To lease a plot in 2018
Returning lessees: If you've leased a plot in 2017, you'll receive an email in early spring to let you know when signups are for the 2018 season.
New lessees: If you haven't leased a plot before, subscribe to our email bulletin on the right and we'll send you an email in early spring with registration information.
Important note: You must be a Barrington resident in order to lease a plot plus contribute to the care and upkeep of common areas. You can view the 2017 documents to see the Use and Lease Agreement and to learn about the required community work, but keep in mind these will be updated for the 2018 season.

Killdeer nesting areas: Over the past several years, Killdeer have made their nests in our garden. Killdeer spend much of their life on the ground and are easy to overlook. If we see any nests, we'll cordon off the area to give these plovers time to raise their young. For more information about Killdeer, see https://www.allaboutbirds.org/guide/Killdeer/id
