If you are unable to tend to your plot on a weekly basis, it is your responsibility to find an appropriate caretaker during the time of your absence or you will be charged $20/hour for Plant It Nursery to maintain it.
5. Gardeners must be present at their plots while watering them. Please conserve water as much as possible
6. Please help with the maintenance of the shared pathways/walkways. Gardeners must keep pathways/walkways free of rocks, tools or other obstacles. Remove weeds when possible.

10. Clean up after yourself and keep your plot neat and tidy. Hoses and tools should be cleaned and neatly stacked. All garbage is to be taken home with you or placed in the dump trailer. No trash from home is allowed.
11. Respect your fellow gardeners. Plantings must be kept within the borders of your own plot. Allow space for vines or spreading crops. Keep the pathways and fence lines adjacent to your plot clear. Consider how trellised or tall crops may affect neighboring plots; don't shade your neighbor.
