To get more people in Ravalli County to start growing gardens and find the joy, nutrition, health and economic importance of having a home garden.
Volunteers building raised beds for O'Hara Commons Garden
The Coronavirus outbreak has resulted in a ‘shelter in place’ for an undefined period of time. It is prime spring season and the perfect time to get people to start a garden of their own. Since this time of isolation can be depressing and lonely, this will be a positive and uplifting gift to individuals to begin their first garden.
O'Hara Commons will build and deliver raised beds (8' x 4' x 16") to nominees, with soil and plant starts/seeds to begin a garden of their own. The soil is being donated by Huls Dairy and the plants are being grown by the youth interns in Homestead Organic's 'Cultivating Connections' program. Thank you to these partners.
We will be accepting nominations through April 24th. The recipients will be notified by May 1st and we will begin scheduling delivery and installation of garden beds. Please nominate a family or individual here.
We are conducting this program with the utmost regard of Coronavirus safety protocol. The recipients will stake out the location in their yard for the installation and there will be no contact between individuals and installation teams.
