You found your way to the Forest Grove Community Gardens. The gardens provide an open, fertile space where people can rent 250 sq. ft. plots at its Community Garden location to grow food, enjoy the outdoors, and commune with friends and neighbors to encourage a cooperative community spirit while lowering their grocery bills!
The 2023 season of the Community Garden will be here before you know it!
Check back periodically as we change our look, and add new features. We’ll be gathering new information, images and community resources about how you can be involved at the Forest Grove Community Garden. If there is something you’d like to see, we welcome your suggestions.
Don’t miss your chance to have a plot of this green earth to till and grow organic veggies for your table, by leasing a plot in the FG Community garden.
Coming Soon! 2023 Seed Swap in cooperation with the Dairy Creek Food Web.
Spring Itch ! Wet and muddy at the garden here in April, but I got my onions in easily because I prepared the bed back in October.
What are the hours of water access at the Garden? Please only notify me of replies to this question.
Hi Sean, the timer is set for 5:00 am to 10 or 11 pm I believe.
Unable to find a better site for contact info, I want to inform the theft of my new hose. I previously had used hoses that were available for use, but they proved to be very poor.
This is only my second year. I also want to express my dismay at not being able to compost at the garden. Weeds & refuse are so plentiful, that it would turn the plot into a compost pile with no room to grow or harvest. I donot own a truck or have the physical strength it would take to haul. Apparently, this gardening is not for someone like me.
We had a discussion regarding the lack of composting area. People really abused it in past years so we have to figure out away that doesn’t let that happen. Please let me know when you might want to move some out and maybe we can work together to get yours and ours moved.
When do we get water? Today is May 2
The water is on!
Hello gardeners! As we get ready for the 2014 season I just wanted to remind everyone not to park near the substation gate or in front of the main garden gate. The vehicles going into the substation are often large and need lots of clearance. We sometimes have dump trucks or other large vehicles going in the main garden gate, so we need to keep that clear also.
Hola jardineros! Mientras nos preparamos para la temporada 2014 sólo quería recordaros de no estacionarse cerca de la puerta de la subestación o delante de la puerta principal del jardín. Los vehículos de la subestación a menudo son grandes y necesitan mucho espacio. A veces tenemos camiones de volteo u otros vehículos grandes en la puerta principal del jardin así que tenemos que mantener ese espacio vacio también.
I am moving to the area this June and am interested in having a garden plot. I have lived in Hood River, OR and been part of a community garden here for the last 4 years. I am a new gardener and am throroughly enjoying it. Please contact me regarding open plots and the process needed to get started.
This is all so cool. I’m psyched to get started planting things like onions, beets and peas. Maybe even potatoes! Thanks for having all that compost available for all of us to use – did I hear 4 wheel-barrows per gardener? most x. Thanks, Greg
Hi Greg, it’s 4 barrows per plot.
We currently have 14 plots available that were not rented last year. I have requested all our returning gardeners to get back to me by April 1st on whether or not they will be keeping their plots this year. On April 1st, if all of the 14 currently available plots are rented, I will open up those plots that have not been reserved by the previous year’s renter. My contact information is on the rental agreement in the panel to the right of this post. Feel free to call or email me if you would like more information.

The 2014 Plot Rental Agreement will be up soon! You can find a fill-in PDF file in the “Documents” menu (blue boxes on the right). Get ’em while they’re hot!
