Registration for the 2019 growing season
Notes for the upcoming season
The bridges on Old PB (east side of the garden) are scheduled for replacement during 2018 and the road will be closed during that time. We have been assured that a walking bridge will be placed over Badger Mill Creek to allow access to the garden from the park-and-ride parking lot immediately to the north.
Timers will not be allowed this year on watering systems. If found, they will be removed and placed in your plot.
BPCG (as well as a few other community gardens) experienced severe flooding during the 2016 and 2017 seasons. Gardens with raised beds and straw bale structures suffered significantly less injury than gardens planted on the existing surface. During the fall of 2017, we stored several cubic yards of topsoil for use during the 2018 season in free-standing raised mounds, raised beds surrounded by timber, etc. Early this spring we will provide gardeners with information concerning the number of wheelbarrow loads allotted per plot and information regarding construction of raised beds.
Straw bales will not be purchased this year due to the road construction and delivery of the bales. Topsoil was instead purchased to help with flooding (see FLOODING CONCERNS above).
