set up and repair, maintain hoses, connections, etc.
Call members with no emails throughout the year to provide advance notice about general meetings, important garden business, orientation dates, upcoming events, joining committees, etc. Once the phone tree has their lists they should be able to take the initiative to make these calls when they see email updates about any of these items.
Help with maintenance in the garden including garbage (take out and buy bags), tools (repair and buy new), shoveling snow, sweeping, etc.
Maintenance of Community Areas
There are several areas in the Garden that are 'community' areas but not part of the Community Plot. These areas include the parts to the right and left of the main entrance, the corner by Luscious' plot, the triangular corner by the path going to Leeza's plot, the small tree area near there, the point currently serving as the gathering area while we are under Park's construction.
In Garden Announcement Board
Create signage and post important information in the garden throughout the year including upcoming meeting dates and locations, meeting minutes, important announcements, etc. Most of this information can just be printed straight from emails. (Currently in the construction area)
Plan events throughout the season. Some regular events are It's My Park Day (in May and October), Make Music NY (June), coordinating any BBQs (usually around July 4th), education events and extras the committee sees fit. Create signage for events for posting.
