Update March 19: Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the original March 21st new gardener sign up has been postponed.
As of March 19, all City of Northampton offices, including the Parks & Rec office, are closed until at least April 7. We will post more information on new gardener registration once it is known.
Renewal packets for returning gardeners have been mailed; renewals received after February 14, 2020 will be charged a late fee.
Each plot at the Garden is roughly 20 x 20 feet and first-year gardeners are limited to a single plot. The plot fee is $25, with discounts available for receiving the Garden Newsletter digitally and for maintaining a compost pile within your plot. The Garden furnishes water (there are 12 outlets distributed throughout the garden, with attached hoses), and community tools (spades, shovels, rakes, hoes, etc.). Rock dust and wood chips are also available to gardeners without charge.
