Plan Events for the Community

Schedule Work Days

Your garden is most likely to be properly maintained if there are scheduled workdays and hours. We recommend a weekly or biweekly schedule.

Gardens are community centers. Plan events to help make your garden a part of the community. Examples of festivities include extracurricular courses for kids, holiday events, and art activities.
