General registration information
Registration for garden plots at Chinquapin Park begins in the fall. Current gardeners are given the opportunity to renew or exchange their plots, then open spaces are made available to new gardeners on a first-come, first-served basis.

Plots may become available during the garden season as gardeners give up their gardens. Plots are also occasionally reassigned if gardeners fail to follow regulations. Applicants can be added to the waiting list at any time during the year.

Registration for new gardeners: Waiting list
The city maintains a waiting list of prospective gardeners. The waiting list is maintained in the order that completed applications are received by the city, with earlier applications having priority.

When plots are available for assignment, the city will offer plots to those on the waiting list in sequential order and plots will be assigned to those who respond within the time period proscribed in the offer. Prospective gardeners who fail to respond in the allotted time or who choose not to rent an available plot will be removed from the waiting list.

The city is not responsible for plot rental invitations that are not delivered due to incorrect or out-of-date contact information, or that are not opened or responded to promptly. Plots will be offered to non-residents only when there are no city residents on the waiting list who wish to obtain a plot permit.

Important dates for 2017 season
• March 1, 2017: Gardening season officially begins. Gardeners may access plots.
