Information for Plotholders

Do you love gardening?

So do we! With over 80 individual community plots and the Common Good Garden we grow a lot of beautiful things at TSCG.

Having a plot at Tom Settlemire Community Garden is more than simply having room to grow; it is an opportunity to be a part of this incredible community of gardeners.

You have the opportunity to learn from Master Gardeners, neighbors, and a larger number of volunteers. As part of that community, our plot holders agree to give back volunteer hours too.

Join the garden today – Become a plot holder! Applications open in the winter.

The Tom Settlemire Community Garden is first and foremost a community of people. If you tend your plot well, keep it weeded and harvested, and contribute time to maintenance of common areas, you will make an invaluable contribution to the community that is the heart of our Garden. Garden rules are based on a simple foundation – be a good neighbor. Member gardeners tend their plots responsibly and with organic methods and materials, and volunteer to maintain the fence, pathways, demonstration gardens, common areas and the CGG.

Are you an experienced TSCG gardener?

Consider mentoring a fellow plot holder through our Mentorship program!  We know that the first season at TSCG can be difficult because of the garden’s unique microclimate and the prevalence of pests. The goal is to help new gardeners adapt to gardening at TSCG and build relationships within our garden community. Reach out to garden@btlt.org if you are interested in becoming a TSCG mentor or would like a mentor to help you with your plot!
