BECOMING A NEW GARDENER

SSCG is comprised of a diverse membership from many neighborhoods, ages, backgrounds, employment, abilities and skill level-- learning and growing our own food.  We have a common desire to garden nutrient rich food, herbs and flowers and to do so organically.  If you want to join us, we welcome you into this community.  

Please note, this site is new (2019).  Every year, we'll add new function to this website, and this process of registration will become more and more simple.  Thank you for your patience.  

This is what you need to do to become a new gardener:

  • Contact us.  

  • A few things to note:

    • If you're filling out this form prior to February 28th of the gardening year, you'll be placed on a waitlist and we'll be in touch about the next Orientation.  

Orientation for New Gardeners

for 2020 will be announced here.

    • New gardeners on the waitlist can select their plots on a first-come, first-serve basis.  

    • If you're looking for a mentor, please mention it to the Registrar during your garden tour, and you'll be shown available gardens near experienced gardeners willing to mentor you.  

    • You cannot make online payments on this website (yet!).  When selecting your new plot during your garden tour, you can pay for it then, in person, or you can mail a check after filling out your registration.  

    • New Gardeners can only rent one plot in their first year.

  • Attend the next Orientation. We'll review the Gardeners' Handbook. After orientation, it's time to tour the garden and select your plot.  You can find dates for all of this on our Calendar

  • Once this is done, it's time to fill out the New Registration Form and mail your plot fees (if you haven't already paid them in person) to:
