Portland, OR, 9/24/08, KGW TV

If you’re trying to get a plot in the city’s community gardens — get ready for a long wait. More than 1,000 people are waiting and there are only 1,200 plots available citywide. The only expansion planned is 22 new plots in Southeast Portland. Volunteers say it’s not nearly enough to cope with record demand. The 31 community gardens sprung-up as Portland grew more dense. And there’s little turnover.

In the last year, the waiting list has grown by more than 400-people.
