February Happy Hour & March Meeting

We’re gearing up for the 2019 season with a February Happy Hour and our first meeting in March.

Come mingle with current and future gardeners. New gardeners, learn tips for growing in PA. Experienced gardeners, share tales of past harvests. Or don’t talk about flora at all and just get to know your fellow gardeners.

Happy Hour

Our first meeting of 2019 will follow in March. We’ll discuss Winter happenings, preparing for Spring, and upcoming events, so mark your calendars.

First Garden Meeting

  • Date: Tuesday, March 17, 2019
  • Time: 7pm

  1. Each plot will have between 1 and 3 members.
  2. Member gardeners from the previous season will have first preference and may choose either the same plot or a vacant plot (if one exists).
  3. Existing members must pay annual dues no later than April 15 of every year or their membership may be considered expired and their plot will be released.
  4. New members must pay dues by April 15 or within 2 weeks of their plot assignments or their plots will be released. New members may not work on their plots until dues are received.
  5. Annual membership dues are based on plots. One plot is $45.00 and effective for the term of the calendar year, payable to the Conshohocken Community Garden.  Dues for double plots are $65 per year.  Fall-only membership plots (if available) are $20 and are available Aug 1 effective for the remainder of the calendar year.
  6. New double plots will not be available until after June 15 of each year and are limited to members who have gardened at least one full year and are in good standing. Double plot members may have their second plot revoked for the next year, with the exception of Founding members (2012) that have maintained their original two-plot membership in good standing and never relinquished.  Founding members are allowed two plots until they relinquish one or both plots.
  7. Up to three plots may be reserved for schools, other community organizations, or others as approved by the members. The gardeners in these plots are not considered members, do not pay dues, and do not have a right to vote as members.  However, the gardeners in these three plots must meet the same plot standards as any other gardeners and sign waivers.
