What can I grow in my bed?
Frequently Asked Questions
How can I sign up for a bed?
Contact us to be put on our waitlist. Each spring we hold Information Sessions to answer questions and explain the lottery.
What does a plot lease cost and how long does it last?
The cost is $75 per year for a 4 x 8 bed. Beds are assigned using a lottery system if necessary. All gardeners who rent a plot at the garden also donate hours to the Garden’s general maintenance.
I can't afford $75.
Can I still participate?
Yes you can still participate! A percentage of the plots have been set aside for low-income individuals/families. You can also share a bed to help lower the cost. Contact us for further information.
Is there water onsite to water my garden bed?
Yes, there is! We have water on site. We still practice water conservation techniques just because it’s the right thing to do.
How can I help the Lewes Community Garden without having a bed?
What are approved fertilizer and pest management options?
We would love to have your help whatever your expertise! Be it gardening, fundraising, outreach, or just getting your hands dirty helping others less knowledgeable than you about gardening. We have several community beds maintained by volunteers where all the produce is donated to local food banks. Contact us for more information.
This is an organic community garden. You must use organic products for both fertilizing and deterrence of insects or disease. We have lots of other ideas in our Handbook.
