Hello Gardeners!


I know there have been a lot of questions regarding work crews for the coming season and I hope to answer some of those questions here.
We have divided the garden into quadrants so the work load is more evenly distributed and no one is doing all the pathway weeding while another is doing the compost or Food Forest. If your plot is located in the ​South West quadrant​ ​(see attached map) the following will be the responsibility of all plot holders in that area.
● Pathways ● Weeding Cooks Companion Bed ● Weeding and maintaining the Medicinal Food/Food Forest Bed . If your plot is located in the ​South East quadrant​ ​(see attached map) the following will be the responsibility of all plot holders in that area.
● Pathways ● Children’s Garden (under the teepee) ● Weeding and maintaining the Food Forest
 
If your plot is located in the ​North West quadrant​ ​(see attached map) the following will be the responsibility of all plot holders in that area.
● Pathways ● West shed-weeds around the shed and tidying up the shed If your plot is located in the ​North East quadrant​ ​(see attached map) the following will be the responsibility of all plot holders in that area.
● Pathways ● East shed-weeds around the shed and tidying up the shed ● Children’s play area
 
The large main pathways in the middle of the garden we will try to keep weeded with Gardener Work days. 
There will be a quadrant leader who will communicate to the Crew Leader (Karyn) when areas need attention. This will then go out in an email or the quadrant leader will post it on the white boards in the appropriate shed. Your hours of service to the garden can then be completed on a schedule that is convenient for you. Some of you put specific areas where you can help such as
photography, events, Facebook updates etc and we are still interested in having you perform those tasks as well! 
Quandrant leadership involves nothing more than being observant of what needs to have attention and writing it on the board or sending Karyn an email. No policing involved! If this is something you can help with please contact ​workcrews@roserootsgarden.org​. Some notes about compost:  .You will be asked to please cut or chop your vegetable debris into smaller pieces (no more than 8in.)to lighten the load on the compost crew. In addition, everyone will be required to help out for 1 hour a season on compost. If you have physical limitations please do let me know and we will work around it.
Many hands will make the work load less. If you have any questions or concerns email leadership@roserootsgarden.org
 
 
Thank you for all your hard, hard work in keeping our garden beautiful and productive throughout the year!!
