Watering Restrictions

Gardeners, please be advised that the new watering regulations also apply to our garden:

Residents are prohibited from watering their lawns between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m., and watering is limited to 15 minutes a day.

Residents are also prohibited from using a hose to wash off paved surfaces and must use a hose equipped with an automatic shut-off nozzle when washing their cars.

Residential DWP customers who violate the rules will be fined $100, which is double the old fine of $50 for a first-time offense. The fine for businesses that violate the rules quadrupled to $200.

Repeat residential offenders can be fined up to $300 and commercial customers up to $600.

August Meeting Review

We are sorry we missed you at the August meeting of the Crenshaw Community Garden.

Here is a review of the topics discussed:

Crenshaw Community Garden
Monthly Meeting August 9, 2008

We distributed two plots - 12 1/2 went to Mohummad Houssan and 21 will now be occupied by Myeong Kim Soon.

The attendees of the meeting cleared the northern fence area which had become overgrown. Thank you to everyone for your help with this.

Ari Moon has been contacted regarding her neglected plot.

Soon Kim has agreed to clean up her plot within thirty days. Please assist her in any way you can.

Mr. Kim has agreed to remove the second bee hive that he placed in the garden. The current hive is thriving, but please always exercise caution when working in the area around the hive.

Pepperdine University will work on cleaning up the median area when they come out for their volunteer day.

As always, please turn off the water when you leave the garden, pick up any trash you may see and respect our space.

Thank you so much.

See you at the September meeting.
