Plot-Rental Fee
The annual individual plot-rental fee is $50 for a 5-foot by 8-foot plot or $90 for a 5-foot by 16-foot plot. The garden fee covers the garden plot with organic top soil medium added, water, and liability insurance. There is also a 1-time plot cleanup deposit of $20.

There are a few scholarships available. Recipients of those scholarships, which cover the annual $50 fee and an annual tool fee of $20, will be asked to donate 4 hours of volunteer time monthly.

Tools
Garden members may bring their own tools or choose to be part of the tool cooperative ($20 fee). If you rent a plot, you are responsible for maintaining your own beds and providing your own plants and seeds. You are also free to harvest your own crop. If you can’t use all of your harvest, the food will be donated to an area food bank.
