How Does One Get a Plot in a Community Garden?

A reader has a specific request:

“I’m not sure where else to turn! I moved to the Fort Totten area earlier in the spring and have since discovered what appears to be a community garden near the intersection of 10th and Emerson NE, behind a gas station. I can’t find it on the DC Community Garden website, but would love to get a plot. Do you know of anyone who would have info about it, or other community gardens in the Fort Totten area? There is also an even bigger one near Jarobe Printing at 15 Oglethorpe Street, NW (visible from the metro on the way to Takoma Park) but I can’t find a point of contact for that one, either.”

So if anyone has specific information on those gardens I’m sure it would be greatly appreciated.

But I’m also curious in general how one would go about getting a plot in a community garden throughout the city. Anyone have advice?
