COMMUNITY INFO Community Gardens

It’s never too early to start thinking about your garden. The Billings Parks and Recreation Department has a variety of ways to get involved, including two community gardens and a container garden check-out program. Not an experienced Gardener? We provide classes, workshops, and mentors to make sure all skill levels are successful. The garden is a great place to get involved in your community, spend time with family, and make new friends! There are a variety of plot sizes available from 3’x6’ to 20’x20’. The container garden checkout program is great for those who can’t commit to being a part of a community garden but still want to grow those veggies. We will begin accepting new applications for the 2018 growing season after March 1st. Applications are available in our office or on our website at BillingsParks.org.
