Garden Plot Lottery Complete...73 Lucky New Gardeners

Northside Community Garden tool shed

In 2010 Garden City Harvest had a handful of gardeners waiting to get a garden plot after Opening Day.  For the most part, we were able to meet everyone’s needs.  This year an astonishing number of new gardeners applied for community garden plots.  We had 73 available plots and over 152 hopeful applicants!  The Northside Community Garden and the ASUM Community Garden drew in the largest number of applicants.

For returning gardeners and our 73 new lucky lottery winners, Opening Day is this Saturday, April 14, from 10-2 pm.  Check out last week’s post for more information on Opening Day.

For those on the waiting list, Garden City Harvest offers other opportunities to participate in growing your own food through our Volunteer for Veggies Program.  It’s a great way to get your hands dirty and learn from our expert farmers. For Orchard Gardens, call Sarah Bortis at 406.721.2504.  For River Road, call Greg at 406.240.3848.
