Terms of Sale:

This is an application, not a registration. Unless you are a returning gardener applying for the same plot you gardened last year, this application does not guarantee you a garden plot. We typically begin assigning plots to new gardeners after March 15th on a first come first serve basis and by availability at your preferred site/s.

If we are unable to confirm you for a plot, your application fee will be refunded.

  • Please enter as xxx-xxx-xxxx
  • Optional secondary email (i.e. for a spouse or partner sharing the plot)
  • Returning Gardeners: Did you have a plot last year?
  • If yes, do you want the same plot as last year?
  • Perennial (no-plow) Community Garden plots: A limited number exist at Buhr Park, Clague, County Farm, Greenview, Hillside, Lakewood, and Wines and can be rented by returning Project Grow gardeners.

    Would you like to be put on the waiting list for a perennial garden?
    As a Project Grow gardener, I agree to:

    • Abide by the Project Grow Gardening Guidelines and Member Handbook, particularly as they apply to the use of organic gardening methods and the non-use of hazardous chemicals and soil amendments while gardening with Project Grow. Specifics are found here under the 'Community Gardens' section of Project Grow's website.
    • Take steps to maintain and improve the soil in my plot.
    • Keep my plot and the pathways adjacent to it well maintained and free of weeds.
    • Notify my site coordinator or the Project Grow office immediately if I cannot maintain my plot for any reason during the rental period. (Failure to notify may result in forfeiture of the right to garden with Project Grow in the future.)
    • Begin gardening in my Community Garden only after plots have been officially assigned and staked out in the spring and opening day announced.
    • Clear my community garden plot of all non-organic materials (fencing, large rocks, string, wire, stakes, etc.) and shred or remove all large or woody plant debris, no later than the end of the day on the annual closing date, the 3rd Saturday of October. I understand that if my Community Garden plot is left in a condition unsuitable for plowing, or if a perennial or Discovery plot is left in a condition that does not comply with policy, I may forfeit the right to garden with Project Grow in the future.
    • Observe the specific guidelines for my garden site (received with the plot rental confirmation).
    • Accept that Project Grow assumes no liability for persons or property in the gardens.

  • Failure to garden in accordance with this Gardening Agreement may result in immediate expulsion from the garden or forfeiture of the right to garden with Project Grow in the future.

    REFUNDS: Plot registration fees minus a $5 processing fee will be refunded for cancellations prior to March 15th. No refunds will be issued for cancellations after March 15th.

    ABANDONED PLOTS: Plots that have not been worked by June 1st or are overgrown with weeds over 18" or weeds going to seed will be reassigned or reclaimed by Project Grow.

    PERENNIAL PLOTS: A limited number of perennial plots are available for year-round gardening. These gardens require more attention and care than annual plots, so only gardeners who have gardened at least one year with Project Grow, and who have demonstrated respect for all policies may apply for a perennial plot.

    Project Grow does not discriminate on the basis of race, color , religion, national origin, sex, sexual orientation, age, disability, or any other status protected by law or regulation.
