COVID-19 Ongoing Procedure Reminder

As the COVID-19 pandemic continues, we’d like to remind members & non-members alike that special guidelines for use at all NWCGS gardens continue to remain in place.

For Members:

1. At this time, we are asking members to limit their gardening crew to no more than two people. This means, please do not bring visitors to the garden with you and please bring no more than one household member with you when you tend to your plot.

2. The 2m social distancing guideline set forth by the Province must also be followed at the garden. This means if there isn’t space for you to garden as there are already people in the garden working, please wait or come back at a later time. Give each other space when navigating the rows and the shed.

3. Gloves must be worn while handling all communal tools. This includes hoses and watering cans.

4. Please wash or sanitize your hands before and after entering the garden.

5. Please be kind & considerate of other members.

For Non-Members:

We are asking that non-members refrain from visiting the gardens at this time. This is following the BCCDC and Provincial order regarding community gardens.

Signage is up at all gardens stating the above and the NWCGS will update when these procedures change.

We thank all our members and non-members alike for working together to ensure the safety of one another during this unprecedented time.
