One of the requirements was that the Board stay in touch with members and let them know the rules. So, as soon as the letter went out to everyone confirming access on May 17th, we started drafting the required signs, then printing, then laminating, then posting them. In the meantime, RIOC's community liaison office, Terrence McCauley also made us an official sign. So by Memorial Day, we had even more reading to post for you all.
Take a moment to read carefully. We appreciate all the support and care gardeners are showing for each other by wearing masks and gloves and by maintaining physical distance. For some of us extraverted, excited types, it is a constant effort. For others, it is much easier to stay quiet and solitary. As we move ahead, please be patient with everyone.
We are all in this together as a community of volunteers learning new ways to connect. We can take care of others (remain 6 feet apart, wear mask/gloves, disinfect shared surfaces) and still continue to share our love of all things gardening: vegetables, flowers, native plants, miniature evergreens, birds, pollinators, ecology, composting, blue skies, green trees, comfortable benches, and all the space and health that nature brings us at RIGC.
