2020 Huntingdon Community Food Garden Waiver of Liability
We hope your gardening experience is safe and rewarding, but accidents can happen. The following waiver must be signed by all gardeners to protect ReInvision Huntingdon from liability.

The Huntingdon Community Food Garden, on behalf of ReInvision Huntingdon, is seeking businesses, organizations, and local schools that would like to be the primary caretakers, or "Garden Crew Members," of the Community Garden during the growing season (May-October).  The garden is located on the south-facing slope below the former William Smith Elementary School at the corner of 5th and Moore Streets.  Our produce has been donated to the Salvation Army, the Huntingdon Drop-In Center, Soup Kitchens, and taken home by dedicated volunteers.

Every member who is interested in volunteering must have the waiver completed PRIOR to their scheduled garden work session.

In the midst of a global pandemic and economic shutdown, we understand the importance of access to local food and garden space. We therefore plan to be operational this season but will be enforcing strict guidelines to ensure that garden volunteers and personal gardeners maintain safe practices while at the garden. Please visit our website for more information about our plans for 2020: https://reinvision.org/initiatives/community-food-garden/
