2018 Garden Season

Plots are rented on a geared-to-income basis.  The rental fee ranges from $15 to $40 for a plot of approximately 150-square feet for the season.  Plots may vary slightly in size.  Gardeners are responsible for opening their garden plots up in the spring and putting their plot “to bed” in the fall.  The City of London Community Gardens Guidelines outlines the gardener’s responsibilities. Please read before you request a garden plot.

Raised bed plots are available upon request.  Please contact us for more information.

The fee structure is based on a total combined household annual income of:

Household Annual Income Plot Rental Fee Rototilling Fee
Up to $15,000 $15 $15
$15,001 - $20,000 $25 $25
$20,001 - $25,000 $35 $35
