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.
The 2022 community garden lottery is closed. Given the limited number of plots available, all plot assignments will be decided by lottery. You will be notified by March 15 if you have been assigned a plot for the 2022 season.
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.
