All returning gardeners should have received the re-registration email recently. In case you lost it or your dog ate your email, below are important dates regarding registration and requirements for the beginning of the new gardening season! If you need the link for the registration form, please contact the garden via email at

This year, our registration process will have two parts.  First, new and returning gardeners will register for a plot usingthe online registration form.  Returning gardeners must register by April 1 to ensure they keep their plot.  New gardeners will be given the web address when they attend the New Gardener Registration Event on April 13, 2019, at 10:00 a.m. in the Waite Park Community Center.

New and returning gardeners will complete their registration by attending one of the two orientation sessions in the garden.  Gardeners will pay for their plots when they attend an orientation session. All gardeners—new and returning—must attend an orientation session in the garden.  The registration process will be complete once gardeners fill out the online form, attend an in-garden orientation session, and pay for their plots.

Once you’ve registered for your plot, please plan to attend one of the two orientation sessions, which will take place inthe garden.  Below are the dates:

Orientation One

Date: May 5, 2019 (Sunday)

Time: 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.

Orientation Two

Date: May 11, 2019 (Saturday)

Time: 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.

Gardeners who cannot attend orientation on either date must schedule a one-on-one orientation with a garden lead by May 19, 2019.  One-on-one orientations must be completed by June 1, 2019.  Gardeners who have not completed their registration and orientation process by June 1, 2019 will lose their reserved plot and have any payment returned to them.

If you have any questions about the upcoming growing season in the garden, please be sure to send them to

We look forward to seeing you in the garden!
