The Banff Greenhouse Gardening Society operates three community greenhouses in the Town of Banff. Plots are in high demand and are issued on a lottery basis.

Registration for the 2022 is now closed

The lottery system is for the approximate 82 available plots. Plot locations include both The Fenlands Banff Recreation Centre and the Banff Recreation Grounds greenhouses.

Plots are available for a 1 year term. The lottery closed on March 27. 

Plots will be awarded by April 6 and the anticipated opening day of the greenhouses is May 7.  Applicants who are not successful in the lottery may receive other membership benefits from Banff Greenhouse Gardening Society.

When you register your application, you may select your preferred location. However, assignment of plots will be based on availability.  Plot locations include two greenhouses at the Banff Recreation Grounds and one at The Fenlands Banff Recreation Centre.

You must have lived in Banff for the past 6 months and be over the age of 18 to register for a plot. For fairness and equity in the lottery system, we ask that you only submit one application per household or group.

 Successful Applicants:

  • Annual Plot Fee: $40 (includes seeds)
  • Damage Deposit: $20 (refunded by November 15 if plot returned in condition received)
