Welcome to Helena Community Gardens

Garden With Us

Each of our community gardens provides participants with an individual plot, tools, water, compost, straw, common space and the knowledge and guidance of Garden Managers and the HCG network.
With these resources, and a little bit of persistence and patience gardeners cultivate food for their family, friends, and we encourage donations to Helena Food Share as well!
