Community Garden Work Day on Saturday, August 6, at 9am

Garden Work Day, 2021

Many hands make for light work! We will be spreading bark, weeding the new orchard, organizing the garden shed, and working on the compost bins on Saturday, August 6, at 9am. Please join us for a fun work day and see how all the new fruit trees have grown since we planted them last spring!

You can also check out our 35-variety tomato test garden and sample some of our produce! Herbs will also be available from the Little Free Garden.

We will have tools, snacks, and water. Questions? Contact Board President Gray Henderson,, 520-561-0643.

Looking for Little Free Garden caretakers!

Look around the community for a Little Free Garden! These projects are designed along the lines of Little Free Libraries, providing free fresh produce to curious children in our community. We are looking for local Bonners Ferry businesses that would like to sponsor one of these small raised beds, which can be customized for your spot.

Gardeners for Regional Organic Wellbeing, or GROW!, received a small grant from the City of Bonners Ferry and its High Five project to help create these demonstration gardens around the community.  Bonners Ferry is the first Idaho location to host Little Free Gardens. For more information on how you can sponsor a garden, please download this application or contact Gerry Ann Howlett or Kate Painter.
