Good morning everyone. As promised, we have made the updates to the registration forms and garden rules. The forms are linked here.
They are the Rules, the Registration form and Waiver. We do ask that you complete and return the Registration and Waiver forms. The waiver must be acknowledged and returned before working at the garden. The registration form does also confirm you have read and acknowledge the rules.
The change to the rules this year is to the part about attendance at our common workdays. While it is easiest for us to make progress on common tasks when gardeners can all attend together, we recognize that not all can attend, especially with Covid and corresponding health concerns. The addition to the rules formalizes our informal practice – In the event you cannot attend a given workday, please let us know, and we will try to find you an outstanding task that can be handled individually.
The committee will try to send reminders and request confirmation of attendance for each planned workday, and like last year, we may end up providing alternate dates to ensure we remain onside with any restrictions in place. It really does help our planning when everyone replies to those emails!
As for payments, if your bank supports it, you can send an e-transfer to the garden email address firstname.lastname@example.org . It will be received by the treasurer [ Simon], in trust, and once all payments are received, he will write a cheque to the Garden, care of the Church. The same email address will also work if you are a PayPal user. If etransfer will not work for you, let us know, and we will find a way to coordinate accepting a cheque. The cheque would be payable to St Barnabas Anglican Church, with a memo indicating it is for your garden registration. The costs are the same as last year. New gardeners will pay a $20 refundable deposit. The fee for a full bed is $45 , and a half bed is $25.
