  • Make important decisions regarding major maintenance of the garden as new challenges arise
  • Respond to community inquiries about the aesthetics and purpose of the garden through direct communication and development of coordinated awareness and education efforts
  • Identify existing resources that can be used for immediate maintenance needs (e.g. tools, equipment, mulch, services) and potential funding sources for long-term maintenance as needed
