Join our Community

There is currently a waitlist to become a member. As of September 2023, the wait time is 1-2 years.


Garden membership is open to City of Boston residents. You may only have one plot per household, and may not have multiple garden plots in different community gardens.

Gardening is not an easy hobby! You will need to tend to your garden at least once every few weeks.  Our community garden has regulations regarding use and weed growth and members that are not compliant will lose their plot and forfeit their dues paid.

Membership Dues

Base Membership: $68.25 per plot per year

Residents of BHA or those experiencing financial hardship may qualify for a reduced membership with approval from the leadership team.

Community Service Requirements

As an all-volunteer organization, we depend on our members to support our goals each gardening season. All members are required to complete 4 hours of community service annually. A $50 surcharge will be added to your annual dues for not completing your community service requirement. Members must sign in for volunteer shifts for credit.

The Worcester Street Community Garden seeks partnerships with individuals, local businesses, corporations, and foundations who want to play an active role in ensuring our gardens and community thrive. The WSCG does not discriminate based on age, race, ethnic origin, religion, disability, sexual orientation, or gender identity. We welcome visitors and encourage all to become a part of our diverse, vibrant, and growing community.
