New Community Garden at Montana Rail Link Park this Fall!

Have you heard? We’re building a new community garden!

Garden City Harvest has been working alongside the City with the planning and design of a community garden at the new Montana Rail Link Park, and we will be installing the garden this fall. This will be our tenth community garden and we are excited to be able to serve our Southgate Triangle and Franklin to Fort neighbors, Missoula neighborhoods which are severely lacking access to green space and parks.

Update 10/1/2018

Estimated community garden opening: Spring 2019

Garden Progress: Underground water lines and a perimeter fence have been installed. Thanks to many incredible volunteers, all of the garden beds are built, filled, and ready to be planted next spring! We have also layed the groundwork for all the pathways and ADA accessability. Feel free to check it out from the road or sidewalk, but the park and garden will not be open for public visiting until next spring.

Tool shed and communal gathering space to come early 2019.

We are also currently sourcing material donations for the construction of a tool shed and other communal amenities. Contact patrick@gardencityharvest.org, 493-9807, for a list of materials needed and if you or your company are interested in giving a material donation.  We also always appreciate garden tool donations. (Donated tools must be in good working order.)

If you're interested in gardening with us at this site, we encourage you to volunteer or attend a work day if you are able. It will be a great way to meet your community members, the garden managers, and literally dig in!

Also, please read about what it means to be a community gardener on our website before submitting a plot application. The plot lottery will occur early next spring. 

Contact emily@gardencityharvest.org if you're interested in getting involved as a volunteer, gardenergarden leadership committee member, or all of the above!

We will continue to update this page about the progress of the new garden, so stay in touch!

The garden is coming together. Huge thanks to a great group of volunteers!

 About 40 neighborhood residents joined the Park Design Workshop in 2017 to help design the new park. The workshop allowed residents to share their long-range vision for the new park, which included a community garden!
