Garden Kick Off + Starting the Season at Douglas Community Gardens

Spring Garden Kickoff!

Sunday April 22, 10am – 1pm
BOTH GARDENS

We only have two work parties a year, this is one of them!

Stop by your garden to:

  • Start working on your plot.
  • Get a garden tour.
  • Ask questions.
  • Share your ideas.
  • Meet the board.
  • Meet fellow gardeners.

Communal work you do at the kickoff counts toward your 5 required volunteer hours!

This is also a great orientation for new members and everyone else who wants a refresher.


We still have open plots at B Street – if you know someone interested in growing with us have them contact us!


Read the Garden Guidelines

Be sure to review the Garden Guidelines! They cover Membership; Community Garden Maintenance; Pesticides, Herbicides, Fungicides, and Fertilizers; Organic Plot Maintenance Basics (Materials and Tools, Structures, Composting, Greenhouse, Weeds, Pets & Children); Youth Plots; Unwanted Activities; and End of the Season.

Bring any questions about the guidelines to the Spring Kickoff Work Party.


Check the Volunteer Needs List

All members are responsible for a minimum of 5 volunteer hours at the garden.

You can see a list of volunteer projects on the Volunteer Updates page at the website. Some of the needs right now include B Street box repairs, painting plot IDs, weeding pathways and shared plots, greenhouse cleanup, trash cleanup and cleaning and oiling tools.
