Garden for Life

An acre of land on Powwow Road has been turned into a beautiful garden that provides fresh produce for the community and our food pantry. See our progress in year one as we turned a barren patch of land into a bountiful garden. We're looking forward to growing even more produce in year two. Would you like to be involved in this fun, family-friendly project? Email foodsovereignty@arleecdc.org or call 406-726-5550. Funding for the garden is provided by No Kid Hungry Share Our Strength, the Gianforte Family Foundation, and the O.P. & W.E. Edwards Foundation.

Garden With Us This Summer

Join us this summer for some dirt therapy and fresh-picked organic produce! We’ll be getting the garden ready for planting on Saturday, May 18 at 11 AM. Bring your gloves, rakes and other garden tools. Wear your gardening clothes and expect to get dirty! Bring a potluck dish to share and we’ll provide hamburgers and hot dogs. This summer, our garden volunteers can take their pick of working in the garden Wednesdays from 6:30 to 8:30 PM or Fridays 10 AM to 12 PM. We’ll have a weekly Zoom class of 40 minutes or less each Monday at 7 PM starting May 13 to help you grow your gardening skills. Check out the full schedule of this year's gardening classes and activities.  Volunteers also get to take beautiful fresh organic produce home to enjoy. It's a fun, family-friendly activity and everyone is welcome. To sign up, email info@arleecdc.org or call 406.726.5550. Please sign up by May 6. 

First Year Harvest

In its first year, our garden yielded 4,181 pounds of fresh produce that we distributed through our food pantry and to our volunteers, senior centers, child care facilities and area food sovereignty partners. We have all the infrastructure in place: wildlife fencing, a drip irrigation system, tools and a storage shed. All we need now is you!
