Missoula County Update

The last quarter at Summit’s Missoula office has been action packed to say the least. Summit staff has been hard at work with administrative duties, planning for this summer’s symposium, following the state budget cuts, health care reform, planning for the 2011 Legislative session, starting another round of BALLS classes, hosting social events like Mardi Gras Monday, and much more.

In addition to our work in the community, we have also been busy planning for the 20th anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act (see article on Page 1) and working to provide our consumers with a host of classes and other trainings that aim to increase independence and quality of life.

Garden City Harvest Accessible Garden Plots in Missoula!
Garden City Harvest will have three accessible community garden plots available at Orchard Gardens Neighborhood Farm, 201 North Grove Street. Two plots will be wheelchair-accessible and one will be raised. The accessible plots will be ready for growing in mid-late May.

GCH provides on-site water, tools, compost and gardening support for community gardeners. Gardening in community is a great way to meet new friends, eat healthy and save on grocery expenses. Last year, GCH community gardeners reported saving an average of $16/week on grocery bills. The farm is located at homeWORD’s Orchard Gardens housing site on Grove Street, about .3 mile north of 3rd, just west of Reserve.

To reserve a plot, please contact Sarah Bortis, Farm Manager, at 721-2504.
