The Fenway Victory Gardens are a community garden, which means: community comes first! The Victory Gardens thrive because our members are not only committed to tending their own gardens, but to cultivating the growing community of which we are all a part.

FGS welcome gardeners of all backgrounds, ages and abilities. Our diversity is our strength! We seek members enthusiastic about both gardening and community, excited about working together to better the park, sharing knowledge and experience, and creating a supportive, nurturing environment for all of our members.

There are Many Ways to Grow!


Volunteer for one of our Community Participation Days! Bring a friend! Meet other gardeners, have coffee and doughnuts, and work together on turning compost, trimming back invasives in common areas, and helping us maintain our park! A great way to get to know the Fenway Victory Gardens!

Join us for Programming.

Come to one of our weekly workshops in the Teaching Garden. Free (unless otherwise noted), and open to the public, this is a great way to join our community, learn new methods and skills, and share your own knowledge of gardening. The 2012 schedule will be available in March.

How about a Pot Luck?

Join us for one of our cook-outs! Free and open to the public, with live music, entertainment, and games, these family-friendly events bring our wider community together! From our Independence Day BBQ to Fensfest, from our Spring Open Garden Tours to our Festival of Lanterns these events are fun for the whole community!

Curious or New to Gardening?

If you are a novice gardener, or just donít have time for a full-scale garden come join us in the Teaching Garden for programs on all aspects of gardening (schedule TBA), mentoring, or your own raised bed garden!

Apply for a Plot!

If you would like to grow with us, we'd love to meet you! We offer several New Applicant Information Sessions year-round where interested residents of Boston can come meet our gardeners, tour the gardens and discuss the stewardship responsibilities of growing in our historic park (check the events and homepage, both regularly updated, for dates).

Although it seems a little old-fashioned, we feel that meeting in person is important, and that working together as a community is vital, so applications are no longer available online. But please get in touch for dates and times of Information Sessions and Community Participation Days where you can meet our members and get an application for membership yourself!

Renewing Your Membership

Gardening privileges and plot assignments are not transferable and must be renewed each year. A membership renewal application will be sent to you early in the year. If it is returned as “address unknown” or “no forwarding address,” an attempt will be made to reach you by email or telephone. If unsuccessful, and we have no further information in writing from you by the renewal deadline of March 15th, the plot will be reassigned. Once the plot is reassigned, you must reapply to FGS for a new plot, and will be placed on the wait list in the order your application is received.
