Re: UPDATE --- Pay Your Dues !!!

FYI : If you didn’t get an invoice, check your junk mail. That’s where my email spam filter tossed mine.

 Hello all Gardeners

UPDATE on dues
If you are getting this email and haven’t received your emailed invoice please respond to this email.

Collecting dues
Berkeley is fortunate to have a volunteer, Luke, who records the collection of our garden dues.  He also works a full time job.   He collects and records the checks every couple of weeks. If your check doesn’t show up as a withdrawal immediately from your bank account please be patient.
But we do ask, out of consideration that you pay now.

Last day to pay is  FRIDAY, March 19天是319日,星期五

If you have paid with Paypal there is a lag there too.  We need to withdraw the funds from the Paypal account to our bank.  Again, this isn’t being done daily.  Paypal will notify you when the money is withdrawn.

Paying with Cash
Some of our elder Asian members prefer to pay in cash - if you know any of these gardeners please reach out and check on them.  We will collect their cash payments during cleanup weekend April 16 - 17 - 18th, when we have the dumpster.   More details will be posted in the garden.  

Most of these gardeners do not have emails listed so we have reached out to them through the mail.    There is no Annual Renewal meeting /last day to pay this year at Project Place - they are closed for public use.

Planting season
This weekend is the meteorological beginning of spring — so its time to plant your cold weather seeds in the ground - once the snow disappears……..radishes, turnips, spinach, peas are just a few things you can start early.  

Remember we still have RABBITS -- be sure to cover those tender greens.

My next email blast will outline some of the volunteer work we need your help with.  Even though the garden is still restricted by pandemic social distancing there are some tasks that will need attention.  

If you have decided not to return to the garden please recycle and return your gate keys and if you had a garden padlock return those keys too.

Thanks

2020 Highlights, New Events - Trustees Gardeners' Gazette

Sarah Hutt
 

Hello Gardeners - I’m forwarding the Trustees newsletter - if you decide to sign up for any of their courses or talks please let me know - everyone is invited to ZOOM the Gardeners Gathering in March.
News about Berkeley will be coming this week.
Hope you are all well - almost time to start your indoor seedlings!!!!
See you in the garden,


2020 Highlights from the
Boston Community Gardens
Most importantly, the gardens stayed open and safely operating through the pandemic. Hats off to our volunteer coordinators and others whose hard work and flexibility kept these vital sources of mental and physical health running.
We were awed by the wave of interest in gardening and happy to connect eager learners with online programs and resources. Highlights included the beloved Cooking the Harvest for Kids series, a fantastic virtual Master Urban Gardener session, and a Container Gardening workshop with 300 participants! 
We saw more than twice as many plot requests as ever before. New members joined our gardens in large numbers and experienced gardeners lent a hand to make their season a success. In a time when many of us were isolated from community and friends, the gardens provided an opportunity to build connection, be outdoors safely, and grow food. 
When the pandemic hit, we knew our City Natives plant sales would have to look different but we also knew it was more important than ever to grow veggie seedlings and native plants for our community. We built a website and debuted an online ordering and contactless pickup system. We were excited to welcome many old as well as new faces to the nursery. We're migrating to a new site for plant sales this coming year--look for us on the Trustees online store.
Our stewardship team completed several key projects. The Leyland Street garden had the finishing touches put on its new sun-shelter. New bulletin boards went up at several gardens. Hazard trees were removed and new beds were planted. Additionally, our team secured grant funding for future work at Symphony Road, Oscar Parker, and City Natives. We’ve got quite a few improvements to look back on, and more to look forward to in 2021!
Kick off the gardening season with The Trustees, the City of Boston, and the gardening community!
  • Michael Twitty, author of The Cooking Gene, on Black foodways & culinary justice

Snow Emergency in Effect at 6 p.m.

Sarah Hutt
 


CITY of BOSTON

Snow emergency in effect starting at 6 p.m. 

