Garden Plot Grant Information
The Garden Plot Grant is made available by the Parks and Recreation Department and is directed towards individuals and families who are in a lower economic bracket and could find it challenging to otherwise secure funds for garden plot rental fees. A total of eight plots are reserved for the Garden Plot Grant Program; two at the Jefferson garden and six at the Walker Park garden. If these plots are not granted on Spring Registration Day, they will be leased according to the garden’s Plot Assignment Priority.
Simple grant applications will be available on Spring Registration Day only. Spring Registration will be held on March 2, 2013 at the Senior Activity and Wellness Center. The Center is located at 945 S. College Avenue in Fayetteville. The applications will be reviewed and determined on that date. The grant will provide a 25 square foot plot for an individual or a 50 square foot plot for a family.

- You are the only member of a household and your income is less than $12,250 per year.
- You live in a household with two or more family members residing at this address and the combined income
is less than $15,750 per year.
