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 53 community gardens located throughout the city, developed and operated by volunteers and Portland Parks & Recreation staff, offering a variety of activities.

Portland Community Gardens is committed to the overall Citywide vision that race will have no detrimental effect on people of color, refugee and immigrant communities in accessing our community gardens, or from the benefit of our services. We recognize that achieving racial equity will take time, with dedicated leadership and commitment by managers and staff. We acknowledge, understand and encourage celebration of the differences that surround us. Equity, inclusion and diversity are vital to Portland Parks & Recreation’s ideals and values.

Sign up for a garden plot by submitting a Garden Plot Request Form. We will assign plots to new gardeners for the 2018-2019 garden season in February, March and April and continue until 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. Already have a plot? Click HERE to manage your account online.
