The Noyes Park Community Garden lottery registration will be open from January 1-31, 2018 for those interested in obtaining a plot for the 2018 growing season. The Noyes Community Garden is located on Franklin Street between 10th and 12th Streets, NE and has twenty 8' by 4' plots available. At least two of these plots will be reserved for public use and planted in conjunction with local youth and school children, while the remaining will be available for individuals or groups within the community for their own private gardening.
All DC residents who are not already tending a garden plot in a DC Department of Parks and Recreation (DPR) garden are eligible to enter the lottery for a garden plot. All registrants who enter the lottery between January 1-31 will be put into a pool and 20 entries will be selected in early February. By February 10th, all lottery registrants will be notified whether they will have a plot or are on the waiting list. The registration fee for a plot in the 2018 growing season is $35, which includes soil amendment for your plot and access to gardening tools and supplies. Thanks to the generosity of our donors, the Friends of Noyes Park is pleased to cover the registration fees for up to two gardeners who are very low income as defined by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development.
