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.

Cruse Overlook 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!

Cruse Overlook Garden is supported by St. Paul’s United Methodist Church, and is right next to the Guardian Apartments. The garden is fully wheelchair accessible.
