Community Garden Plots

Do you love gardening but don’t have the space? We can help! The Glen Ellyn Park District’s Community Garden Plots are located within Village Green Park (130 S. Lambert Road, Glen Ellyn). Each household is allowed to rent one plot. The entrance to the area is off Lambert Road, south of Roosevelt Road.

Purchasing a Garden Plot

Individuals who rented a garden plot last year are offered priority registration for the same plot, and most will renew. On average, 10 plots become available each year. After priority registration is complete, the remaining plots will be offered through a lottery.

2024 Priority Registration: February 1 to February 23, 2024
2024 Lottery Registration: March 4 to March 8, 2024
Garden Plot Season: May 1 to October 31, 2024 (weather permitting)
