areas between beds should be weed free; however, if others have to cut back weeds, any garden plants that have grown into the path will be also be cut back
  • How to deal with grass
  • Noncompliance with standards means others can pull weeds or bug-infested plants from boxes, and box cannot be renewed for next year

Looking forward

  • Possibility of getting sturdier trellises for climbing plants and tomatoes
  • Possible field trip to Ecofarms
