Join the MCG Watering Team for Greenhouse and Seedbeds

Hard as it is to believe with the record setting rain of the past months, as the weather heats up, we will soon be in need of hose-and-can waterers during the growing season to supplement our drip irrigation system. 

We would like to put together a watering team, at least two people for each day of the week, which provides flexibility for shared duty and coverage during vacations.

We tend 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 Food Bank Beds/Giving Gardens.

Even with drip irrigation it is sometimes necessary to give the Beds a drink. 

If you would like to join the sprinklers, email 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 me know that as well. Being a current renter at the Garden is not a requirement!

I’ll set up an orientation session or two at the Garden for those interested.
