City staff, in collaboration with the Valley Food Partnership and LiveWell Montrose Olathe, has constructed its first community garden. The Niagara Community Garden provides an outdoor gathering place that promotes healthy living and nutrition in a small community environment. Forty-six (46) garden plots are available in a variety of sizes for growing fruits, vegetables, herbs, or flowers. Garden Layout Map
The Community Garden is located at 2424 E. Niagara Road. Visit the Community Garden on Facebook.
How to Participate
Plots may be reserved by individuals, families, community service groups, or businesses by submitting an application. Completed garden plots, including raised beds, soil, and irrigation, are available to the public through the growing season. The garden is fenced and includes wheelchair accessible garden plots. Gardeners are responsible for providing tools, plantings, and any necessary soil amendments, compost, or mulch.
Although the garden was constructed by City of Montrose staff, we are seeking community volunteers to form a garden committee to operate the garden with City support. Our goal is to provide a garden that is managed by local gardeners to meet community needs.
