Rent a municipal garden plot

Residents of The Hague can rent a garden plot at one of the school gardening complexes from 15 March to 15 November. Registration is now closed.

You can plant your own vegetables, fruit and flowers in a communal garden. All of the plots are 15 square metres.

The municipal garden plots are found in the same location as the educational gardens. Due to the coronavirus the educational gardens are closed until 19 May. Before you head to your garden plot, first read the instructions on the poster by the entrance gate.
