Ben Franklin Community Garden - Celebrating 40 years!


2021 Season

When you have received your invitation to garden and have completed and signed the forms in your packet (application and waiver, garden rules, Covid-19 procedures, volunteer choices), you can choose to pay online here. Please remember that returning gardeners will receive applications first. Prospective gardeners will receive notification in April. If you are NOT a returning gardener, and have not already done so, please complete and submit the Ben Franklin Community Garden Interest Form ( to be added to the list. Unsolicited payments for plots cannot be accepted but donations are always appreciated.

Add a monetary donation

In keeping with the intention and meaning of a community garden, and in an effort to defray costs and maximize grant awards, each Gardener and Co-Gardener is required to donate a minimum of five (5) hours toward the operation, maintenance, and promotion of the Garden. In lieu of volunteer hours, a donation to OBCDC’s Garden Fund of $10/hr minimum is expected.
