We do maintain a small waiting list in the event a plot turns over. To be added to our waiting list, please submit an application here. Also, please check back around September 1, when we’ll open applications for our 2020 season.
We assign plots on a first come, first served basis with priority given to Suwanee residents, property owners, and tax payers. We fill our 76 plots each year, so please apply early! After applying, we will mail you an invoice that will be due approximately 30 days later.
For general questions about Harvest Farm, please contact Managing Board Chair Kristen Nielsen at 404-791-0894 or Kristen.H.Nielsen@gmail.com
Harvest Farm, Georgia’s largest organic community garden, is located in the City of Suwanee’s White Street Park. We offer 76 plots that can be rented on an annual basis to grow veggies, fruits, flowers, and herbs. We’d like to welcome you and thank you for your interest in the garden! We look forward to growing with you.
Plots are available in three different sizes and the annual cost varies depending on the size of the plot. City of Suwanee residents/taxpayers receive a 25% discount on the below fees. Annual fees include use of a raised bed, utilities, basic community tools, social and educational events, and, when available, compost. Gardeners will incur personal expenses for seeds, plants, amendments, stakes, trellises, etc.
Small plots (approximately 5’x 5′) – $50 per year
Medium plots (approximately 5’x 9′) – $75 per year
Large plots (approximately 5’x 12′) – $100 per year
Plots are assigned on a first-come first-serve basis with priority given to City residents/property owners/taxpayers. There will be an annual $15 registration fee in addition to the plot cost.
Since the success of the garden depends upon the support of its gardeners, each plot member must contribute 12 hours of volunteer service a year for cleaning and general upkeep.
