Garden City Harvest-2nd Street

South 2nd Street West, Missoula Montana 59801

Plots: 16

Location: Intersection of Inez and 2nd Street

Highlights: herb and perennial garden, compost system, native plant garden

Jason Kiely and Gita Saedi Kiely helped to start the 2nd Street Community Garden when they first moved to the neighborhood, gathering support from their neighbors, applying for grants, and turning what was a weed patch that had to be maintained by Public Works into a vibrant, growing space. The garden is surrounded by a beautiful native plant garden, a passion project of another neighbor, and has an herb wheel and healthy compost system.

Garden City Harvest builds community through agriculture by growing produce with and for people with low-incomes, offering education and training in ecologically conscious agriculture, and using our sites for the personal restoration of youth and adults.

Each of our community gardens provides participants with a 15 by 15 foot plot, tools, water, compost, straw, common space and the knowledge and guidance of leadership committee members and the Garden City Harvest community gardens staff. With these resources, and a little bit of persistence and patience, gardeners cultivate food for their family (and often their friends, too).
