The growing beauty of the garden naturally attracts attention. And the most frequently asked question from our visitors is

How can I join the garden?

Answer: Come to a garden meeting and get voted in as a garden friend.  Our meetings take place in the garden April – October on the first Saturday of the month.

As a Green Thumb garden, the garden has established bylaws, which are specific on how to join the garden.  Once you join the garden as a friend, you can be placed on the waiting list for a plot if you want. Friends on the waiting list are required to volunteer for 5 hours a season keeping the garden open during our open hours and are encouraged to volunteer more. As of October 2013, there is a 2+ year waiting list for garden plots.

A schedule of garden meetings is posted here on this website and on the garden gate.
