Victor Community Garden is Improved for New Season

The Victor Community Garden got underway last weekend with a spring garden work day, according to Jill Davies.

The 20-foot by 20-foot plots were prepped, with the help of Trapper Creek Job Corps. The Job Corps also joined with volunteers to install a fully functioning composting outhouse for gardeners. The toilet was designed by Roger DeHaarn and materials were donated by Donaldsons, Western Building Center, Sutton Heating and Cooling, Ace Hardware, Massa Building Supply and Don’s Home Center. Davies said donations accounted for all but $50 in building materials.

Now, all they need are gardeners!

Those who get involved will have access to organic compost, mulch, tools and an automated watering system. There’s also a flower garden inside the deer-proof area to help encourage pollinators.

To be part of the gardening community, it’s only $35 for the whole growing season. The money goes right back into maintaining the garden on 5th Street on the southwest edge of Victor. Call Jill Davies of Sustainable Living Systems at (406) 642-3601.
