SZCGA RENTAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS 2023
It is your responsibility to read the "SZCGA" Terms and conditions before applying for a plot. Click the button below:
Gardens are inspected throughout the season (May through October).
Notices will be sent to gardeners if the agreed upon Terms and Conditions are not being met. Failing to take full action in the recommended timeline may result in penalties:
- You may be required to take a smaller plot.
- You may not be eligible for renewal next season.
- You may be asked to leave.
In the event that the Registered Gardener does not garden the plot registered in that gardener’s name or a part of that plot and arranges for another party to garden the same, that plot will be considered to be sublet.
To sublet a garden or a portion thereof the Registered Gardener must follow the terms of the subletting policy. Note that subletting permission if granted is for the short term (one year basis)
Failure to comply with the terms of this policy can result in the Registered Gardener losing Gardener in Good Standing Status and the associated privileges. Informal subletting (making your own arrangements) without permission is not acceptable and constitutes non-compliance with policy .
The SZCG Association will assess each request on its own merit and grant permission on a case to case basis. The decision is final.
A registered gardener may request permission to sublet all or a portion of his plot to another person for one year only, subject to the restrictions outlined in the “Policy on Sub-letting Garden Plots”, SZCG registration guidelines and policies.
Print and fill out Subletting Request Form and mail it to : SCGA, Box 33122, Cathedral Post Office, Regina, SK S4T 7X2.
SZCGA communicate with gardeners through website postings and emails.
