Community Gardens

The City of San Mateo has two Community Gardens which allow access for residents to plant and grow their own flowers and vegetables for a nominal yearly rental fee per plot.

Plots are available to San Mateo Residents only (proof of residency is required). As of December 2018, the annual rental cost for a plot is 28 cents per square foot to cover the garden expenses. All gardeners must sign an annual licensing agreement, pay their annual fee and maintain their plots year-round

For more information on how to obtain a plot, please contact a board member for the garden location you are interested in, indicated below.
