This year, 6BC has plots available for those members who are interested in maintaining them. There are two categories of plot maintenance:
Full steward - this person has primary responsibility for maintaining the plot, and supervising the "assistant steward."
Assistant steward - Assisting the full steward of a plot. The assistant is responsible for maintaining the plot under the direction of the full steward if for any reason the steward cannot consistently do so. Specific responsibilities to be decided on an individual basis between each steward and plot assistant.
If you are interested in being either a full steward or an assistant, please let us know at your orientation or by contacting us. If you are interested in gardening but don't want to maintain a plot, we have many other general gardening tasks needing to be done.
Please read our guidance section, below, Being a plot steward/plot assistant calls for responsibility and commitment. Please apply only if you feel you are really able to make this commitment over the summer months.
No prior gardening experience necessary! But, you must be willing to maintain your plot throughout the gardening season. This will involve watering, weeding, planting, soil maintenance and improvement, fertilizing, deadheading, etc. If you have any questions about gardening, you can refer to our ever-growing plant gallery, best garden practices section, or ask a board member.
