Jackson Hole Community Garden

EXPECTATIONS


At the most basic level each gardener is responsible to try and stop the spread of weeds from both inside their plot and the immediate area around their plot. This is primarily done by removing any weeds before they reach the point of going to seed.

The expectations of what weeds are important to remove and what weeds we can let go varies from garden to garden. Hopefully the photos and descriptions laid out below will give you an idea of what we are looking for.

A weekly email will be sent out through the gardening season if your garden falls below the guidelines set forth. You will not receive an email if your garden is weeded. You can opt out of this email, but you will still be responsible for keeping your area weed free.

If your plot is flagged 5 consecutive weeks out of the 14 weeks the garden is open your plot will be forfeited the following year.

Weed Bins


There will be two large weed bins at each garden. These bins will be picked up once a month.

Additional Weed Control


As a board we are investigating other ways to control weeds in the garden. Right now our best bet seems to be a vinegar/salt/soap solution.
