DPR Community Gardens

Growing vegetables in neighborhood garden plots

The Department of Parks and Recreation (DPR) works with the community to establish gardens across the District. DPR currently has over 30 community gardens under its jurisdiction. 

If you are interested in being placed on the waiting list for a DPR community garden plot, please contact the garden organizer listed below or the DPR Community Garden Division at [email protected].

Community Gardens are listed by Ward, and then alphabetically.  The number of plots indicated are the total number of plots at the garden.  Most gardens are full and the plots have been assigned.
