Plot Rentals

Plot Rental Fees, Volunteer Options and Contact Form
The Inglewood Community Garden conducts our Plot Rental Program twice a year – Autumn and Spring.

The Plot Rental Program is intended to make plots available to “new” gardeners … new, at least, to the ICG.

Complete the Contact Form (tab below) to let us know that you are interested in renting a plot and we will get in touch with you.

Please NOTE: In 2019 the ICG will be setting a deadline for the Spring Plot Rental Program and making any plots not rented by that deadline – which is “yet to be determined” … but will likely be around mid-April – available to existing plot holders on a lottery basis. Any beds not taken up by that lottery will be planted communally.

Plot Rental Fees

  • Annual Plot Rental Fee: $60
  • Financial consideration upon application

Financial consideration upon application
What does that mean?
If the plot rental fee presents a financial consideration which may hinder you from gardening in the Inglewood Community Garden then upon application  your plot rental fee will be adjusted so as to remove that as a hindrance.

How would I apply?
The online Plot Rental Application form contains a checkbox to indicate that you wish to apply.

Who will know if I have applied?
Julia Hinman, Chair of the Inglewood Community Garden, the Plot Rental Administrator, and yourself..
