Welcome to the Community Gardens of Tucson! Plot Fee Assistance Application
Thank you for gardening with us! One of our Organizational Values is that Everyone is Welcome and we commit to community gardening that is equitable, inclusive and accessible to all people.
The inputs needed to garden in the desert are expensive: water, compost, tools. We want all of our gardeners to be successful and require fees so that we can continue to sustain our organization.
We'd like to know what community garden fee is affordable to you. We'd like you to honestly evaluate your household expenses and what value a garden has to you to determine your plot fee, payment method and frequency. A Community Gardens of Tucson representative will follow up with you for a final determination.
