Thank you for your support in 2017! We had a successful year with all gardens producing well. The Board of Directors has begun planning and working on an overhaul of Bausch Garden (behind the Helena YMCA) and the Janet St. Garden (east of Helena).
Click the tabs above to learn more about HCG, including how you can get your own garden plot in 2018. We also actively update our facebook page, so be sure to check there, also!
Edible forest garden and the community garden supporters and volunteers and their families are invited to the Gardening Party on Saturday, August 19th from 9:00 am-12:00 pm to celebrate and join forces to continue growing the Park. NRCS soil conservationist Darcy Goodson will discuss soil beginning at 9:30. We will seek input for how to compost followed by a major snack break and meet and greet. Then, we will garden and do projects to develop the gardens and prepare for fall planting.
Bring hand tools. We have limited chairs. Bring a blanket or chairs. Please no flip flops. It should be cooler, but be prepared for the sun. Water will be provided.
Garden Managers have announced they are now accepting inquiries and sign ups for 2017 plots.
*Waukesha Garden has returning gardeners, and is currently full.*
As the 2017 gardening season approaches, we are looking to recruit more volunteers to help our gardens grow! We have needs and opportunities for all interest levels.
Please take a moment to look over the Volunteer Needs 2017 flier and consider sharing this info with others who might be interested in getting involved with HCG!
We will be sharing these needs through our email list, and Volunteer Helena.
