Garden Plot Lottery

  • Noyes Park 10th and Franklin St. NE Washington, DC (map)

The Noyes Park Community Garden Group seeks residents to register for garden plots in Noyes Park for the 2018 growing season. The Noyes Community Garden has twenty 8’x4’ plots. At least two of these plots will be reserved for public use and planted in conjunction with local youth and school children, and the remaining will be available for individuals or groups within the community. All DC residents who are not already tending a garden plot in a DC Department of Parks and Recreation (DPR) garden are eligible to sign up for a garden plot. There is a $30 yearly fee to use the plots in Noyes Park. 

Registration for the 2018 growing season will begin on January 1, 2018. The lottery entry period is January 1 through January 31. Should the number of registrants exceed the number of available plots, we will use a lottery system to assign plots. If there are still spaces available after January 31, registration will remain open on a first-come, first-served basis. To express interest in a plot, fill out the online registration form. You may also register by sending your name, street address, phone number, and email address to the Friends of Noyes Park (3121 7th St NE, Washington DC 20017) after January 1. Any registrations received prior to January 1 will be disregarded. 

Registrants assigned a plot for the growing season will be notified and provided additional instructions on how to complete the registration process. Any interested gardeners that do not receive a plot for the upcoming growing season will be added to a waiting list for the next season and given an opportunity to tend to a plot should one become available in the current season.
