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).
