Open Hours

At the beginning of the garden season, please register for Open Hours at — you can choose from the available times (first come first served), and the website also lets you make changes if necessary.

If you are unable to attend your open hours, please make arrangements with another garden member to cover your shift, and notify the Open Hours Coordinator (<<insert email here>>)of the changes.

During your Open Hours shifts, please perform the following duties:

  • At the beginning of your open hours session, please sweep and bag all litter from the sidewalk surrounding the garden, outside the fence.

  • The "Welcome to the Garden" sign belongs on the sidewalk any time the Garden is open.

  • If you have the ability, please Tweet @615_Green something about the garden being open, using #OpenHours (even better if you include a nice photo showing off the garden!). Here's a pre-written tweet you can use.

  • It is your job to welcome visitors, answer questions, hand out brochures, and enforce basic garden rules.

  • Please remain at the front of the garden, by the entrance, rather than working on your community or individual plot.
