We hope you’ll join us! If you would like to become a member and reserve a garden plot, please print out the Gardener Agreement and Waiver, sign each, and return one copy with your membership fee to Shandaken Community Gardens, Attn: Membership Coordinator, PO Box 174, Phoenicia NY, 12464-0174. Renewal applications for returning members are being accepted now! New member applications will be accepted on a first come, first serve basis, beginning February 14, 2016, through April 1. Each member will have access to a single plot, and requests for second plots can be indicated on your application. Second plots will be awarded, as available, beginning on April 5.

Please also keep a copy of the Garden Agreement for your reference. If you cannot print those documents, please email or call to request hard copies be mailed to you.  If all the plots have been assigned when we receive your forms, we will hold your check and add you to our waiting list. You will receive an email or phone call confirming the receipt of your forms and fee.

Membership dues are $25, which will give you access to a 10′x 10′ framed plot filled with topsoil/compost for the growing season (May-November). There is an additional one-time $25 donation due with first-year applications. All fees are applied to educational and community outreach projects sponsored by SCG, as well as infrastructure development and maintenance. Plots will be assigned by lottery on April 19, and members will be invited to break ground that day. All plots not assigned by the beginning of May will be awarded on a first come, first serve basis throughout the season.

This is our fourth year of growing, with so many possibilities. Be an SCG trailblazer!
