Overview of Fulton County Garden Rules

  1. Each gardener is responsible for the maintenance and upkeep of their garden plot. Watering, weeding, harvesting, and any other garden related maintenance are all the responsibility of the gardener. Gardeners may arrange for other gardeners to water their plots.

  2. Tools will be made available for use during the regularly scheduled work time each week.  A limited amount of equipment (tools and hoses) will be available in the GROWL garden storage bn for use during non-scheduled garden work hours. Regularly scheduled work times will be posted on the garden bulletin board.

  3. Each gardener will be given the code to the storage bin for access to tools and watering equipment. Gardeners are responsible for bringing the code each time they work in the garden. Keep storage bins locked at all times and return all tools.

  4. Children are welcome in the garden but must be accompanied by an adult, and must be supervised at all times.

  5. Each gardener must complete a liability waiver form before any work in the garden can begin.

  6. Garden plots should be cared for at least once a week. It is the gardener's responsibility to notify the coordinator if he or she is not able to care for their plot in any given week.  If any plot remains unattended for more than three weeks, that plot is subject to reassignment.

  7. The application of herbicides (weed killers) to the garden plots is prohibited.

  8. Plot fees are due in full before the garden season begins.
