Helena Community Gardens (HGC) builds gardens, provides the tools and knowledge to grow food, and increases access to healthy and affordable food. We currently manage eleven gardens in the Helena area.

Cooney Homes Garden, like each of our community gardens, provides participants with an individual plot, tools, water, compost, straw, common space, and the knowledge and guidance of Garden Managers and the HCG network. With these resources — and a little bit of persistence and patience — gardeners cultivate food for their family and friends. Gardeners are encouraged to donate to Helena Food Share, as well!

Cooney Homes Garden was built with a grant from Home Depot, and is located at Cooney Convalescent Homes.  Both residents and community members garden here. 10 plots, 4’X8′, all raised beds.
