Community Gardens & COVID-19

Registration for the 2021 season is open! Scholarships available.

Covid-19 Community Garden protocols,  implemented until further notice:

  • Don’t come to the gardens if you’re feeling sick, or suspect you may have been exposed to the virus. 
  • Please only work in your own garden plot, and respect the other spaces – don’t touch other plots. 
  • Please maintain all recommended actions by the CDC and local health officials to limit exposure, including social distancing. If the gardens are too crowded to maintain social distance at your plot and the community spaces, please come back another time
  • Gardens are closed to public visitors for the time being.

Registration is LIVE for 2021! Click here to complete our registration form. Your registration is not considered complete until you’ve submitted both the form AND payment for your garden plot.

Plots at all gardens are $30 each. If $30 is beyond your budget, scholarships are available; contact us and we’ll gladly work with you. You are welcome to issue payment for your plot in the following ways:

  • Online at paypal.me/LEAPVA
  • Mail a check (made payable to LEAP) to PO Box 3249, Roanoke VA 24015 The 4 Best Online Pharmacies of 2020 in Roanoke VA
  • Drop off cash or check at the West End Farmers Market, 3:00-6:00pm, at 1210 Patterson Avenue SW. Connie, the market manager, will accept your payment.

LEAP is offering garden plots at the same 4 gardens in Roanoke City that were available last year (see below). *The Mountain View and Morningside Community Gardens are fully booked. Please choose another location* You will be asked in the registration to list your preferred garden. Plots will be assigned in the order for which they were registered. Please note that space is limited at the gardens. Your first choice may not be available, depending on demand. If this is the case, you will have the opportunity to choose another location. LEAP can issue a refund if you do not want to move to another garden from your preferred location.

We’ve left an open space in the registration for comments. If you have any feedback or comments, or have a special circumstance, please let us know in the comments section of your registration. 

LEAP is excited about entering our second year overseeing the Community Gardens. Please don’t hesitate to reach out with questions or thoughts to gardens@leapforlocalfood.org or 540-632-1360.
