  1. A Haddonfield resident or authorized individual must maintain the garden plot.
  2. Garden plots must be maintained throughout the growing season, which runs from April 15th to November 15th
  3. You must be actively gardening by May 1st or your garden  plot assignment may be revoked.
  4. The path next to your plot must be weeded and the wood chips refurbished throughout the growing season.
  5. You must be at your plot the entire time that you are watering, and turn off the main water valve when you are finished.
  6. Your garden must be cleaned up before the November inspection date on the CWG calendar.
  7. No plastic fencing is permitted.
  8. Use of Pesticides, Herbicides and Fungicides are prohibited at CWG.
  9. Organic methods of gardening are strongly encouraged.
  10. Gardeners are responsible for the amendment, enrichment and/or adjustment of the soil within their individual plots as required for the crops they choose to grow.
