Rent a municipal garden plot

Residents of The Hague can rent a garden plot at 1 of the municipality's educational gardening complexes from 15 March to 15 November. There are no more garden plots available for 2023. You can plant your own vegetables, fruit and flowers in a garden plot.

Gardening takes time

All of the plots are 15 square metres. You will need about 4 hours per week to keep the garden maintained. This includes weeding, setting out netting, tying up plants, watering and harvesting.

You can register for a garden in 2024 from 1 to 31 December 2023.
