An innovative project is underway in Boulder, Montana to create an edible park called The Boulder Forest Garden. The City of Boulder has donated the use of 1 acre of ground, conveniently located adjacent to an existing city park, to develop a gardening system that mimics a natural woodland environment.
Started by Growing Community Naturally (GCN), a local community volunteer group, this grass-roots project is using permaculture design principles to build living soil, harvest rain water in the landscape, and cultivate a perennial based food system. The Boulder Forest Garden will educate students and community members on methods for sustainably growing food in our northern climate and be a location to harvest fresh, delicious, chemical-free food.
By partnering with the 21st Century Community Learning Center, a program that provides after school and summer programming, morning tutoring, and adult education, GCN will be able to include the Boulder Elementary students and adult education students in the planning and care of The Boulder Forest Garden project.
Here is the address to our campaign.
