Garden Applications Open

Garden plots in Eagle Heights garden.

Would you like to have a garden this summer?

If you would like to have your own garden plot at the Eagle Heights or University Houses gardens, we are accepting applications now. Applications can be filled out and submitted on-line, or you may print one from the website and drop it off at the Eagle Heights Community Center, along with your check for the fees. You may also pick up paper applications, in English or in Mandarin, at the Community Center.

This is the link to the applications on our website: https://eagleheightsgardens.org/gardeners/plot-applications/

Both small and large plots are available. Large plots at Eagle Heights are about 20 feet by 25 feet (6 meters by 8 meters), and small plots are about half that size. University Houses’ plots are slightly bigger. Eagle Heights’ plots must be gardened organically, but University Houses has both organic and non-organic sections. For residents of Eagle Heights, Harvey Street, and University Houses, large plots are $32 and small plots are $20.

Please note that we cannot accept cash, credit cards, or starter checks. (Those are checks without account numbers, or printed names and addresses.) However, we do accept personal checks, money orders, and cashier’s checks, from banks, credit unions, the post office, or convenience stores. Be sure to write your name on the money order. If you have a friend write a check for you, please attach a note to the check with your name, so we can connect the check to your application. Your application will not be complete until we receive your payment for the fees.

We have around 150 garden plots available. Opening day for our gardens will be March 21.
