Rabbits and Rats---Ted B103 has been taking care of this on his own for the past 6 years.  It would be great to have one or two people to work with him- keep track of which gardens have rat traps, be a contact if anyone has a rat problem, and coordinate with the exterminator.


And as a reminder - if you have been working in the garden send in your hours to cleanups

 If you are not retuning next year please let us know - we will make arrangements for you to return your keys when you are done with your garden.

Berkeley Garden update and last chance cleanup

Sarah Hutt
 

To all

Thank you to everyone that made it out this weekend to clean out their plot and help pick up trash in the garden.  It was great to see so many people working in the garden.  

Your contributions over the summer made it a great season.  Thank you to everyone that pitched in to maintain our garden community by either working on a team or independently to perform general care and kindness throughout the season.   It was great to see people come out for Monday night cleanups and social hour and those that worked on their own to pick up trash;  great to see everyone that came out in the spring to help get renewal notices out and staffing our annual renewal at Project Place; our translators for their hard work translating all our documents and notices; recording work hours at cleanups; the compost team that manages the multiple soil deliveries; everyones help with our spring and fall cleanups by ordering and delivering coffee and donuts, help setting up, and all the tasty foods for our potluck; ordering daffodil bulbs; sign making; making sure the gates are locked every single night and opening in the morning;  meeting the dumpster and getting dumpster permits, taking care of the plumbing, monitoring and giving out keys and garden padlocks; recording community hours; updating the member rules; our treasurer; Leadership Committee who help keep the garden moving forward, the snow removal team; working with the professional pest exterminator and baiting rat traps; attending Trustee meetings and participating on the alley fence committee; watering, weeding, and planting in the common areas and C Row, and……...

If you think you didn't get credit for work you did this summer please sent to Susan to record at  cleanups@...  include: name, plot number, number of hours, description of task, and picture if you have it.

Remember there are daffodil bulbs available if you are interested in planting them in your garden or in the common areas.

If you still have cleaning to do there is another cleanup the City sponsors this weekend November 10 called Love Your Block.  We need someone to act as the garden contact so arragments can be made tor trash pickup.  They usually come around noon, everything needs to be set out on the sidewalk for pickup, so a designated area needs to be agreed on.

If you are giving up your garden membership we will miss you - thank you for being part of the garden, for some of you its been many wonderful years — please make arrangements to return your keys for the gates and if you have a garden padlock please return your keys so we can reuse your garden padlock.  

Thank you 
Leadership Committee

One last cleanup and other things to do

Sarah Hutt
 

Hi all
Saturday, November 10 is a final chance to cleanup your garden.  The City of Boston will be holding its fall cleanup.  Trash will be collected from the sidewalk along 
E. Berkeley and Shawmut Ave.  Please let us know if you intend to help that day.  Cleanup will run till about 1pm on that day.

Remember there are daffodil bulbs available to be planted -  plant them in your garden or in the common areas.


Help needed
SNOW REMOVAL Team - we need a team to help clear snow from the sidewalks.  We will still have  a snow removal company come but we need to just manage sanding the sidewalks and keeping the area clear between larger removal by the company.  If you are interested in working on the garden team you will be credited double hours for your efforts.

Remember
If you are giving up your garden membership we will miss you - thank you for being part of the garden, for some of you its been many wonderful years — please make arrangements to return your keys for the gates and if you have a garden padlock please return your keys so we can reuse your garden padlock.

57 days till spring

Sarah Hutt
 

To all
Just a reminder that if you aren’t returning to the garden this summer please let us know - we are preparing the Renewal Mailings which will go out Feb 2 so save a stamp - save a tree- and let us know.  Have you moved since last spring?  Please send in your new address so you don’t miss your Renewal invoice.
 
Thank you to the snow crew - who have been doing a terrific job keeping the sidewalks around the garden clear.
 
We were notified by Jeremy, our Trustee representative that he has started to do some cleanup in our garden that we didnt get to last year.  He fixed the broken alley fence on the Shawmut end and cleared debris at the base of the Berkeley sidewalk fence which include, raking out the border along Berkeley and removing trash and leaves, removing weed trees, and cutting back some shrubs and vines that were reaching into pathways. He then returned to complete the Dwight Alley side of garden.  It is the Trustee policy to remove all vines and branches that come through the outside fences or overhang the paths.
 
A couple of other things:
The two dead Ginkgo trees along E. Berkeley will be removed in March/early April and the three large Locust trees will be pruned, to thin and lift the trees branches.  The cost of this is paid for by our garden dues.
 
Berkeley Street border. In the spring Jeremy will be doing some regenerative pruning on the dogwoods and mulch the border.  The dogwoods will  be cut back to ground level to keep them from becoming overgrown and make it easier to clean debris and weeds from around them.  The border will be healthier and weeds reduced with mulching and pruning.  This work will happen in the spring - April or May - if you would like to help Jeremy please let me know.
 
We have requested the return of our garden signs that were removed when the fence was being scrapped.  If anyone would like to work with Jeremy to update our signs  let me know.
 
More information soon,

Reminder Annual Garden Gathering March 23

Sarah Hutt
 

Hi all,

Just a reminder that March 23rd is the annual Gardeners Gathering at Northeastern University.  This is a city wide open house for the city’s gardeners to come together.


They are still looking for people to teach workshops, set up an exhibitors gallery. or sell products.  Here are the links to sign up if you want to teach a workshop, have a table in the exhibitors' gallery, or advertise in the brochure.

This year's featured guest speaker is Aziz Dehkan, Executive Director of the New York City Community Garden Coalition. Aziz is an activist, community organizer, former organic farmer, and a tireless member of #Resist. He has worked for many social and environmental organizations including Mother Jones, The Coalition for the Homeless, The Fortune Society, and Peace Action Network of NY. Aziz will address the history, current state, and future of community gardens in NYC, looking at them through the lens of social justice and climate change protection. He’ll speak to gentrification and racial inequality and delve into how community gardens can be in the vanguard of climate change monitoring, adaption, and mitigation.

Hello Sarah et al.,

I am writing to confirm that I am renewing my plot B125 this year and just mailed the check today.

I actually mailed the check on Saturday but it came to me yesterday, as I hadn't noticed that the envelope had a sticker with my name on it and Luke's Box in the return address corner.

Thank you, and if the check does not arrive by Saturday I hope that I can still be counted since I will be out of town that day.

Thanks!

Hi Sarah
We are away and haven’t checked mail. We sent a check a long time ago. Since several have had their check returned I am just checking that you received ours.
Looking forward to spring

Garden dues

Sarah Hutt
 

yes Sandra A144 your check has cleared - 

Our treasurer Luke has the job of  logging in all the checks so it takes a while to do the 100 plus checks as they arrive via snail mail.  He tries to log in checks every couple of days.

On Friday, Feb 22  I will send out an email listing all the checks and PayPal payments that have been received - 

Thanks
