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 in growing food in the Amend Community Garden and Sprouts Container Garden check out program. Not an experienced gardener? Classes, workshops, and mentors are available to ensure all skill levels are successful. The garden is a great place to get involved in the community, spend time with family, and make new friends! Amend Community Garden has a variety of plot sizes available from 3’x6’ to 20’x20’. If the desired plot size is not available, we will do our best to accommodate gardeners with gardening space equivalent to a 20’x20’plot or less. Not ready to commit to a full garden plot? Check out our Sprouts Container Garden Program, and bring the garden experience home with you. Applications for both programs are accepted after February 1st.

Youth Scholarship Program The Billings Parks & Recreation Scholarship Fund provides youth in our community access to recreational programs whose families may be experiencing economic hardships. These scholarships provide eligible families exposure to positive experiences and active lifestyles. Through our programs, children are provided the opportunity to gain and refine life skills, and to develop positive personal and social assets. We need your help to provide recreation opportunities to children who would not otherwise have the opportunity! Your donation will help to provide an enrichment activity, class or program that will help a child build essential characteristics that are needed to succeed in life. 100% of the donations to this fund go directly to support scholarships for Billings’ youth. To apply for a scholarship, please stop by the Parks & Recreation office to pick up a scholarship application.
