Meeting Minutes, 4/21/15

  • Plot news
    • Most are assigned – can still turn in forms but be patient as the process is time-consuming
    • We still need stewards for two areas – Building 200 rows 3 and 5 – please contact garden@anl.gov if you might be interested!
    • FMS says that weather permitting, they may be able to start tilling this weekend in the courtyards – the rest will follow in the next few weeks
    • To prepare for tilling, please remove all debris from your plot, including cages, stakes, rocks, etc.
    • Stewards, please contact garden@anl.gov to let us know that you’ve checked all plots in your area and they are ready for tilling
    • After tilling, FMS will drop off all the equipment stored last winter at the correct sites
    • Please don’t store yard waste or equipment against the walls – we’d like to till all the way to the wall (also deters rodents/pests)
  • Fruit trees onsite
    • FMS planted a second round of fruit trees on the south side near Building 200 – come take a look
