Best Practices for Community Gardening During COVID-19 - Supporting Gardeners

  • Maintain regular and timely communication with gardeners. Keep gardeners up-to-date on guidelines. Be available to respond to questions and concerns.
  • Share inspiration to keep gardeners hopeful and engaged--such as garden images or quotes. Encourage gardener communication through an email list, Google Group or Facebook Group.
  • Share remote resources for continued preparations and garden learning--such as how-to videos, free on-line gardening classes, and the Extension Master Gardener Hot-line.
  • CDC advises the use of simple cloth face coverings as an additional, voluntary public health measure.
