2016 Garden Sign Up

The sign up for the 2016 growing season will be Saturday, April 9th at the Whitehorse Public Library Meeting Room from noon until 2pm.

This is a first come first serve signup (I can't hold any plots for anyone).
Those gardeners from 2015 who fulfilled their volunteer time will get first choice of the plots. Anyone who did not complete their 12 hours of volunteer time will be expected to complete the remainder if they expect to get their plot back from last season. Otherwise, your name will just register in the general signup with the new gardeners.
Fees for new gardeners are $20 annual membership fee + $20 bed deposit + $5 shed key deposit for a total of $45.
Returning gardeners only pay the $20 annual membership (and the $5 shed key deposit if you need a new one)
We accept cash or cheque.

See you there!
