This registration page is for the 18 GLFB community gardens only.

Questions regarding your household are required by the agencies that fund the Garden Project, and are for statistical purposes only. Starred fields are required and your answers will remain confidential.

Plot fee contributions are spent directly on garden improvements. We are a non-profit organization and we need your help to provide these important services to you.

We look forward to seeing your garden flourish this upcoming season!

Community Garden Plot Registration

Many other gardens, which are part of our network, do not use this registration form. For information on other gardens, please click here or call (517) 853-7809.
Average community garden plot size is 25'x25'. If available, do you want an extra plot?
(Experienced gardeners only please).
Do you garden organically, following organic standards?
To be eligible for a plot you must agree to the community garden guidelines listed below.

1. Plant your garden within 2 weeks of plot assignment. Control weeds, and keep your plot weeded throughout the summer, including the paths bordering your plot. Before you register, please make sure you can spend 2-4 hours each week over the course of the 2017 season to maintain your plot.

2. Do not leave trash or plastic containers and trays at the garden. Keep your plot trash-free throughout the season. At the end of the season, remove all string, stakes, fencing & trash.
3. Do not harvest from anyone else’s plot without their permission in advance. Violation of this agreement will result in loss of your plot and termination of present and future Garden Project services and privileges. Please report any vandalism, theft, or unusual behavior to your site coordinator(s) and/or the Garden Project office.
4. Respect other people's plots. Do not walk in them unless invited.
5. If you are gardening in an organic section, follow the NOP (National Organic Program) Guidelines. No synthetic chemicals (i.e. pesticides, fertilizers, MiracleGro, etc.) may be used. We highly discourage synthetic chemicals in any plot.
6. Dogs are not permitted in garden area unless assisting the disabled.

7. Follow any rules specific to your garden.

8. You risk losing your gardening privileges for the next year if you:

1) Do not return borrowed tools to the Resource Center

2) Abandon your plot without notice

3) Do not clean up your plot by the 10-22-17 deadline

Abandoned plots will be reassigned if left inactive for 2 weeks and we cannot reach you via phone or email for 2 weeks. If you do not clean up your plot at the end of the season, you will be prohibited from gardening with us the following season.

Are you able to volunteer for the GP at this time? What resources/talents/skills do you have to offer the Garden Project community? (A few examples are volunteer time, hauling, grant writing, teaching a workshop, carpentry, etc.) Thank you in advance!
