Can I use pesticides or weed killer?

We highly encourage organic gardening methods. Plots must be kept free of weeds. Weeds are considered to be “out of control” if they are greater than 6 inches in height, flowering or going to seed. Use cultivation or mulches to control weeds. Individuals are responsible for weed control in their plots, even if the plot does not have anything currently growing.
