Submit a New Gardener Lottery Entry Form

New Gardener Registration for the 2023 season has closed. 

New gardeners at Idylwilde Community Garden will be selected through a randomized lottery. Those on this list will be notified via email when the lottery will take place each year and if they have received a plot. If someone decides not to accept the plot, the next person on the list will be notified. Only one plot per household/residential address and priority will be given to Lexington residents. If you have previously submitted an entry and were not selected, you do not need to submit another as your entry will stay on the list. You may contact us at any time to make sure your Entry is still on the list or notify us if you wish to be removed. Thank you!
