The Winter Main Garden Work Parties have been planned for 5 dates this Winter. Come out and join other Gardeners to keep the garden growing over the Winter and enjoy the good company. All Work Parties are open to garden members from all Teams; participants earn ongoing 'Winter Picking Privileges" for the Main Garden Winter crops.
A Garden-wide email will go out confirming times and dates of upcoming Work Party prior to each date, and will announce any postponement dates if inclement weather interferes.
A Work Party Chore list will be created just prior to each event and sent to all Dayleaders; a Dayleader(s) from the Hosting Team(s) will be the Work Party Leader that day.
Planned dates (subject to change near the date of event, as all are dependent upon on weather conditions):
Monday Nov. 15, hosted by the Two Monday Teams, time will be 11 AM - 2 PM.
Tuesday 7 December, hosted by the Tuesday Team (time to be announced later)
Wednesday 12 January, hosted by the Wednesday Team (time to be announced later)
Thursday 10 February, hosted by the Thursday Team (time to be announced later)
Friday 25 February, Raspberry Pruning, hosted by the Friday Team(date may be adjusted as it depends on when the Raspberry Pruning is needed; time to be announced later)
For Gardeners who would like to work alone, there is a new WINTER CHORE BINDER now in the shed, with a list of the chores that will be needed all winter to care for the Garden. No checklist, just a list of things that need to be done frequently, on an 'as needed' basis.
You can also view the Winter Chore List here.
**Plant Parents and other Gardeners with ongoing projects will have their own Tasks to attend to; all of them, and those who attend Work party events or work independently over the Winter in various capacities will all earn 'Winter Picking Privileges'
