Garden Map for 2023

One of the things that make The Parkallen Community Garden so special is its open and shared gardening concept as compared to the assigned individual plots of other community gardens. For 2023 we are extending that model by having a “plot captain” for each plot.

The idea is that the Plot Captain guides the theme for each plot. The planting, weeding, watering, and harvesting is of course still shared.

1ShedStorage for tools and supplies. Can always use a tidying
2CompostRose3 bin composter for new, cooking and mature compost. Can always use a turn and some feeding
We also need to refresh the signage to make it more useful
3TreesMarleneAssortment of fruit trees. Could use a pruning and some signage.
4EdgingKevinThe stones that demarcate the edges of the garden can always use a little weeding to keep the grass from overgrowing the garden

The garden is of course open 24/7 but these are times when a host will usually be on site to help guide the gardening and welcome people to the garden.
