Volunteers on the lawn care team take responsibility for ensuring that our paths are mowed and garden plots are edged. They make the garden a much more pleasant place to visit. If we had to slog through long grass or pull the ever-creeping buttercups out by hand, we wouldn’t enjoy our gardening experience nearly as much.
Please make sure not to leave tools, stones or any other objects in the grassy areas around your plot. Also, be sure to tidy up any of your plants that are growing into the pathways. The volunteers are not responsible for working around your straying vegetables, and will trim as needed to keep the paths clear.
The safety of our volunteers is important. If you are one of the fine people on the Abbotsford Community Garden lawn care team, we suggest you take the time to watch these safety videos:
