Community Gardens: Garden Leadership Committee Members
Leadership Committees are garden-based board of directors comprised of community gardeners inspired to create thriving community garden sites. They are talented gardeners who volunteer their time in so many ways. To list a few, they build garden sheds, plant communal raspberry patches, write donation request letters, dig new garden plots, paint garden signs, help develop kids programming and turn lots and lots of compost.
A benefit of community gardening is that you are surrounded by people who are passionate about gardening and growing their own food. Get to know your garden neighbors and leadership committee members. They are wellsprings of garden knowledge. Your coordinator is available during garden hours and is only a phone call or email away. Check in regularly with your garden’s communication binder or board. Here you’ll find information about garden events, organic gardening methods, garden pests, etc. Also, stay tuned to this here blog! Myself and two leadership committee members are regular bloggers on Garden City Harvest’s “The Real Dirt.” Check out Mike’s latest post about pruning raspberries or Adam’s post on planting and thinning beets. As a community gardener you have resources all around you!
