As the season draws to a close, we are looking to those who gardened at SSCG this year for ideas on how we can improve.
If you have a suggestion, we really want to know. Please write your ideas in the comments area below this post.
Here are a few of the ideas we have heard thus far:
Signs for garden plots where a gardener can ask for assistance. There could be different signs such as “Please water. I’m away.” or “Help yourself to a few tomatoes.” or “What’s this disease?” etc. Any ideas for other signs?
Leaving “available for the taking” produce on the picnic table.
Supply all gardeners with a list of names of other gardeners. Should we share emails or phone numbers within the group?
A start-of-the-season meeting held in early Spring for all gardeners to discuss organic fertilizers and the pesticides that are OK to use in our organic garden.
A bulletin board in/on the shed for sharing information on site regarding the garden.
We would like to come up with a way to help gardeners who – for a legitimate reason – can’t do weeding, watering, etc. Any ideas? Perhaps a sign-up sheet where a gardener can ask for help?
Thanks so much.
It is the gardeners who have made this a great season and wonderful experience.
Your commitment has been appreciated. — Natalie Walsh
