The Happy Valley Community Garden is now accepting applications for garden plot reservations. From Feb. 1-14, returning gardeners in good standing are eligible to renew their garden plot; however, a renewal application must be received by Feb. 14. After Feb. 14, remaining plots will be available to gardeners looking to join Happy Valley’s community garden. New applications can be submitted through March 15 or until all plots have been assigned. There are a total of 29 raised bed garden plots in the Happy Valley Community Garden. Application forms and a garden plot map can be found here.

The Community Garden Season opens April 15 and goes through Nov. 15. This is a great place to grow your own fruits, vegetables, herbs, and flowers. It is also a great way to meet other residents with a passion for gardening.  The garden is open to any resident of Happy Valley that is 18 years or older.  Raised bed garden plots are available at no cost, in two sizes (5’X5’ or 5’X10’). Plots will be assigned on a first come, first served basis.

The City of Happy Valley is proud to provide the community with a garden that is all-organic and free from chemicals.  The garden location is behind the Public Works shop that adjoins the southeast border of Happy Valley Park located at 13770 Southeast Ridgecrest Road.

Those who have their own garden space, but who enjoy discussing gardening techniques and learning from fellow gardeners can still be involved in Happy Valley’s gardening community. The Community Garden regularly hosts guest speakers during the spring/summer months, and these meetings are open to the public. A 2018 speaker schedule will be posted later this spring.
