This form is for those interested in participating in the community garden project at the Westside Community Center. Formerly run by PPUG, the garden is now going to be run as a cooperative under the guidance of a small group of local gardeners. There will be room for 42 participants to share in the total operation of the garden (instead of renting individual beds). To understand more about the way the garden will operate, read each section carefully so that you know the commitment that is required before sending the application in.
The selection of participants will be based on one's proximity to the garden and one's availability and willingness to meet work requirements.
The fee for being a member of this community garden is $145. for the entire year (Dec. 2018-Dec. 2019) and will go completely to improving the garden. Payments can be made in phases starting in December 2018 for those who qualify. The first review of applicants will take place on Nov. 29, 2018. Spaces will be filled on a first come first serve basis with final payment due by June 1, 2019. Some scholarships may be available.
