Community gardens

Registration for new gardeners is currently available. Find all the registration details using the drop-down below. 

The London Community Gardens Program provides access to twenty community gardens for over five hundred gardeners across the City of London.

Community gardens provide space for residents with limited access to green space to grow food and flowers, enjoy nature, be creative, donate, exercise, host events, learn, spend time independently, and socialize and meet new friends. 

The operational season is from May 1 to September 30. During this time, the City provides water, maintenance, waste collection, and other support. Gardeners are expected to follow all guidelines and pass plot inspections.

London Community Gardens Program Guidelines


Registration for returning gardeners closed on Friday, December 2, 2022. Registration for new gardeners opened Monday, January 9, 2023. Gardens either offer ground plots, accessible plots, or a mix of both.

Cost and accessibility

The annual registration fee ranges from $16.16 to $43.30 for a plot that is approximately 200 square feet. Please contact Customer Service at 519-661-5575 to determine if you qualify for a subsidized plot. 

How to register as a new gardener 

  • ​​​​Online: Create a Play Your Way account. Then, login and select “Garden Plots” to find your preferred location and plot. Make sure to select “May 1” as the date to register in the left-hand column.
  • By email or over the phone: Send an email to or call 519-661–5575 with your preferred location. Customer Service will assist you further.
  • In person: Visit the City of London office at Citi Plaza (355 Wellington Street, second floor, Suite 248) between 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday to Friday. 


Community garden waitlists open the same day as registration for new gardeners and close when they hit capacity. To join the waitlist, please register online using your Play Your Way account or call Customer Service at 519-661-5575. 

Residents are welcome to join multiple waitlists but must accept the first plot of those locations to become available. If a resident declines a plot, their name will be automatically removed from all other community garden waitlists. All the community garden waitlists reset at the end of every season (September 30).
