Anyone with a green thumb, but not enough green space, can register for an Iowa City community garden plot to grow flowers and vegetables. The plots are located in four of the city’s park, and in-person registration for them will begin at 7:30 a.m. on Monday, April 1, at the Robert A. Lee Community Recreation Center. Online registration begins the following day. Registration is on a first-come-first-served basis.

Many of the plots may already have been claimed, since people who rented lots last year should have already received notifications from the city about renewing their leases. Everyone registering for a plot will have to sign a lease agreement to maintain it through Oct. 1.

The Parks and Recreation Department is offering gardening spaces for rent at the following locations:

Chadek Green Park, 1920 Friendship Street

• Fifty six (56) 10′ x 20′ plots
• $15.75 rental fee for Iowa City residents
