Troy Community Gardens

Use our land to grow your food
Community gardeners use the land to grow their own food, which has a positive impact on their household food security. Community gardens provide recreational outdoor activity as well as a fun and friendly environment for people of all ages, incomes, and cultures to work the land together and share their gardening knowledge and ideas. Gardeners assist in site maintenance and management through volunteer commitments.

Returning Gardeners

All returning gardeners must submit an application each season. Please read the garden rules before submitting your application. Returning gardeners may apply for one additional plot per year up to a total of four plots. You will be contacted prior to Opening Day with your plot number(s). Please DO NOT begin gardening until you receive your plot number(s). Returning gardeners can submit their application in by:

  1. Download the Gardener Application and Fee Chart.
    Paper copies are also available in the red shed at Troy Community Garden. These can then be filled out and placed in the secure drop box located in the Troy Community Garden shed, or sent by mail to Rooted, 517 E Badger Rd, Madison WI 53713
  2. Fill out an application and pay online. If you have missed the registration deadline, even if you are a returning gardener, you will be put on our waiting list.

Email us for more information.

New gardeners at Troy are limited to one plot the first year. It is our mission to serve residents of the Northside. Given space limitations, we may give priority to new gardeners who live on the Northside or closest to the gardens. Gardeners can sign up for the waiting list online. If you are assigned a plot, you will receive an email with your garden plot assignments before Opening Day.
