Community Garden Program

Picture of a Gardener

The City of Redlands Community Gardens is a fulfilling, inexpensive way to grow organic fruits and vegetables and provides a relaxing place to socialize with other residents who enjoy similar activities.

The city operates three community gardens with a total of 85 rentable plots which are managed by the Redlands Recreation Division. Our community gardens are governed by our Conditions of use including a Waiver and Release of Liability agreement. To be eligible for a garden plot you must be a resident of Redlands. Only one plot is allowed per family/household. Plots are non-transferable.
