Every year, garden plot membership opens in March. People may be waitlisted and considered in upcoming years. Campesinx are free to use their plot through the end of harvest.

For community members looking to grow their own produce or improve their gardening skills, get involved by renting a garden plot in the Las Parcelas garden as a Campesinx.  Our Campesinxs are important ambassadors of and for a community that celebrates Puerto Rican, Afro-Caribbean, and broader Latinx cultures.

Membership Requirements:
