ISU Community Garden Application Available

The ISU Community Garden has plots available for the 2022 gardening season.

The ISU Community Garden opened in 2008 and has since grown to 165 plots for community members to use free of charge. Each gardener has access to communal tools and water, in return gardeners agree to: tend to their plots and paths, plant only annuals, and refrain from using pesticides, herbicides, and fungicides.

Additionally, gardeners are required to commit 4 hours of service a month to the garden and donate 10% of their annual yield. For more information on our policies, please go to the ISU Community Garden Policy Guide at

All prospective gardeners are required to fill out a garden application for the upcoming season, including returning gardeners. Once you fill out an application, we will contact you with availability of plots and set up an orientation. If our plot availability is full, we will put you on a waiting list. Plot assignment is on a first-come, first-served basis.
