Re: Smoking / Burmuda Grass

As far as smoke free is concerned, it is difficult and probably inappropriate to prevent gardeners from smoking based on the second hand smoke theory. We have no such regulation prohibiting smoking in the Guilderland Community Gardens here in upstate NY.
However, if one were to ban smoking, it should and could be based on the fact of virus related danger alluded to by David. This factor is well known and substantiated.

My suggestion would be if you are to ban smoking based on the danger of the virus, ban it only from the gardens proper. Perhaps make a smokers area separate from the growing area. 

Good luck on a sensitive issue.
