The Northside Community Garden is one of our longest-standing gardens. Initially, the garden was started by MUD and a group of Northside neighbors on the Helena Catholic Diocese’s land. Shortly thereafter, Garden City Harvest joined the partnership and now maintains what is now a thriving garden in the heart of the neighborhood.

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).
