Community gardens are places where people grow their own food and flowers, spend time in nature, be creative, exercise, and socialize. The London Community Gardens Program offers access to twenty-one community gardens, providing space for over five hundred gardeners.

2023 Community Gardens Annual Report


Registration for returning gardeners closed on January 31, 2024. Registration for new gardeners opens on Friday March 1, 2024. Gardens either offer ground plots, accessible plots, or a mix of both.

Cost and accessibility

The annual registration fee ranges from $16.50 to $44.20 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 

  1. Online: Create a Play Your Way account. Then, login and select “Garden Plots” under the facilities list to find your preferred location and plot. Make sure to select “May 1” as the date to register in the left-hand column.
  2. 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.
  3. In person: Visit one of the City of London registration desks during regular business hours, available on our webpage here.  


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).
