Request a community garden plot

Service
Submitting a request form adds your name to the waitlist for your selected garden(s). We assign plots each year February to June, as space is available. If there are no available plots in your preferred garden(s), your name will stay on the waitlist for the next year.

***There are no garden locations with guaranteed availability for the 2021 season.***

Review the Community Garden Registration Information

Please read the Community Garden Registration and Plot Information. By requesting a plot you are confirming that you have read this information and understand the expectations.

Select your interest in one or two garden sites

You can be on a maximum of two garden waitlists at a time.

The following gardens have at least a 2-year wait: Blair, Buckman, Clinton, Colonel Summers, Everett, Grant, Ivon, Mt. Tabor, Sabin, Sellwood, and Sewallcrest. Please contact the Community Gardens Office for waitlist details at other locations.

Fill out the Garden Plot Request Form

Please do not submit more than one Garden Plot Request form. If you have a question about or need to make an update to a previously submitted form, please contact our office at pkcomgard@portlandoregon.gov or 503-823-1612. Submitting duplicate requests may inadvertently affect your waitlist seniority.

Read the Community Garden Policies to understand your responsibilities.

Attend a gardener gathering and orientation

Once you are assigned a plot, we offer an orientation at each community garden site. New gardeners are encouraged to attend one of these events or send a friend or family member in their place. Gardeners will have the opportunity to meet fellow community gardeners, garden managers, and program staff. This is also a great time to share resources, ask questions, and create a sense of community within the garden. Gardeners are welcome at any location if they are unable to attend the orientation at their assigned garden.

In the meantime you can like us on Facebook and check out our calendar for volunteer opportunities. You could also get involved with our nonprofit volunteer partner, Friends of Portland Community Gardens, to stay connected with Portland's community gardens in a way that helps to fund more community gardens in Portland.
