Gardening Anyone?

Are you interested in gardening? Do you have a green thumb that you\’d like to perfect this upcoming season? Fortunately, Noyes Park Community Garden Group is seeking residents in Ward 5 to register for plots. Registration starts January 15 and last through the end of the month.

“The Noyes Community Garden has twenty 8’x4’ plots. At least two of these plots will be reserved for public use and planted in conjunction with local youth and school children, and the remaining will be available for individuals or groups within the community. All DC residents who are not already tending a garden plot in a DC Department of Parks and Recreation (DPR) garden are eligible to sign up for a garden plot. There is a $30 yearly fee to use the plots in Noyes Park.

Registration for the 2016 growing season will begin on January 15, 2016. We are doing things a bit differently this year and will have an open registration period between January 15 and January 31. Should the number of registrants exceed the number of available plots, we will use a lottery system to assign plots. If there are still spaces available after January 31, registration will remain open on a first-come, first-served basis. To register for a plot, fill out the online registration form which will become available on our NEW website (http://www.friendsofnoyespark.org/) beginning January 15. I will send out a direct link to the form once it has become available. You may also register by sending your name, street address, phone number, and email address to the Friends of Noyes Park (2718 10th St NE, Washington DC 20018) after January 15. Any registrations received prior to January 15 will be disregarded.

Registrants assigned a plot for the 2016 growing season will be notified and provided additional instructions on how to complete the registration process. Any interested gardeners that do not receive a plot for the 2016 growing season will be added to a waiting list for 2017 and given an opportunity to tend to a plot should one become available this year.”

If you have any questions or comments regarding the garden registration, please contact us at garden@friendsofnoyespark.org (NOTE: new email) or 202-524-0547.

With best wishes for 2016,
