From their plot registration webpage:
The Noyes Community Garden has twenty 8’x4’ plots. At least two of these plots will be reserved for public use and planted in conjunction with local youth and school children, and the remaining will be available for individuals or groups within the community. All DC residents who are not already tending a garden plot in a DC Department of Parks and Recreation (DPR) garden are eligible to sign up for a garden plot. There is a $30 yearly fee to use the plots in Noyes Park.
Registration for the 2017 growing season will begin on January 15, 2017. The open registration period will be held between January 15 and January 31. Should the number of registrants exceed the number of available plots, we will use a lottery system to assign plots. If there are still spaces available after January 31, registration will remain open on a first-come, first-served basis. To register for a plot, fill out the online registration form which will become available on our website (friendsofnoyespark.org) beginning January 15. You may also register by sending your name, street address, phone number, and email address to the Friends of Noyes Park (2718 10th St NE, Washington DC 20018) after January 15. Any registrations received prior to January 15 will be disregarded.
