Plot Holes: Space Available in RA Gardens With No Wait

If you’ve wanted to reserve a Reston Association garden plot but there’s never been space, now is the time to put down roots.

Patricia Greenberg, RA’s environment resource supervisor, says that “for the first time” there are open plots available with no waiting list.

“There are nine plots available right now, of different sizes and in different locations in Reston,” Greenberg said. “It’s an incredibly popular program, and [right now] there is only a waiting list for the plots in South Reston, and that’s only two or three people.”

Plots are available to Reston Association members only, and are available at half-price since the growing season is already half over. Discount prices to reserve available plots for the rest of the season are as follows:

  • 119.9 square feet and below: $15
  • 120 to 199.9 square feet: $25
  • 200 to 280.9 square feet: $37.50

Gardeners get right of first refusal for their plots, Greenberg said.

“They can renew the same garden plot rental every November, unless they notify us that they do not want the garden plot,” she said.

Anyone interested in reserving a plot should call 703-437-7658 or email [email protected].
