2008 Membership Dues Needed by March 1

A belated "Happy New Year" to everyone!

With the start of 2008, it's time again to collect annual membership dues for the garden. Your dues help pay for needed supplies, ongoing maintenance, and unexpected expenses. 2008 membership dues are needed by March 1.

Over the past year, we used garden dues to cover the expenses of a number of projects, including the purchase of new tools, plants for the common area gardens, supplies for workshops, and food and other items for our garden barbecue in September. I'm looking forward to working with everyone this year to continue making our garden an even more special place for the neighborhood.

Please think about whether you intend to actively garden this year. Gardeners agree to use their plots year-round on a regular basis, at least once a month. And gardeners are expected to participate in at least one of the four annual workdays.

Annual dues for the garden are on a sliding scale as follows (choose whatever contribution level works for you):

$12 – gardener
$25 – butterfly
$50 – sunshine
$100 – golden trowel
or you can choose your own contribution amount

If you are interested in renewing your membership for the garden, please send a check made out to "Page Street Garden" to:

Michael McCauley
881 Hayes Street
San Francisco, CA 94117-2614

I'm anxious to make garden plots available to the folks on our waiting list, so please let me know by March 1 whether you intend to renew your garden membership. If you plan on giving up your garden plot, I would appreciate hearing from you as soon as possible.

Give me a call if you have any questions (902-9537). Thank you!
