Waiting Lists For 2013: This year we are re-instituting waiting lists when Community Gardens are filled for the season. If you were unable to get a plot in the Community Garden of your choice, you can ask to be added to the waiting list for that garden. Each garden will have its own waiting list. If you are willing to take a plot in more than one garden, please note that in your message. Requests can be sent to email@example.com or to MCP-ParkPermits@MontgomeryParks.org Please include the Garden Name and Waiting List in the subject line. Please call 240-876-7598 if you wish to make your request by telephone. The Waiting List will only be active for 2013 and at the end of the year the list will be "retired." New waitings lists will begin each year when the gardens are filled for the season.
How the Waiting List Will Work: When you ask to be placed on the waiting list please provide your name, email address and telephone number. Your name will be added to the list in the order that your request is received. If a plot becomes available, the first person on the list will be notified. You will have 48 hours to respond that you want to take the plot. If you don't respond in that time frame, we will go to the next person on the list until the plot is taken. Please be sure to include an email address that you check regularly and your correct telephone number/s.

Montgomery Parks community gardens program offers Montgomery County residents the opportunity to use public space and water to garden an individual plot(s) at low cost. Join over 600 gardeners, who garden plots in one of our 10 locations, located all over Montgomery County. As the program grows and neighbors come together, Montgomery Parks will respond by increasing community garden spaces.
Our community gardeners grow much more than vegetables and flowers. In partnership with Parks, we make positive environmental, economic, and aesthetic impacts on daily lives. Join us and transform strangers into friends and neighborhoods into communities.
