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 2012 season, your application should be turned in, with the appropriate fees, by October 31, 2011. Your 2011 deposit can be rolled-over as your 2012 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, 2011. 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 loosing your plot to someone else... submit your 2012 Garden Application by October 31st!!
The 2012 Garden Application, as well as the Rules and Regulations, can be found under the Applications page.
Please note that the water service will be turned off on October 31st, to avoid the risk of frozen/broken water lines. If you plan to garden over winter, please make alternate plans for your water supply.
A big thanks to all of our members for gardening responsibly and for working together to keep this community effort going. We hope everyone enjoyed being a part of the Wrangell Community Garden this year. All of the garden plots looked vivacious this year, and we look forward to gardening together in Wrangell in 2012. Have a great winter!
