Garden Clean-Up

Greetings Gardeners,

It’s that time again.  Tomorrow, Sunday, November 13th at 9:00 am we will take down the fences, roll up the hoses and put the gardens to bed. The forecast looks reasonably warm. As you prepare your plot for next season, please remember that all debris should be deposited in the upper garden compost pile.

If you can’t make tomorrow, but have time this afternoon, please feel free to get started.  The zip ties can be cut and the fence stakes can be pulled.

Please bring your work gloves and your 2017 garden payment: $40/full plot, $20/half – checks payable to Kathy Tefft.

See you tomorrow in the garden.

Please bring your work gloves and your ideas for the new season.  If you haven’t had a chance to pay your garden fee, please bring your check made out to Kathy Tefft (Hanover Community Gardens). The full plot fee is $40 and the half is $20.

Last Plastic Pot Collection

Last one of the season!

Saturday, September 20th
9:00 AM – Noon
Longacre’s Nursery

Longacre’s Nursery is located at 220 Mechanic Street, Lebanon, NH. There is still time to clear the decks of all those surplus pots and trays. All types of plastic plant pots accepted, including the flimsy multipacks. Volunteers and friends of Sustainable Hanover/Longacre’s will be on hand to accept this useful plastic.

Help us keep this resource out of the waste stream.

Plastic Plant Pot Collection

Sustainable Hanover volunteers and friends will be collecting Plastic Plant Pots of all kinds (including trays and flimsy multipacks) on Saturday, July 19 from 9-noon at Longacre’s Nursery in Lebanon, NH. Two more collections are planned for the 3rd Saturday of August and September.

Tap your pots free of dirt and help us keep this usable plastic out of the waste stream. Huge quantities have been collected over the last few years creating more space for other stuff in your garage/shed or barn. Keep it coming!

Final Plastic Plant Pot Collection

This is the final plastic plant pot collection of the year on Saturday, Sept 21, 9-noon, Longacre’s Nursery.

Drop off your pots next to Susan Edwards’ woodpile by Friday of this week or at Longacre’s Nursery on Mechanic St, Lebanon on Saturday morning.  We have sent many pallets of densely packed pots to their ultimate destination (Michigan) where they are remade into garden products.  Thank you for all your plastic pot contributions, every little helps.

Any time you want to help collect, let me know, we love having volunteers.  We actually have fun and it doesn’t take much brain power or special skills!

No need to wash the pots/trays or flimsy multipacks, just tap free of dirt.

Organized by the Sustainable Hanover Committee
