As a CSG Member you must fulfill and log 15 x service hours by August 31st each year, per your Gardener’s Agreement. It’s very easy to achieve and helps keep our lovely community garden maintained and looking good.

Attend our Second Saturday or Last Thursday workdays where there are plenty of community jobs allocated on those days.

Check with your Row Leader what needs doing near your Row OR there is a monthly Task List posted here and on the garden kiosk noticeboard near the main gate. So if you need to contribute service hours outside of workdays, you can easily log an hour or two each month.

Happy gardening!
