Sign up for a garden plot by submitting a Garden Plot Request Form. We will begin assigning plots to new gardeners in February 2013. Garden plots are assigned on a first come, first served basis. If no plots are available in the garden(s) you select, you will be put on a waitlist and notified when one becomes available.
1) Select your interest in one or two garden sites.
2) Choose a plot size.
2012 Annual Garden Plot Costs
$10 - starter plot (approx 5x10 sq ft)
$21 - single plot (approx 10x10 sq ft)
$43 - standard plot (approx 10x20 sq ft)
$85 - double plot (approx 20x20 sq ft)
$20 - ADA accessible raised bed (approx 4x8 sq ft)
A starter or single-sized plot is recommended for beginning gardeners and/or families of 1-2 people. Standard-sized plots are good for families of 2-3 people, and double-sized plots are more appropriate for large families or groups and experienced gardeners.
A resident is anyone who occupies a permanent residence inside the city limits of Portland, which includes the Portland Public, Parkrose, and David Douglas School Districts. Anyone else is considered a non-resident and will be assessed a non-resident fee.
Scholarships are provided to individuals or families who need assistance.
We will contact you via phone or email when a plot is available.
Process of receiving a plot:
- Confirm your interest.
- We will assign a plot to you, and you must agree to actively garden and abide by the Community Gardens Policies & Procedures.
- We will send you an invoice, and you will be asked to pay for your garden plot.
