Community Garden Plots

Do you love to garden, 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). Individuals are allowed to reserve one plot per household. 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. An average of 10 plots become available each year. After priority registration is complete, remaining plots will be offered through a lottery.

2022 Priority Registration: February 1 to February 26, 2022
2022 Lottery Registration: March 7 to March 11, 2022
Garden Plot Season: May 2 to October 30, 2022 (weather permitting)
