Spring Grounds Clean-Up

Join other garden society members in a general clean-up of the gardens and grounds.

 

May 7, 2017 at 1:00 pm

Rain date: May 14, 2017

 

Spring clean-up is normally held as soon as possible in the spring - either after the snow has mostly melted, or the flood waters have receded.

 

RGS members will come together to do a general clean-up of the grounds and start any garden maintenance, like weeding and preparing the Common Gardens for planting.

 

This is often the first time that many gardeners will visit their plot in the spring - a lot of weeding and other garden preparation work happens on this day.

SEPTEMBER 30 (tilled) & OCTOBER 31 (no till)

Fall Plot Clean-Up Deadlines

 

September 30, for "tilled" plots

   

October 31, for "no till" plots

 

Is my garden plot "tilled", or not?

 

Each garden plot is labelled either "tilled" or "no till" - this information is found in your membership renewal package.

 

Annually, at the end of September, RGS will arrange to have designated plots "tilled" under.

 

What does clearing your plot mean?

 

  • Any vegetation on your plot must be chopped into six inch (6") or less sized bits OR removed from your plot and hauled to the compost bins.

  • All fencing and materials should be removed from your plot and from the garden border.

  • Water cubes and other paraphenalia must be moved beyond the grass driveway, to ensure gardeners can still drive around.

  • All unwanted materials should be taken to your home for garbage/recycling collection.

 

After tilling all materials, including water cubes, can be placed neatly on your plot for winter storage.

TBD (October)

Compost Shredding Bee

Please help to prepare vegetation for composting!

 

Check the "Garden Kiosk" for dates and times.

 

Each year gardeners prapare for fall tilling by removing vegetation from their plots - much of this vegetation goes into our compost bins.  Shredding these materials is required for proper composting.

 

Please bring gloves and, if needed, a face mask.

 

A BIG thanks to all those who contribute their time to this effort!
