Wayland Community Garden Plot Assignments 2017
For 2017 Garden Plot assignments are pending as of now, a ne map will be created for the upcoming season. Plowing and tilling is weather dependent, and will most likley be performed in May. Plots are approximately 20 feet x 30 feet. If you are confused or unsure of where your plot is located, please call the office. Laying out the tilled plots will be done as soon as they are tilled. Call the office if you have questions.
NOTE: The following list is dated and is adjusted yearly.
February 15, 2017: Application material was mailed to known potential gardeners. A plan showing the status of all plots is posted in the Conservation Office and kept up-to-date thereafter. Applicants are encouraged to consult this plan when selecting plots.
April 3, 2017: Previous years gardener applications are due and their plots will be assigned.Requests for plots not rented by anyone in the previous year (and not previously requested by someone else this year and not in the high demand area) are honored immediately up to a maximum of four plots per person. Any new gardeners will be assigned plots therafter and notifyed via email of plot location.
It is now assumed that all of the previous year's gardeners who wish to return have done so; any plots which have not been reclaimed by last year's gardeners are now made available to other gardeners. Assignment are made on a first-come-first-serve basis. Note: To make this procedure work we will be strictly observing the April 3, 2017 deadline.
April 4, 2017: Gardeners assigned plots in the non-tilled areas may begin work on those plots immediately. Work on plots in the tilled areas will have to wait until tilling has been completed.
May 25, 2017: Plots were tilled and gardeners can now begin using their tilled garden plots.
High-Demand Plot(s) Lottery
When high-demand plots become available, any Wayland Resident can participate when filling out thier application by checking the High Demand Plot Lottery box. Shortly after the application deadline, the lottery winner of the plot will be notifyed. That person may take one of the available plots, and exchange it for thier existing plot if they wish.
