Rent a municipal garden plot

Residents of The Hague can rent a garden plot at one of the municipality's educational gardening complexes from 15 March to 15 November. There are no more garden plots available for 2021.

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

Gardening takes time

Caring for a garden takes time. The garden plots require about 4 hours of work a week. This includes weeding, setting out netting, tying up plants, watering and harvesting. You are obliged to keep the garden tidy. The municipality will check that this is being done.

Registration for 2022

No more garden plots are available for 2021. You can sign up for a garden in 2022 from 1 December to 31 December 2021.


If you would like to rent a municipal garden plot, the following conditions apply:

  • You are 18 years or older and a resident of The Hague.
  • You are allowed to submit 1 application per home address.
  • You abide by the rules for garden plots (tuinreglement). Read the rules before you sign up.
  • When you go to register you will need a valid form of identification and you need to be able to prove that you live at the address you provided. For example, by showing a letter addressed to you.
