Disputes and Grievance Procedure
Disputes and Grievances
As with any community, problems between members can arise. Differing gardening styles and differing personalities can clash and escalate into a dispute or grievance. Here are procedures that might help resolve a dispute with a fellow gardener, or settle a grievance against a decision made by the Board of Stewards.
