Apply for a Community Gardens Scholarship

All plots are offered on a sliding scale. We offer up to 75% assistance to gardeners based on household size and incomes. Plot fees are for the garden season which runs November 1 - October 31 each year.

The form will take less than five minutes to complete. Applications are typically processed within 5 business days.

There are several ways to submit a scholarship application; online, by email, mail, or over the phone. After your application is submitted, staff will review your request and send you an updated invoice. Please allow up to one week for processing.

If you do not already have a garden plot you must submit a Garden Plot Request Form to be added to the waitlist. Submitting a scholarship form does NOT add you to the waitlist.
