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.

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.
