Aloha Gardeners!

NCG Updates September 20, 2014

From this point forward we will be having monthly inspections of both the condition of member plots and community work-hour records. As you know, members must do the following to maintain their garden memberships:

  1. Pay yearly membership fees by the due dates.
  2. Fill out and keep updated liability forms and contact information for the board records.
  3. Abide by the NCG Rules and Regulations.
  4. Keep your plot weeded and cultivated on an ongoing basis.
  5. Keep the path around all four sides of your plot weeded on an ongoing basis.
  6. Work a minimum of 2 hours per month per plot on community projects and upkeep of common- areas and record them in the work hours log in the main garden shed. (EXAMPLE: I have 3 plots so I worked 6 hours weeding the orchard.) Members must pay $10.00 per hour for unworked community hours.

Failure to meet these requirements on an ongoing basis can result in loss of your garden membership. Any questions about these items or requests for a work assignment may be directed to the board in writing or by email. The Garden Council decisions are final in all matters.

We will be sending out our first notice letters this month for September plot inspections/ August work-hours log. If you failed to enter hours in the work log, or have not been caring for your plot or paths, you should expect to receive a letter out-lining the corrections you need to make in order to meet your obligations to the community.

About napiligarden

We are a community organization of gardeners farming 180 individual plots to organically grow food for our families and community. Our mission is to cultivate a community rooted in sustainability by providing a place for cooperative organic gardening. The Napili Community Garden organizating council is made up of an active, enthusiastic and engaged group of gardeners who have been busy building infrastructure and have just formalized the structure and governance of our community organization. Ulupono Initiative has generously subleased a 3.6 acre of land just above Honoapi'ilani Hwy for use as the Napili Community Garden. The garden is located on former pineapple lands that have been out of production for a sufficient period of time to be eligible for organic certification.
