The Milltown Garden Patch (MGP) is a community-based, non-profit organization offering community garden plots primarily to residents of Milltown, Bonner, Riverside and East Missoula who are interested in growing their own organic produce. We’ve turned what was for years an unused parcel of land in Milltown into a cultivated and productive community area with views of the restored Clark Fork River floodplain just upstream from the confluence of the Clark Fork and Blackfoot rivers. Our ongoing goal is to create an environment in which interested residents can grow their own organic produce and create a “cash crop” which will give us the opportunity to give back to the community, by way of donations to local food banks. MGP also helps bring neighbors closer together while beautifying our community, promoting environmental awareness and providing education on the benefits of fresh, locally grown produce.
Proceeds from the KettleHouse Community UNite event will be used to help purchase new batteries for MGP’s solar powered irrigation system so we can keep growing delicious, organic food for our members and volunteers as well as continue to donate produce to the Missoula Food Bank and Poverello Center.
We’ll be raffling off a few great prizes so come down and show your support! For more information visit www.milltowngardenpatch.org/ and don’t forget to RSVP on our Facebook Page: www.facebook.com/events/1895851083992688/.
