2020 Membership Renewal
Renewing your membership in the Gardens is as easy as 1-2-3! Follow the steps below, and keep in mind that your registration form and payment must both be received by March 1, 2020 in order to ensure your plot in the Gardens for the upcoming season. Thanks!
1. Read the Membership and Garden Use Guidelines. These have been updated for the 2020 season, so make sure you familiarize yourself with them.
2. Complete and submit the Member Renewal. Here are two things to keep in mind when completing the form:
There is only one Member per household, but you may share your plot with up to two other persons who also live in Charlestown. So, if you share your plot with anyone else--whether it's someone else in your household or someone who lives elsewhere in Charlestown--please provide the names and email addresses of those persons on your renewal form, and they will receive an email with a link to complete a separate registration form specifically for Plot Sharers. The Member will be responsible for paying the annual fee, be the primary point of contact for the plot, and have the ultimate responsibility for making sure the Garden Use Guidelines are followed, but both Members and Plot Sharers will receive communications from the Gardens during the upcoming season.
If, for any reason, you want switch plots this coming season, please indicate that on the form as well. We cannot predict at this point how many plots will open up or which ones will be available, but once we do know, we'll get in touch with you, and let you know what's available before assigning plots to new Members.
3. Pay the annual fee.
If you're renewing your membership only, the fee is $65.
If you're reserving a greenhouse spot for the months of April and May, the additional fee is $50.
And, understanding that membership fees cover only a portion of the Gardens' standard operating expenses, you may also make an additional donation to the Gardens while you're renewing membership.
You may pay by check, to be sent to PO Box 290044, Charlestown, MA 02129. Or you can pay by PayPal or credit card, following the instructions below.
One at a time, select from the drop-down list below the items you want to pay by PayPal or credit card. Pressing "add to cart" will open your shopping cart in a separate window. If you are only renewing membership, you can proceed directly to checkout using either PayPal or a credit card. If you also want to reserve greenhouse space and/or add a donation, click on "continue shopping" in the upper right hand corner of the PayPal screen, and this will return you to the drop down list where you can select additional items. Please note that, in order to read the complete description of each item in your cart, you need to click on the "more" link below the words "GfC Renewal 2020."
