Located on Hwy 209, across from the Ferndale Fire Hall 4 mi east of Bigfork.

The garden has been worked using the proven concept of Square Foot Gardening, developed by Mel Bartholomew some 25 years ago. As we discovered, this method provides even the most novice gardener with almost guaranteed success. One 4X4 bed will supply one person with enough produce to make on salad every day of the growing season and one more 4X4 bed will supply the daily supper vegetables.

Check out Square Foot Gardening website for more info about this method.

The regular fee to rent one plot is $20. There is an early sign up price of $15 per 4X4 plot until April 30.. Special “family plot” pricing of four plots for $50 if purchased by April 15. All monies will be used to support the Community Garden operations. For those interested, opportunities exist to provide sweat equity in lieu of payment.
