City Residents Renewals

Plot renewals available January 2, 2024 through March 15, 2024Gardeners will not be able to change or reserve new plots until open registration for remaining garden plots begins on April 1, 2024. 

Non-Residents Renewals

Non-Residents may renew the 1 year plot(s) that you had during the 2023 season beginning February 15, 2024 – March 15, 2024.  

Where can I renew my plot?

All gardeners wishing to renew their 2023 garden plot may do so by calling 330-963-8722 or by visiting the Senior Center at 10260 Ravenna Road, Twinsburg, Ohio 44087.

What is the cost for a Community Garden Plot?

  • Renewal 1 year plot: City Resident    $25.00 per plot           
  • Renewal 1 year plot: Non Resident   $55.00 per plot

**Attention 3 year plot owners: We will be working towards making small re-alignment changes to our 3 year garden plots following the 2025 planting season. With this project we want to make sure that our gardeners are prepared in advance. 

What do I need to do now? 

  • If your plot expired in 2023, you may renew your plot, however, you will only be renewing for 2 years at a discounted cost of $40.00. You will also receive the first access to reserve this plot for the 2026 season and will not lose your plot after the 2025 season, unless you choose not to renew at that time.
  • If your plot expires in 2024, you may renew your plot for a period of 1 year at the end of the 2024 season for a cost of $20.00. You will receive the first access to reserve your plot for the 2026 season and will not lose your plot after the 2025 season unless you choose not to renew at that time. 
  • At the beginning of the 2025 season we will contact all gardeners in the 3 year plot area with instructions on how to complete that season.
  • If you aren’t sure when your plot expires, feel free to call our office and we can help you. 

Why are we doing this? 

Over the years we have found that there is no longer a clear distinction between the plots. Access for our maintenance crews has become limited between plots and new gardeners are experiencing frustration over where their plot ends and another begins. In partnership with our service department we will make minor adjustments to re-set these plots and give clear definitions of space. It is not our goal to purposefully disrupt gardening or planting routines but to work towards a better experience for all gardeners, that is why we are giving you advance notice so that you can plant accordingly in the 2024 and 2025 season.
