Friends are reminded that as we resume in-person activities, we continue to prioritize safety and inclusiveness for all users of our meeting house, both New Gardeners and visitors.

We are opening the building to small groups according to the capacity limits of each meeting space. Group leaders can contact Sharon (see contact information below) to make reservations.

Please follow the guidance below for use of the meeting house:

  • Stay home if you have any symptoms of illness.
  • Meet outdoors, if feasible, regardless of group size; please bring your own chairs.
  • Reserve meeting room(s) in advance by calling the NGFM office at (336) 292-5487 or emailing office@ngfm.org ; note the capacity of room(s) you will be using and do not exceed maximum occupancy.
  • Optimize ventilation according to the instructions posted by the door of each room.
  • If your group size exceeds the capacity of available indoor space (posted by the door of each room), meet outdoors.
  • Mask and socially distance 6 feet from others, regardless of location or group size.
  • Do not sing or eat together indoors: this is among the least safe activities for unvaccinated people, even if they are masked.
  • Use restrooms one individual or family group at a time.

Thank you for your care and patience.
