Plot Program

Interested in gardening but don’t have time or space at home?  For a very small fee to cover hoses, etc., Argonne lets gardeners use a plot for the 2019 growing season.

We have a two-stage process for assigning plots. Returning gardeners can sign up for their old plots again in December; new gardeners can sign up for plots in the spring. If returning gardeners want to add more plots, they can sign up for additional plots during the spring opening. Follow the steps below according to which category you’re in, and check out the FAQ if you have questions.

NEW GARDENERS and ADDITIONAL PLOT REGISTRATION

REGISTRATION FOR NEW GARDENERS IS OPEN!

New gardeners can sign up and established gardeners can request additional plots (up to four total). 

After registration, plot requests will be taken through the spring and summer until all plots are filled. We do have new spaces become available sometimes.

Here’s the steps:

1. Read the FAQ about plots!

2. Check out the Garden Plot Site Map to figure out what area you want to garden in. We try to place everyone in one of their top 3 areas.

3. Fill out a Garden Club 2019 Membership Waiver Form. Gardeners participating in the plot program must be Garden Club members. The membership fee is $10/year.

4. Fill out a FORM_Plot Request March_2019.  The plot fee is $10 each per season and covers hoses, nozzles, and misc. gardening supplies. Maps of plot areas are below.

5. Bring the forms and payment to a Garden Club meeting (or interoffice mail to Louis Emery, Bldg 401 ASD).

Cash or checks are accepted. Please make checks out to Argonne Garden Club.
