The Garden

Garden plots will be allocated consistent with Grow Regina‘s previous practices and its obligations under both its Lease and the Community Garden Policy.  Grow Regina Membership is open to all residents of Regina with membership being confirmed through the rental of a garden plot and/or orchard plot.

Garden plots are allotted on a first come – first serve basis with priority given according to the following order:

  1. Returning gardeners in good standing requesting the same plot or a change.
  2. New gardeners
  3. Returning gardeners requesting larger plots

*Good standing refers to adherence to Grow Regina  Guidelines If a gardener can not manage their garden plot they may be offered a smaller, more manageable plot. If a gardener neglects the responsibilities outlined in the guideline a plot will not be assigned.

*New gardeners will be not be assigned a large 20′ x 20′ plot for their first year. When returning in good standing a larger plot may be assigned the following year.

Plot sizes

  • Large – 20′ x 20′
  • Standard – 10′ x  20′
  • Small – 10′ x 10′
  • Garden Box – 10′ x 3.5′ x 1′

Grandfathered 20′ x  30′ plots belong to the original gardeners. These extra large plots, upon surrender, will no longer be available for assignment because of the demand for community gardens. These plots are not transferable to other family members.

Garden Boxes are a new option at Grow Regina.  Perfect if  you want to enjoy community gardening but do not have the time or experience to manage a larger plot.  There is enough space to plant a salad garden and to enjoy fresh garden veggies through the summer.

The garden numbering system is based on the Saskatchewan Land Titles design. Each 40′ x 40’section is located by the 1-11 and A-J (the letter I is not used to avoid confusion).  Each 10′ x 10′ is represented by a number from 1-16. This numbering system is permanent.
