With our 2012 gardening season coming to a close, it is time to decide if you want to keep your garden plot for the 2013 gardening season.
•What to do if you Do want to keep your plot next year...
If you wish to garden over the winter and/or maintain your garden plot for the 2013 season, your application should be turned in, with the appropriate fees, by October 31, 2012. Your 2012 deposit can be rolled-over as your 2013 deposit. With a current application on file, you may choose to continue gardening through the fall and winter, or begin cultivating your soil in preparation for next year.
•What to do if you Do Not want to keep your plot next year…
If you know you do not want your garden plot for next year, please remove all material from the plot by October 31, 2012. This includes all plants (living or dead), weeds, pots, wire cages, netting, plastic hoop frames, wood frames, stakes, signs, etc. Once your plot has been signed-off by the site manager and your key returned, your deposit will be returned to you (unless you wish to donate it to the garden).
Garden plots that do not have a new application attached to them by October 31st will be cleaned of all plant and non-plant material and the gardener’s deposit will be forfeited. Applications for new gardeners are accepted on an open-enrollment basis, on a first-come, first-serve basis. Don't risk losing your plot to someone else... submit your 2013 Garden Application by October 31st!!
The 2013 Garden Application, as well as the Rules and Regulations, can be found on this website, under the Applications page.
The municipal water service will be turned off soon after October 31, 2012, to avoid the risk of frozen/broken water lines, so if you plan to garden over winter, please make alternate plans for your water supply.
Have a great winter!