Mayor Walsh declares snow emergency, parking ban in effect today at 6 p.m.

Residents are urged to take caution, remove cars parked on posted snow emergency arteries by 6 p.m. and to follow snow regulations at Boston.gov/snow.

Total snow accumulations may range between 9 to 13 inches, with the potential to up to 15 inches in some areas. Wind gusts as high as 45 mph are expected. Dry weather paired with colder temperatures and wind chill are anticipated on Thursday and Friday following the storm.

City-sponsored meal distribution sites and some COVID-19 testing sites will be closed on Thursday. More information on impacted City services is included below.

Snow emergency in effect starting at 6 p.m. Wednesday, December 16.

What this means for you:

  • A parking ban is in effect starting at 6 p.m.
  • At 6 p.m., vehicles parked on a posted snow emergency artery will start to be towed.
  • These discounted and participating garages will be available starting at 4 p.m. today.
  • Trash and Recycling pick-up is canceled citywide on Thursday, December 17. Neighborhoods with a Thursday and Friday pick-up schedule will be delayed by one day. Residents are encouraged to download the Trash Day App for alerts.
  • Property owners must fully clear snow, sleet and ice from sidewalks and curb ramps abutting the property within three hours after the snowfall ends or three hours after sunrise if the snow ends overnight.
  • Curb and pedestrian ramps to the street should be cleared fully and continually over the duration of the storm to ensure accessibility for individuals with disabilities. If a storm will last over an extended period of time, property owners are asked to continually check ramps abutting their property for compliance.
  • Removal of snow, ice from a private property to the street or sidewalk is prohibited.
Note: Failure to comply with the rules can result in fines issued by PWD's Code Enforcement Division. Fines associated with improper removal of snow can be found online.

City service changes

  • Starting at midnight, Street Sweeping is canceled until further notice.
  • All Boston Public Schools (BPS) school buildings will be closed. All students, including students who were scheduled to report for in-person learning, will attend classes online for a partial day that will end 2.5 hours earlier than the regularly scheduled dismissal time. There will be no in-person learning on Thursday
  • As indicated in signage posted in BPS school parking lots, parking is not allowed during snowstorms. Vehicles may be towed if they are parked in BPS parking lots this evening.
  • All BPS meal distribution sites will be open today Wednesday, December 16 until 6:00 p.m. instead of Thursday, December 17 to distribute extra meals. Other meal sites in the City will also be closed on Thursday, December 17. Residents are encouraged to check with their meal site for hours.
  • The City-sponsored mobile COVID-19 testing sites at the Washington Park Mall, 1432 Hyde Park Avenue, and the Ana M. Cole Community Center will be closed on Thursday. For other updates on testing site availability and closures, please check our hours of operation.
  • Boston City Hall and 1010 Mass Ave will be closed to the public on Thursday, December 17. Residents with appointments scheduled on Thursday, December 17 will be contacted by City departments to reschedule.
    Boston Public Library locations will be closed, including BPL To Go services.
    All Boston Centers for Youth & Families are closed and in-person programming is canceled.

Caring for yourself and others

  • If you see homeless and vulnerable individuals out in the cold who appear immobile, disoriented or underdressed for the cold, please call 911.
  • The Boston Public Health Commission (BPHC) coordinates a city-wide network of emergency shelters, outreach providers, city agencies and first responders to assist those in need of shelter. Boston's emergency shelters are open 24 hours and will accept any person in need. Men can access shelter at the 112 Southampton Street Shelter, and women should go to the Woods-Mullen Shelter at 794 Massachusetts Ave. BPHC and the City work closely with shelter providers in the city to ensure that no client is without shelter, food, resources, and a warm respite from the cold.
  • The BPHC Engagement Center is open from 6:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. In addition to providing an indoor heated space, it offers a range of basic amenities and comfort items, such as clean bathroom facilities, water, coffee, and light snacks.
  • During extreme cold weather, street outreach teams operate with extended hours and provide mobile outreach vans on the streets in the evening and throughout the day.
Use caution when shoveling, and help neighbors when you can

