Community Gardeners Community Service Requirements

Four hours of Community Service time (per plot per year) must be given to participate in the Community Garden Program. This is in addition to maintenance of your plot and pathways. This will be tracked closely. Failure to complete and record these hours by the deadline will result in an invoice of $20 per unrecorded hour. There are many great ways to give back to your community and Growing Gardens is open to unique and creative suggestions. There are specific garden work days that will be scheduled throughout the season. Each work day will be supervised by a Garden Leader. All volunteer hours served must be logged on our website by the individual community gardener.
