Thank you for submitting a community garden plot request.

We assign plots each year February through May, as space is available. If your request is received after the cutoff date for plot assignments, or there are no available plots in your preferred garden, your name will be added to the waitlist for next year. Once you've been assigned a plot, you'll be given the opportunity to renew your plot each year.

If you have any questions, please email us at pkcomgard@portlandoregon.gov or call 503-823-1612.
