Welcome to the Vassar College Community Gardens

The VC Community Gardens are 120 plots located on the Vassar Farm and Ecological Preserve in Poughkeepsie, New York.   Each plot is 20′ x 20′.  Gardeners lease their plot each year and may renew annually (currently the price is $40/year).  If plots are available and there is no waiting list, gardeners may lease an additional plot.

The gardens are open to gardeners from dawn to dusk. Most plots receive full sun.  Water is provided.  Gardeners are required to garden organically and to work at one community work event each season.

Happy Gardening!
