2017 Community Garden Applications Available

Applications to take part in the 2017 Niagara Community Garden are now available. The community-based organic garden (2424 E. Niagara Road) is entering its fourth season and is open to any individual, group or family for participation, whether experienced in gardening or not. The garden will be open April 15 to November 11. Plots are available on a first-come-first-served basis and range in cost from $15 to $30 depending on the size. Water and soil are included in the fee. 

The city is committed to promoting quality of life, in part by providing outdoor living and recreational opportunities. In 2014, the City of Montrose Public Works Department, LiveWell Montrose-Olathe, and the Valley Food Partnership collaborated to construct the Niagara Community Garden on East Niagara Road. 

Contact Valley Food Partnership and LiveWell Montrose Olathe at (970) 249-0705 to learn about other gardens in our community and opportunities to volunteer. Citizens who are interested in constructing gardens in other parts of Montrose are encouraged to contact city staff.

Applications may be picked up at City Hall (433 S. First Street) between the hours of 7 a.m. and 6 p.m., Monday through Thursday. For more information about the Niagara Community Garden, and to access the online application, visit, contact Parks and Special Projects Superintendent John Malloy at (970) 240-1411, or Deputy City Clerk Carolyn Bellavance at (970) 240-1421.
