Position Available: Chairman of the Association
We are looking for a new volunteer Chairman of the Association, either from within or outside the community garden. Here is the description:
Guided by a long-term vision and regular feedback from the Garden board and members, the Chair of the Garden (COG), problem solves real-time issues with an eye to continual improvement of the garden. As point person for all town departments, the public, members, and the board, the COG oversees all administrative procedures, events, and communications internally and externally; channels include in person, email, website, on-site, and Zoom.
Working with managers and other volunteers, the COG:
* Fields inquiries from potential members and others
* Facilitates front-line communications within the Association
* Creates and executes educational programs on-site and on Zoom; distributes resources to attendees
* Facilitates opening, closing, and work days at both garden locations
* Determines web content
Please contact email@example.com if you are interested.
Our mission is to educate our members about organic gardening and to provide opportunities to them so that they can grow and harvest vegetables, herbs and flowers within a welcoming community setting.
Garden plots are open to all residents of Andover and surrounding towns who join our Association. Plots that are turning over are offered yearly to people on the waiting list on a first come, first serve basis. This process begins about March each year and runs though until we are full, usually by May. For 2022, all plots have been taken. If you are interested in signing up for a plot in 2023, please fill in this form.
Each Association member contributes an annual plot fee to cover maintenance. To be part of our association, you must be willing to agree to our requirements. These are fairly standard rules for community gardens, with requirements such as gardening organically and participating in workdays and cleanups; and we do try to help new folks with this request by giving lessons/ideas for how to garden organically. Once rented, you plant up your plot, harvest and maintain your own plot for your own family’s use during the gardening season.
High Plain Garden:Your garden managers are: Yolanda Chico Miller, Lauren Conoscenti, Lisette Pylant, Jane Ward and Viki Vasquez. Viki and Jane are your plant gardening gurus. All other problems (general questions, hoses, water, locks, vacation, etc.) should be raised with your other three managers or the help line: firstname.lastname@example.org.
