LOG YOUR SERVICE HOURS
View Service Hours Log
Check how many hours you have logged previously. You can log new service hours on the form above.
As a registered CSG gardener, you must fulfill and log 15 x hours of service by August 31st, per your annual CSG agreement. It’s very easy and helps keep our lovely community garden maintained and looking good! You can check with your Row Leader what community jobs are on the garden list OR there is a monthly Task List posted on the garden kiosk noticeboard near the main gate. So if you need to contribute service hours outside of work days, you can easily log an hour or two each month.
