Since 1978, Eugene’s community gardens have been growing friendships, community involvement and an appreciation of the land. By giving participants the opportunity to cultivate their own gardens, the Community Gardens Program helps people experience a special connection to the earth and their community.
Our garden plots are full for the 2021 season. If more plots open up this Spring, it is possible we will open the lottery again in June 2021. We will provide instructions here on how to request a plot. Otherwise, please check back in January 2022. Thank you!
Sites There are six community gardens throughout Eugene with a total of more than 340 plots.
About the Plots
There are three plot sizes:
Approx. 300 square-feet for $60 per year
Approx. 600 square-feet for $100 per year
Raised bed at Alton Baker for $25 per year
The cost includes access to garden tools and water. Most plots are staked and numbered. Each garden has a site coordinator who can help answer questions, share expertise and assist with problems or concerns that arise.
