Tasks and roles were defined. It was agreed that some tasks should be rotated on a seasonal (garden season not calendar season) basis. It was also agreed that some tasks should be rotated more frequently than others, specifically the Queen Bee role. Roles will be redefined at the end of the summer when the fall growing season begins. Each role has a pool of interested gardeners from which these roles are filled.

This role is currently just the job of being the seed bank, but will evolve into the seed saver as our garden matures and produces seed.
The Steering Committee concept was developed in order to fill the need to have a guiding body that addresses the "nuts and bolts" issues of the garden that need not be brought before the entire CCGC listserv. For example, the steering committee calls for meetings of the general membership to address important issues, watches the bottom line, is open to any interested members, and holds bi-weekly meetings. Current membership includes:
Jay, Leslie, Chris, Mary, Alan, Sammy, Eric, April, Charlie
It was agreed that three separate list-servs will be used
1. Steering Committee
3. General (Newsletter)
The issues of membership, fees, waivers, and so-forth were brought up. It was agreed that this issue should be addressed in more depth at the next Steering Committee meeting.
Planning for an info booth at the site has begun, and will include input from Phil Blank, Eric, and the Steering Committee. This info booth will include a garden log or garden diary, plus general information about the garden, pictures, a sign, etc.
