7/29: 2021: WATER IS OFF due to underground pipe break in section C. We hope to have it fixed on Saturday. Volunteers welcome!
We greatly appreciate the efforts of many fellow gardeners to help with this complicated repair.
To prevent future issues, do not leave your hose connected to the valve. The white PVC plastic pipes are fragile and break easily.
NO PARKING IN THE ALLEY BETWEEN SECTION A AND D!! The cause of the most recent break was a car running into a water valve while trying to maneuver around an illegally parked car.
June 2021: Inspections begin this month! Make sure your plot is in tip-top shape
