Applying for a Plot


You must be an Orange resident to lease a garden plot (proof of residency is required). In addition to a one-time, refundable $100 deposit per plot, there is an annual lease fee of $75 per plot. The site has access paths, water service, fencing, and on-street parking. Annual lease renewals occur in December in preparation for the gardening year, which begins in January.

Join the Wait-List



Orange residents interested in becoming gardeners can add to the waitlist. As vacant plots become available, we will contact potential gardeners via email, in the order in which they were added to the list.
