As a gardener at Bandi Schaum Community Garden, we ask everyone to dedicate some time outside of their plot gardening work to contribute to the overall maintenance and management of the garden grounds, operations, etc.
Gardeners: Email the steering committee if you have questions or concerns about volunteering.
We’re in our 9th year in the community garden. After much trial and error regarding “how to organize volunteering,” we’ve decided to simplify. Please take it upon yourselves to notice what things need to be done at the garden. Some examples are: cutting the grass, maintaining the perimeter, and mulching the paths, to mention a few. PLEASE NOTE: some gardeners do plant against the fence so if you are unsure whether something is a weed vs. something planted, please don’t cut it.
If you have a special talent that you think would benefit the garden, please feel free to reach out! Or, if you are the type of person who wants a specific volunteer job, please let us know and you can pick one! We trust that all gardeners are doing their part, as they are able.
As always, we welcome new members to the Steering Committee as well! Please use the link above to email the steering committee with interest!! Thank you!
