Gardener Application Form for TRV Community Garden quarter-acre plots
Please complete this application to apply for one quarter-acre plot at the Tijuana River Valley Community Garden. The applications will be reviewed by staff at the Resource Conservation District of Greater San Diego County (RCDGSDC).

Completion of this application does not ensure guarantee of a quarter-acre plot. Applicants will be selected on the basis of their application, specifically on farming background and experience, overall gardening plan, adherence to regular maintenance of the plot, and agreement with the Terms of Use.

Our expectations are:
