The City of Milwaukee, along with our partner Milwaukee Urban Gardens, offers seasonal garden permits for residents who would like to garden on a vacant lot next to their house or work with their neighbors to create a community green-space.

Quality of life flourishes for yourself and your neighbors when you:

  • improve your diet by growing fruits & vegetables
  • socialize and build bonds with neighbors while enjoying nature
  • create a community asset that improves the safety and security of your surroundings
  • save money on your grocery bills

To apply for a garden permit, contact Groundwork/Milwaukee Urban Gardens at or (414) 431-0919.
