How do I get my name on the waitlist?
Our wait list is several years long. A decision was made in January 2022 to temporarily close the waitlist. It will be reopened when warranted.
How do I know if I am on the waitlist?
If you submitted your name for the waitlist in 2021 or before and would like to know where you are on the list, please email us. Note that it might take us some time to get back to you.
How long is the wait list?
As of January 2022, over 400 people are on the waitlist. We suggest getting in touch with other community gardens in your neighbourhood or starting your own new community garden. Check out the SPEC website for more info on how you can get a garden plot. The SPEC website lists all of the community gardens in Vancouver, provides step by step advice on how to start your own community garden (see Growing Gardens manual) and provides advice on how to share a back yard space.
How do I contact garden board members?
If you would like to contact one of the board members, please send an email addressed to the particular board member to firstname.lastname@example.org.
How do I renew my membership?
Prior to the active growing season, members in good standing will receive an email providing details about membership renewal.
Both membership application and payment have to be received by the due date. It is very important that the membership information you provided us with remains current. If we cannot contact you, we won’t be able to provide with membership renewal information, and you will lose your plot.
