School Garden

Garden City Harvest partners with Missoula County Public Schools to create and maintain on-site school gardens. Rattlesnake School is lucky to have a school garden, named the Rattlesnake Outdoor Learning Center, through this program.

During the height of the growing season, Garden City Harvest invites the Rattlesnake community to join them at the garden for these events:

  • Summer Open Garden Hours: Thursdays 9am- Noon from June 22- August 17 2017 Garden City Harvest staff will be in the garden every Thursday morning this summer. Come visit, help us work in the garden, learn about farming, and try some fresh fruits and vegetables!
  • Summer Family Cooking Class: Wednesday July 26th 2017 from 5:30-7:30pm Join us for a free, fun, and family-friendly cooking class in the garden this summer.
  • Adopt the Garden for a Week! We are looking for Rattlesnake community members to adopt-the-garden each week of the summer. It will entail opening the garden for a couple of hours during the week, whenever it fits into the volunteer’s schedule. Light weeding, harvesting, and welcoming the community into the space are encouraged. Some perks of the job include taking home free fresh produce, enjoying the outdoors, and meeting new friends.
