Formerly known as the Growing Community Project, Helena Community Gardens was founded in 2007 through a partnership between WEEL (Working for Equality and Economic Liberation) and AERO (Alternative Energy Resources Organization). In 2011 we changed our name to Helena Community Gardens and established our own nonprofit organization. We are a group of dedicated volunteers managing 9 community gardens in the Helena area.
The greater Helena area.
Over 6,000 lbs donated to Helena Food Share in 2018! Also many free gardening workshops and classes, and the ability for people to GROW THEIR OWN FOOD!
Currently in need of volunteers to keep our gardens up to speed!
Other pint nights, annual appeal letter, small grants.
They will be used to improve the state of the gardens, buy materials, and help Helena’s food supply.
