Welcome to the 2017 Community Gardens season! The Wilmette Park District offers community garden plots in two locations:

All plots are 10 feet by 20 feet. They are available to Wilmette residents and non-residents. Contracts run March 1 to December 31. There is a fee per plot. The fee for a Wilmette resident is $36. The non-resident fee is $59.

Returning gardeners have first priority to renew their contracts, so each year a limited number of plots are available. If plots are not available, a gardener can be put on the waitlist. The waitlist is handled chronologically. Gardeners will be contacted by phone if an opening becomes available.

Gardeners are responsible for the maintenance of their garden plot. This includes soil preparation and any changes to the soil. Gardening tools are not provided. Water is supplied. Click here to download the 2017 Garden Rules.

Gardens will be checked periodically for maintenance. If a garden appears to need attention, gardeners will be notified by phone and mail.
