Adopt a Plot

Individuals, families and organizations can adopt a raised garden bed (when available) to grow vegetables and fruits for donation to the Metrocrest Services food pantry. Gardeners can take produce from their plot for personal use as well. If a garden bed is not available, volunteering at the garden is recommended until a garden bed is available. All gardeners are required to recommit to their garden plots at the annual meeting at the beginning of each year.

Gardeners must commit to providing the labor and attention required year round to have a successful garden. The Coppell Community Garden provides an orientation, tools, some seed/transplants at a reduced cost, and written booklets to help the volunteer gardeners. Garden plots vary in size from about 70 to 100 sq. ft.

The weekly harvest pick-up occurs every Saturday at 10:00am almost year round. All gardeners are responsible for harvesting their produce each Saturday morning in time for the pick-up. They are also responsible to share in gardening chores required to maintain the gardens.

If you would like to adopt a plot, fill out the Adopt a Plot Agreement.  You will be contacted by the manager of the garden you selected in the form. If a plot is available, you will then be asked to register and complete a background check before you begin gardening. Please plan for this to take about a week. If all spots are full, you will be contacted and added to a wait list.
