Become a City Gardener!

Become a City Gardener!

This is a step by step guide on how to establish a city of Rochester vacant lot garden in your neighborhood.

Would you like to turn an empty lot into a productive flower or vegetable garden? Are you interested in changing an unused parcel of land from ‘abandoned’ to ‘cared for’? If the answer is yes, we encourage you to step up your involvement and apply for a Garden Permit. There is a growing national movement that involves residents at the local level to create attractive green spaces.  It’s a healthy activity that also improves the health of our communities. In many instances, caring for vacant lots has proven to be the starting point for homeowners to increase the value and security of their collective neighborhoods, to improve the safety of their residents, and to encourage growth and opportunities in their area.
