Clinton Community Garden Steering Committee minutes December 1, 2015
The meeting was called to order at 7:35. In attendance were Tom Cayler, Charles Gerber, Debbie Mullins, Laura McGill and Andy Padian, and were a quorum.
A discussion of SC motions and implementation schedule was opened by Tom. As a recent SC decision was not given a timetable, the implementer of the timetable moved too quickly for some. Discussion in future to add a timetable to motions if they appear to be too much work for some individuals.
Motion to allow hellebones in middle bench to the north of the garden was tabled to next meeting.
Lloyd Bishop requested 3 bags of Peat Moss for the 45th Street Block Association tree beds. Charles Moved, Tom seconded, passed unanimously
