Community Gardens

Pea Pods Neighborhood Gardens, in the heart of the historic Downtown neighborhood, began with residents in one of Great Falls poorest Census tracks discussing how bleak a vacant corner lot was. Through their hard work, not only does the site provide fresh produce for 40 families in the summer; it is also beautifully landscaped, with donated flowers and shrubs. Pea Pods is a collaborative effort of residents, businesses, City of Great Falls' Neighborhood Council #7, Neighborhood Watch, Whittier School, area faith based organizations, the St. Ann's Soup Kitchen and NeighborWorks.

Pea Pods Neighborhood Gardens have had a direct, positive effect on poverty in the neighborhood; it also has fostered healthy and nutritional eating, as well as encouraged both children and adults to be good stewards of the earth. Together, they leverage multiple resources to serve this high crime, high poverty area. To secure a plot for the next growing season, to start a community garden in your neighborhood or for more information, contact Traci Hronek at peapodncg@gmail.com .
