The Community Gardens program has provided gardening opportunities for the physical and social benefit of the people and neighborhoods of Portland since 1975. There are 50 community gardens located throughout the city, developed and operated by volunteers and PP&R staff, offering a variety of activities.

Sign up for a garden plot by submitting a Garden Plot Request Form. We will assign plots to new gardeners for the 2015 garden season in March and April and continue through June as plots are available. Garden plots are assigned on a first-come, first-served basis. For gardens where there is not a waitlist and plots are available, the plot assignment process typically takes 2 - 3 weeks. If no plots are available in the garden(s) you select, you will be put on a waitlist and notified when one becomes available.
