Plot Wait List

Plot Wait List

IMPORTANT NOTICE FOR POTENTIAL MEMBERS

Adelphi Acre Community Garden is currently undergoing a complete rebuild of our raised beds. While we initially hoped to have the rebuild complete before the spring 2022 planting season, our plans have been disrupted by production and shipping delays, supply-chain issues, and COVID-19 restrictions & safety considerations. As a result, we are unable to offer any new memberships for spring 2022. If we are able to complete a significant portion of the rebuild by the end of the summer, we may be able to open the garden to new members in time for the fall 2022 planting season.

If you have already signed up for our wait list, you should have received an email requesting that you confirm your continued interest in AACG membership. If you believe you should have been notified but have not received an email, please check your junk or spam folder. Also, please whitelist plots@adelphiacre.org so you don’t miss any important emails about your position on the waitlist and future membership availability.

HOW IT WORKS

If you are a new-to-us gardener looking for a plot assignment, please read carefully!  Plots are leased on a yearly basis beginning in January and ending in December, when they are either renewed or released. After we register returning gardeners, we open up remaining plots to people on our wait list. Occasionally plots may become available during the year if a member has voluntarily released, or their membership has been revoked for a compliance violation, or the plot has been abandoned.

BEFORE SIGNING UP FOR A SPOT ON THE WAIT-LIST, PLEASE NOTE THE FOLLOWING:

  1. Two [2] hours of Community Service time (per plot per month) must be given to participate in the Adelphi Acre Community Garden Program. These service hours can go towards either the maintenance of common areas in the garden or administrative tasks and DOES NOT include time spent on maintaining your personal plot and the 2’ perimeter around your plot. The community service hours are non-negotiable and part of the gardens License Agreement with the City of Austin.
  1. AACG has a priority placement on the wait list for those within a 1.5 mile radius of the garden. Beyond the radius all requests are addressed on a first come, first serve basis. Please check your address in the map link provided to determine whether you fall inside or outside the priority zone, and be sure to indicate this in the form request.
  1. Be sure to choose the size plot that is best for you. Many new gardeners prefer a smaller plot their first year, and it is always an option to switch plot sizes after the season is closed, if they are available.
  1. Read the rules and regulations, as they will be enforced. Then ask yourself, is Community Gardening for me?
