2015 Season - Now Taking Applications

We are taking names for the 2015 growing season.  Use the Contact Us link and submit your name and the city where you live.  You will be added to the application wait list.  Here is how the application process works:

  • All applications are processed on a first-come, first-served basis.
  • The previous year's gardeners in good standing get the opportunity to apply to keep their plots from last year.  They have 3 weeks to respond.
    • These applications were sent on January 11, 2015. 
  • After 3 weeks, an application is emailed to those on the wait list that are Overland Park residents.
    • You should receive an application around February 1, 2015. 
  • After 3 more weeks, an application is emailed to those on the wait list that are non-OP residents but are Johnson County residents.
    • If there are plots still available, you should receive an application around February 22, 2015.

The garden is located at the Oak Park branch library (9500 Blue Jacket St.).
