In-person Orientation


In-person Orientation

Everyone gardening or working by themselves in the Inglewood Community Garden must have attended an In-person Orientation Session and agreed to the ICG Personal Liability Waiver whether they are renting a bed, assisting a gardener who is renting a bed or are volunteering.

In-person Orientations

There are three practical reasons for the In-person Orientation…

1. We can give you a proper introduction to the garden and its resources so that you will be most easily be able to make the best use of them.

2. To ensure that you are aware of best practices in garden safety, use of tools and emergency procedures.

3. To help mitigate the insurance exposure to the ICG, the ICG Board of Directors and the Inglewood Community Association.

Your In-person Orientation session will be arranged by TEXT message or telephone call.

IPO Sessions

  • Orientation sessions will be conducted in small groups.

  • Orientation sessions will commence promptly.

  • Invitees who are late will be requested to attend a subsequent session.

  • Each orientation session should conclude in less than 30 minutes.

New Gardeners

Please remember that — you will NOT be able to access the garden to tend to your own bed until you have attended an In-person Orientation.

ALL “new gardeners” and “new assistant gardeners” will be contacted via text, telephone or email, to arrange a mutually suitable date and time for the In-person Orientation.

IF you are unavoidably detained, for whatever reason, on the date of your session — please do not turn up late — make alternate arrangements subsequently.
