Cost: Garden plots are rented on an annual basis, and the cost varies depending on the size of the plot. The two plot sizes are 128 and 192 square feet and the cost is $20 and $30 respectively. A 50% reduction in plot fees is available, but you must complete a separate application form and the reduction in fees must be approved by the Operating Committee of the Association.

Water: Water is available on site. The plot coordinators will work with gardeners to fill rain barrels with water from the City of Hagerstown public water system. Water is available from early April until October each year.

Fencing: The garden will be enclosed with fencing. Initially the garden will have a plastic safety fence around the perimeter. Once the City receives a grant, a permanent metal fence will be installed with a gate system for security.

Expectations of Gardeners: In addition to paying the rental fee for an individual plot, gardeners are joining a community of gardeners. As part of that community, gardeners are expected to observe the Garden Rules governing the garden and be active participants in the community. They will participate in community work days and keep the communal areas of the garden weeded. Gardeners also perform a variety of community garden maintenance tasks as directed by the Operating Committee and Plot Coordinators.
