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 and Covid-19 Access Agreement whether they are renting a bed, assisting a gardener who is renting a bed or are volunteering.

Scheduled IPO Sessions

There were NO scheduled In-person Orientation dates conducted in 2021 — all sessions were conducted by direct invitation (via text) to the gardeners and volunteers involved.

Using “direct invitations” proved very efficient and will likely be used again in the Spring of 2022.

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” or “new assistant gardeners” will be contacted via text (or email) to arrange a mutually suitable date and time for your orientation.

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

New Volunteers

Please keep in mind that — you will NOT be able to access the garden to volunteer until you have attended an In-person Orientation.

ALL “new volunteers” will be contacted via text (or email) to arrange a mutually suitable date and time for your orientation.

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