The Society evaluates and selects members according to the following criteria:

  • Esquimalt resident. 
  • Reside in an apartment building or renter in a house and does not have access to a yard.
  • Living radius to the garden. 
  • Willingness to volunteer - which includes that the plot owner agrees to share responsibility with other members in the general up-keep and maintenance of the garden and participate in some public events (times are flexible).
