Montrose, CO – Get outside and plant your own fun by reserving a plot within the Niagara Community Garden this year. Applications for the 2018 Niagara Community Garden are now available for pick-up at City Hall.
The community-based organic garden, located at 2424 E. Niagara Road, is entering its fifth season and the City of Montrose encourages any individual, group or family to participate regardless of experience in gardening.
Plots are available on a first-come-first-serve basis and range in cost from $15 to $30 depending on plot size. Water and soil are included in the fee. There is a $25 deposit per plot. The garden will be open from April 14 through November 10. Applications may be picked up at City Hall, located at 433 S. First Street, between the hours of 7 a.m. and 6 p.m., Monday through Thursday.
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.
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.
