Garden City Harvest Charity Profile

Over 90% of the produce we eat in Montana is shipped in from out of state. Yet in the early part of this century, Missoula earned the title The Garden City by producing fruits and vegetables for much of the surrounding region.

Garden City Harvest believes that we need to revive our regional tradition of producing our own food for our community, including the 20% of Missoulians who live in poverty.

Since receiving a USDA Community Food Project grant in 1996, Garden City Harvest has been planting the seeds for a diverse and fruitful community effort.

Garden City Harvest's Mission are:

Grow and distribute healthy food to low-income people.

Offer education and training in ecologically conscious food production.

Use our sites for the personal restoration of troubled youth and adults.

Garden City Harvest Volunteer Information

The Garden Organizer at each garden will determine the hours available for volunteers. Some people choose to work at the garden closest to them, however many choose a garden that has a volunteer schedule that better fits their free time. As the summer progresses the schedule has more morning shifts and fewer afternoon shifts.

Volunteers are expected to ask the Garden Organizer for assignments, and check in when the task is completed. If you will be late or absent for your scheduled shift, please call your garden organizer in advance. This helps the garden organizer plan projects and seek alternate volunteers if needed.

Volunteers should come to the site prepared for a variety of work and weather. Bring gloves, hat, rain gear, water, snacks, and sun protection. Closed toed shoes are required.

Smoking is not allowed at the garden sites or greenhouses because of the tobacco mosaic virus, a plant disease that affects members of the tomato family. Smokers are asked to wash their hands before coming into contact with plants or soil.
