Niagara Community Garden
The Niagara Community Garden (NCG), established in 2014 in collaboration with the Valley Food Partnership and LiveWell Montrose Olathe, is a community-based organic gardening opportunity that promotes healthy living and nutrition in a small community environment. We welcome you to meet, grow and harvest with your neighbors!
The garden is located at 2424 E. Niagara Road and consists of 46 plots: 12 10ft. x 20 ft. plots, 24 10ft. x 10ft. plots, and 10 wheelchair-height 5ft. x 20ft. garden plots. See the Garden Layout Map. The garden is open from April through October.
The use of natural compost and organic growing techniques is encouraged. Gardeners may reserve up to two plots. Reservations for more than two plots will be reviewed by the volunteer Niagara Community Garden Committee (NCGC).
Because this is truly a community garden, we also work together to maintain and improve the space for the enjoyment of all.
