Want to be a Gardener? Contact the committee or the gardeners and we'll follow up with you.

To contact a gardener: Add Template:AttentionGardeners to the page or talk page.

Gardeners monitor, clean up and organize content, and generally make sure everything is running smoothly. Gardeners watch the recent changes across the wiki to make sure the content added (or removed) is coherent, appropriate and properly organized. Through this process they also assist other contributors in using the wiki. To continue the metaphor, these Gardeners grow, nurture and weed on the wiki.

Anyone able to commit to regularly visiting and monitoring the wiki is welcome to become a Gardener. Send us an email!
