We’re starting our 3rd year and we are looking for a few new members!
Below are some details about the garden and membership. If you are interested in participating, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The garden is located at the George Washington Middle School in Alexandria, VA. We have 11 large and 5 small beds to grow veggies and herbs. It is a cooperative garden so all members participate in growing, watering, and weeding all areas. We share the garden area with GW students and teachers who use the garden in their coursework.
This year, our first work party is Sunday, March 10th from 2 to 5. All members are required to attend a few work parties a year–these events are where we all get together to take on the big garden duties: cleaning up, mulching, composting, prepping the beds and other tasks where a big group is helpful and more fun!
During the summer (once regular watering, weeding, and harvesting are necessary), we have 3 regularly scheduled 2-hour work sessions a week. Members are asked to attend at least 2 to 3 work sessions a month. Everything we grow is divided among the members.
Yearly dues are $25 per person/family.
