The annual growing season runs from the Opening Workday (late-April to early-May) to the Closing Workday (mid-October). Plots must be completely cleared before the Closing Workday; these plots are tilled for the winter.


The deadline for plot applications is March 15, 2024. Returning gardeners will have priority up to this date; any applications received after the deadline will be processed according to the date of submission and subject to plot availability. Note that applications are not considered finalized until we have received your completed online application, rules & release forms for you and any additional gardeners, and your plot fee. Plot fees must be received by March 22, 2024 to reserve your plot.
