FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

HOW DO I GET A PLOT AT THE GARDEN?

If you would like to join us please contact us for more information or to be added to our waitlist.

ARE THERE RULES TO GARDEN HERE?

Yes! In general all gardeners are expected to maintain their plot, keep their area clear of weeds and invasive plants, and contribute a minimum of 8 hours of community service (per plot) in order to stay at the garden.

The most important rule in our garden is that we must use all organic (OMRI) products. We lease the land from the "21 acres" facility which is a federally certified organic farm.

WHAT IS THE COST?

Rent for a plot is 125 dollars for the year for a 20x20 plot. We also ask for a 100 dollar deposit for all gardeners in the event that the garden is not cleaned out when you leave us. If you leave the garden in a good condition when you leave we will return the deposit.

HOW DO I MEET THE CULTIVATION DEADLINES?

In order to continue to garden with us your plot must be ready for planting by April 15th. This means the beds have little to no weeds and you are prepping the area for plants.

 

By June 1st you need to be actively working your plot, planting the majority with edible produce.

CAN WE COME VISIT THE GARDEN?

You may come visit us as long as you keep on the common pathways and avoid picking anything from anyone's garden on your visit. We are located off 168th ST behind the Woodinville Alliance Church down the gravel road past the parking lot, turning off to the left into the field (down another gravel road) before you reach the house.

CAN I BRING A GUEST TO THE GARDEN?

Yes. We are happy to have friends and family visit however they must be with you at all times. This includes children.  Please keep an eye on visitors and children and remind them that everyone is growing food for their families and to not pick anything without permission from the grower.

WHAT AM  I NOT ALLOWED TO GROW?

The majority of your plot must be edible crops. We do not allow growing of marijuana or invasive species (morning glory, bamboo, kudzu, etc.). Any plant listed on the king county noxious weed list is prohibited.  

We ask that gardeners who wish to grow raspberries or other plants that tend to spread keep them well contained in their garden and are sure to pull any "runners" from paths and plots.
