December 14, 2018

Hello gardeners,

We will begin taking applications for garden plots at Eagle Heights and University Houses Gardens tomorrow, December 15. The 2019 applications will be available on our website, in both English and Chinese. This is the link:
We will also have paper copies available at the Eagle Heights Community Center. The Center will be open tomorrow from 9:45am - 12:30pm. The deadline to RENEW your plot is FEBRUARY 15. After that date, I will start assigning gardens to new applicants.

If you won't be getting a garden next year, this will be the last email you'll get from me. If you've let me know you're not renewing, thank you very much. If you know you won't renew and haven't told me, I'd appreciate your sending me an email now.

I will not be able to renew your plot if you have not either done a workday or paid the no-workday fee.

If you email the application to me, you will still need to send or drop off a check for your plot fees. Your application will not be complete without payment. Please remember also that we can only accept checks, cashier's checks, or money orders - no cash or credit cards. Checks must be made payable to Division of University Housing.

If you want to garden again next year, but don't want to renew the plot you had this year, please indicate that on the application, and give me an idea of locations you would prefer. I will do my best to find you a spot you will like better.

Please let me know if you have ANY questions. We'll still have to get through winter, but at least renewing your garden plot and thinking about the fabulous things you're going to plant next year will remind you that spring will come.

Thanks, everybody.
