Join the MCG Watering Team

posted Mar 27, 2018, 10:35 AM by MCG Admin

    As hard as it is to believe with the record setting rain of the past months, we will soon need to hose and can water during the growing season to supplement our drip irrigation system.  In addition, we have started seeds in the greenhouse for some of the transplants that will go into the Giving Garden beds.

    We are putting together a “Watering Team”.  We need at least two people for each day of the week, which provides flexibility for shared duty and coverage during vacations.

    Duties include watering the plants and seedlings in the two Greenhouses, outdoor pots of edibles such as the potato tower on the east fence, and the newly seeded areas of the Giving Gardens.  And when the weather heats up, even with a drip irrigation it is sometimes necessary to give the Beds an extra drink. 

    If you would like to join the "Watering Team", email admin@mukilteogarden.org with the day(s) of the week you prefer. If you have a fellow gardener or a friend in mind you want to partner with, let us know that as well. Being a current renter at the Garden is not a requirement!

    The team coordinator, Ann Ramos, will set up an orientation session or two at the Garden for those interested.

    Thanks,
