Robbinsdale has instituted a community garden and accepts applications for plots through early March. There is a $25 fee with the application and you cannot be guaranteed the same spot every year. Anyone can apply and preference will be given to Robbinsdale residents. The plots can be used to grow anything and preference will be granted to food-growing. The last preference will be to those who do not have other access to land. There are scholarships for people who cannot afford the fee. There are 20 plots available in Sanborn Park.
