Renting a Plot

Visit the Community Gardens homepage to learn more about our Community Garden Program and our 14 garden locations.


In order to rent a plot, you must be a resident of Montgomery County. Plots will be limited to one plot per person. Gardeners are able to renew garden permits in the winter of each year.

Gardeners agree to follow the 2024 Community Garden Conditions of Use. Failure to follow the rules will result in loss of the plot and forfeiture of the rental fee.


The 2024 Waitlist is available.

For the 2024 season, Montgomery Parks will only utilize the 2024 waitlist to assign community garden plots to residents. If you made a submission before then, please contact us or submit a new form.

Names are added to the waitlist in the order that submissions are received. If a garden plot becomes available during the gardening season, we will contact the first person on that waitlist by email. You will have 48 hours to respond and confirm your interest. If there is no response, we will contact the next person on the list. If you have questions, email community gardens.
