Helena Food Share Garden

Our Garden

A group of volunteers helps us grow fresh produce for Helena Food Share customers in our garden. Located next door to the Pantry on Lewis Street, the Helena Food Share garden offers customers a chance to get fresh, locally grown food from the pantry during half- or full-shop visits.

During the growing season (usually July through October) our Farm Stand is open on Monday with a wide variety of fresh produce. The majority of items are from the Helena Food Share garden and other local gardens.

Gardens from around the community

Our friends at Helena Community Gardens through the 6th Ward Garden and the Jubilee Garden at St. Mary Catholic Community regularly donate fresh produce throughout the season for customers and lend their expertise and time to keep the Helena Food Share Garden growing. Thank you!

Growers throughout the valley contribute produce as well. We invite anyone to “Grow-A-Row” in your garden. Your green thumb can provide healthy, locally grown food for many area families. For information about growing a row or volunteering in our garden, email Garden Coordinator Mandy Blohm at MandyB@helenafoodshare.org.
