How much does it cost?
It’s free to work on and harvest from community plots. To have your very own plot for one year it’s $30. Some people split a plot with a friend. Tools and some fertilizer are provided, but if you have your own plot, you will want to buy or collect your own seeds and some soil amendments like manure or seaweed.
How do I get on the waitlist for a plot?
Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We will need to know: your full name, your contact info (email address and/or phone number), your student or staff ID number.
Do I have to be a UVic student to get a plot?
You have to be either a current student, or current staff or faculty member. Email us if you’re not sure (email@example.com).
How long will I be on the waitlist?
We’re not sure because that depends on how many people want to stay on for the next year. We can tell you what number you are on the waitlist if you email us that request (firstname.lastname@example.org).
I’m new at gardening. How do I garden?
