Meeting Times: Steering Committee will meet once a month or as needed.
Meeting Place: in the garden
At all meetings of the Steering Committee, a simple majority of the Steering Committee must be present in person or by proxy to constitute a quorum for the transaction of business. A majority of the quorum is needed to pass any decision. In the absence of a quorum, a majority of the Steering Committee members present or represented may adjourn the meeting or continue with unofficial business.
New plans or changes to existing plans can only be put into effect and implemented with a vote and approval of the Steering Committee. This includes bylaws, membership, rules, physical space (facilities), and operations. Failure to do so can lead to termination of membership.
For La Casita Verde and our community to flourish, it is absolutely essential that we all follow these rules and regulations. Thank you for your cooperation.
1. We are a community — respect each other, our neighbors, and the neighborhood. We must work together to assure the continued growth of La Casita Verde, the community, and ourselves.
2. Members are responsible for cleaning up after themselves; the space should look as clean, if not cleaner, than how it was found.
12. Only members are allowed to propose additions or renovations to the space. If the proposal is supported by the majority of members then it will be forwarded to the Steering Committee for discussion and a vote.
15. Flowers, herbs, and vegetables from La Casita Verde are for the members to share at harvest time. Do not pick anything unless it is harvest time (determined by Steering Committee). Harvest will be divided equitably between members in good standing.
Enforcement of Rules and Regulations
Note: This applies to both adults and children.
All members are responsible for enforcing the rules and regulations. If you see any individual breaking a rule, you should speak to them and/or notify the Steering Committee. The Steering Committee reserves the right to revoke the membership of any member who repeatedly fails to comply with these rules and regulations.
Members will receive a verbal warning upon their first offense. A written warning will be issued after the second offense. If there is a third offense, the member must give up their membership.
