Norwood Community Gardens Application

Suggested Pledge for Norwood Community Garden members:

· I will keep weeds down and maintain the areas immediately surrounding my plot, if any.
· If my plot becomes unkempt, I understand I will be given one (1) week’s notice to clean it up. At that time, it will be reassigned or tilled in.
· I will keep trash an litter cleaned from the plot, as well as from adjacent pathways and fences.
· I will participate in the fall clean-up of the garden.
· I will help pick crops.
· I agree to volunteer 1 hour toward group community gardening efforts.
· I will NOT bring pets to the gardens.

I understand Norwood Community Gardens is an organic gardening project and does not use pesticides, nor does it permit gardeners to use pesticides in their plots.
I understand that the Norwood Service League, the garden committee, nor owners of the land are responsible for my actions.

I therefore agree to hold harmless Al Neyer, Inc (owner of land), SHP Leading Design, City of Norwood, Norwood Service League, et al for any liability, damage, loss or claim that occurs in connection with use of the gardens by me or any of my guests.