Safety reminders

  • Keep catch basins and fire hydrants clear. Here is a map of catch basins and fire hydrants. You can assist in keeping hydrants clear of snow so the Boston Fire Department can access them quickly in case of emergency.
  • Shoveling snow requires significant exertion; please be cautious and pay attention to symptoms. Stop if you feel chest pain, shortness of breath, lightheaded, nauseous/vomiting. Call 911 if those symptoms do not resolve quickly.
  • Snow piles can make navigating intersections dangerous for walkers and drivers. Please take extra care when turning corners with snow piles that might limit visibility.
  • Carbon monoxide poisoning is a concern during winter weather, especially with the use of generators. Residents should use their home heating systems wisely and safely, and have a working carbon monoxide detector on each floor of the home. Call 911 immediately if you suspect carbon monoxide poisoning.
  • Sitting in a car while idling can be deadly if the tailpipe is blocked. Do not let children sit in an idling car while shoveling. Clear any household exhaust pipes of snow like gas exhaust from the heating system or dryer.
  • Have a contractor check the roof to see if snow needs to be removed. If roof snow can be removed from the ground with the use of a snow-rake, do so with caution. Avoid working from ladders and be mindful of slippery surfaces.

Re: Notice of Alice Chan's passing

Alice Chan
 

Hi everyone, I just wanted to pass along the link for the zoom meeting for the funeral services.

https://zoom.us/j/98389344526?pwd=NWYvdVdhTTJrdkEwOXpEL3dqVVBvQT09


Re: Notice of Alice Chan's passing

Alice Chan
 

HI everyone, this is Alice's granddaughter (Eugenia). Just wanted to add that there's a 25 person limit for the service, but the funeral home is going to set up a zoom meeting for family and friends who can't attend and I will pass along that info when I get it. I also wanted to thank BCG and the gardeners for giving my grandma (and grandpa) decades of happiness and for friendships that they would not have otherwise had.  I truly believe that BCG played a huge role in what kept my grandma going after my grandpa past, even in her 90's she'd go 2-3 times a day, the garden was her happy place.
 
Thank you all so much,
Eugenia Loo

DETAILS for Love Your Block cleanup this weekend

Sarah Hutt
 

Hi All

This is just a reminder that The Love Your Block Fall Clean Up is SATURDAY November 21st from 9am-12pm

This is not a garden sponsored cleanup

It is sponsored by the Boston Public Works Department. This means you have to follow the rules for trash removal that they have requested.  

You need to have anything you want taken away on the E. Berkeley/Shawmut Ave corner sidewalk by NOON.

Public Works will pick up trash from the E. Berkeley/Shawmut Ave corner only.

Bring your own garbage bags or leaf bags for pickup.
Please dont overfill the bags - if you cant lift it its too heavy.

I hope many of you will take advantage of this last opportunity to clean your garden.  With the onslaught of rats in the garden removing all rotting fruits is mandatory - remember we have neighbors who do not like looking out their windows at rats scurrying around the garden.

questions?
respond to this email
thank you 
Sarah

We need folks to set up a Snow Team to do minimal shoveling between visits from The Trustees who use a snow blower.  If you shoveled last year and would like to return let me know.  If you are a new member - join the team - 

Berkeley Garden has an arrangement with the owners of our property, The Trustees to help with snow removal.

The Trustees take care of the bulk of it  using a snowblower to clear Tremont, Ave, E. Berkeley Street, and Shawmut Ave. 

Our job is to keep the sidewalk ramps clear, keep drains along sidewalks open, shovel around trash receptacles - and around the hydrants in larger snowfalls so there is access to them, and spread sand if we have had a thaw during the day to protect the overnight ice from forming.

If you are interested please respond.
