The garden plots at Cavell Park Community Garden are assigned yearly in late spring.
Registration is now closed for 2021.
Members must register and pay for their plots each year. For 2021, the cost to rent a regular raised bed is $60 (or pay what you can).
Registration priority goes to: 1. any returning members who gardened at Cavell last summer and who wish to garden again this year, and 2. any person who was a registered user on a plot last year and who is going to take over as the registered member for that same plot this year.
The remaining available garden plots will be assigned to people on the wait list. Priority may be given to new members who live in the immediate area of Cavell Park and/or returning members from previous years who were in good standing at the time they previously ended their membership with the garden, but who were not members last year.
There are a few table-height beds which can be assigned to garden members who require the accessibility of a garden plot above ground level.
Registration and the Annual General Meeting will be entirely online this year.
Please note that our email address has changed as of Spring 2020. The board does not have access to the old email address, so if you have emailed any address other than email@example.com, we did not receive your message. Please send a new email to us so that we can respond to your message!
Depending on demand, you may get a plot right away or you may be offered one throughout the season.
No payment is due until you are offered a plot. If/when you are assigned a plot, payment will be due at the Annual General Meeting, or may be due right away if you are assigned the plot after the date of the AGM. There are no refunds. Waiting lists expire every year, so if you filled out the previous year's form, you will need to sign up again.
In addition to paying the plot rental fee, each garden member is required to participate in a work team (e.g. compost team, communal beds team) and to participate in communal work days, for a total contribution of about 11 hours throughout the gardening season. See the Bylaws and Code of Conduct for more information.
