Community Garden Plots
The Fairfax County Park Authority (FCPA) provides Fairfax County residents the opportunity to participate in a positive community gardening experience through the Community Garden Plot program. More than 650 garden plots in nine County parks are rented on an annual basis. Most plots are 30'x20'; 18 plots at Grist Mill Park are 10'x20'. Large plots rent for $85 and smaller plots rent for $60.
Read the Garden Plot Rules & Guidelines before signing up for a garden plot so that you fully understand the commitment you will be making. All garden plot renters are obligated to follow established deadlines and keep garden plots in compliance with the rules. Garden plots are to be maintained with planting, harvesting and weeding from May 1 until November 15. Inspections will be conducted to ensure compliance.
If you are already on the waitlist, you will be contacted when a plot becomes available.
If you are a current garden plot renter and would like to be part of a volunteer effort to monitor and remove encroaching vegetation from your community park, contact our office via email or at 703-642-0128. Office hours are from 9:00 AM - 2:00 PM, Monday through Friday.
