Sign-up for the 2012 Season!

It's time to sign up for the 2012 planting season!

Forms for membership are below. Please read all the forms carefully. We will not accept an incomplete packet. Dues are $60 per household for the entire growing season. Fee waiver and payment plan options are available.

The deadline for the application packet is March 17th. We will operate on a first come, first serve basis with priority given to previous members. If you don't get a space, you can be put on a waiting list until a plot becomes available.

Stay tuned for the time and place of an informational meeting. Come and meet fellow garden members! We'll have a short presentation about the garden with a Q&A afterwards.

Your completed packet should include the contract, waiver and photo release. A waiver and photo release should be filled out by each person that will be entering the garden. If you have completed a photo release or waiver in the past, we do not need another one.

Contract (one per family)
Waiver (one per person)
Photo Release (one per person)

We can take cash or check payable to Frederick Community Garden Association.

Please email Renee at with any questions.

Happy Planting, Everyone!
