The Community Food & Agriculture Coalition is developing materials and resources to assist Montana farmers and ranchers in accessing land. They are interested in learning more about the challenges that you have faced and the resources that would be most helpful to you. Thanks so much for your feedback!

Click Here for the survey (http://helenagardens.us4.list-manage.com/track/click?u=3360ec23368a138bea764d654&id=8bf838abe9&e=c68c994898)

The Garden at 6th Ward Park is brand new this summer, and could use all sorts of gardening tools (especially smaller tools).  If you have good condition hand trowels or other things you can offer up, please contact us or drop them off.

The Selma Garden has a need for a garden shed.  Know of one that is not being used?  Give us a call!

If you are donating food to the Food Share this summer, please keep track of the pounds of produce you donate.  We would love to know this info for reporting and funding requests!
