Garden Rules

  • I agree to pay a fee of $20 to help cover garden maintenance and water expenses.  

  • I agree to have something planted in the garden by June 1, 2014 and keep it planted all summer long.  No trees, illegal plants or permanent structures are allowed on any plot.

  • If I must abandon my plot for any reason, I agree to notify the garden coordinator.  If my plot becomes unkempt, I understand I will be given 2 weeks notice to clean it up.  At that time, it will be re-assigned or tilled in.

  • I agree to keep weeds at a minimum and maintain the areas immediately surrounding my plot.  I also agree to keep trash and litter out of the plot, as well as from adjacent pathways and fences.

  • I agree to harvest only my own crops unless given permission by another plot user.
  • Only organic nutrients and pest controls are allowed in the garden.  When in doubt about a product or method, check with a garden coordinator.

  • Metal stakes, rebar, and plastic ground cover are NOT allowed.  Newspaper is very good ground cover and is also biodegradable.  Wooden stakes won't harm rototillers if forgotten.

  • Out of respect for other gardeners please do NOT allow pets or children to run around in the garden areas. 

  • I agree to participate in the fall cleanup of the garden.  All non-biodegradable garden supplies must be removed by October 31st.

  • If the garden is flooded the please do not enter.

  •  I understand that neither the Lewisburg Community Garden, or the Borough of Lewisburg are responsible for my actions. I THEREFORE AGREE TO HOLD HARMLESS THE LEWIBURG COMMUNITY GARDEN AND BOROUGH OF LEWISBURG FOR ANY LIABILITY, DAMAGE, LOSS OR CLAIM THAT OCCURS IN CONNECTION WITH USE OF THE GARDEN BY ME OR ANY OF MY GUESTS.
