Spring seems to be on its way and that means it’s time for our second Legends Community Garden (LCG) Annual General meeting (AGM) set to take place on March 31, 2015 at the Legends Centre in Activity Room 2. The meeting will be held from 7:00 – 8:00 pm but we will be available to take completed application forms and money for a plot ($30.00 cash or cheque) from 6:30 – 7:00 pm.
This is the time to renew your LCG Membership or to become a new member of the garden. Dues this year are unchanged at $30.00 payable by cash or cheque at the AGM. Please remember to bring your completed application form as well.
Please consider getting involved and becoming a member of this year’s Garden Committee. We will have vacancies and we need to fill these spots in order for the garden to exist.
It’s a great way to meet other gardeners and help shape the development of our garden. The Garden Committee meets approximately six times during the year at the Legends Centre.
Positions on the Garden Committee are:
The duties for these positions are attached below.
We have planned 2 dates to close the garden this year in order to enable maximum participation:
Saturday Oct. 25 at 2 pm
Saturday Nov. 1 at 2 pm
As per our constitution it is every member’s responsibility to clean out their plot by November 1 and to pitch in to help close the garden and so please choose one of the above dates that suits you best.
On those dates our communal tasks will include:
emptying the rain barrels
scrubbing/cleaning the rain barrels
storing the rain barrels
weeding the paths
cleaning up the communal bed and slopes (weeding)
chopping up compost
If you are unable to attend either date, we would ask the following:
please donate some time for one of the above communal tasks and send an email once you have cleaned out your plot and which communal task you worked on.
If anyone is able to bring a bucket for emptying the rainbarrels (into the north field) and shears for chopping up compost, please do so.
