Notes on Sunday Work Meeting

Filed under: Meeting Notes — by west104garden @ 10:35 am

Hi Gardeners,

We had a good turn out for Sunday’s meeting and workday. Thanks to all of you who were there and those who emailed! We covered a lot of ground during the meeting (summarized below). During the work session members finished putting together the benches and weeded the communal gardens on the East side. On the West side others (enthusiastically) uprooted and cut up a dead bush, spread dirt left by Law and Order, uprighted plants beaten down by the rain and wind in the communal bed, and weeded the lawn. A good day’s work!

The next meeting and workday is Sat., October 18.

For the Steering Committee


· Theft. Rather than install surveillance cameras (as one member suggested), we will put up a sign in each garden saying: “Do not pick anything! This garden is under surveillance.”

· Moving the stage: We decided to form a subcommittee to investigate what would be required and different possibilities, as well as the pros and cons, to present to garden members on/around our November meeting. *** Volunteers for the committee needed—esp. people with experience in garden design or staging and those with a special interest in this decision. Alan Tenney will be the organizer. Please send RSVP to me (Ann): Siswi@aol.com.

· Dirt. The West garden needs soil badly. Decision on whether to purchase or to collect ourselves, from the Central Park supply, postponed until we have prices. (Ariel is researching this.)

· Electricity. Instead of purchasing a generator for use in construction, etc., we will contact The Bridge about paying them for using their outlet.

· Fall celebration. There was some confusion on the calendar. We will hold one festival on Sun. October 26, possibly combining a flea market, Halloween party, and music. (Details up to Events Committee.)

· Garden expenditures. For purchases up to $200, members should get permission in advance from the Steering Committee. Expenditures over $200 require the membership to vote.
