Some important rules for working on this committee

  1. A minimum of one hour work is required to receive credit.
  2. Beyond one hour, work will be recorded in 1/2 hour increments only.
  3. You are responsible for bringing your own tools, as the tool shed may not be open when you wish to work.
  4. Any weeded area MUST also be mulched to receive credit. So only weed as much as you can mulch in the time you have.  Mulch is almost always available at the top of Phase III (behind the dumpster) or at the top of Phase IV.
  5. Any work done must be reported within three days of being completed or no credit will be given.
  6. Please direct all work hour credit correspondence to the email address provided below.
  7. If this is absolutely not possible, please leave a deed slip in the mailbox in the wheelbarrow shed marked 'Beautification.'
  8. Please include your name, phase, plot number, work done, work hour credit requested and a brief description of the status of the project, i.e. bottom of main pathway is one half done.
  9. No supervision or instructions will be given for this committee. If you need instructions please arrange to attend a regularly scheduled Saturday workday for directions on proper weeding. (If you claim to have worked four hours weeding a pathway and we find this not to be the case, you will not be permitted to continue working with this group.)
  10. If at all possible, it is suggested to take before and after pictures, in case of any disputes. These may be emailed when you report your hours.
