The Boulder Forest Garden Indiegogo Fundraiser was a Success!

We raised $3646.00 to go towards building the Boulder Forest Garden.  Thanks to everyone who donated or shared the campaign.  We are working on sending out the incentive gifts to donors.

The Boulder Forest Garden received its first grant!  We were awarded $1000 from the Elkhorn Community Foundation.  It is exciting to receive our first grant from a local foundation.   We appreciate the support!

We also had another work day at the site.  Montana Conservation Corp. helped us for a second day as we put in more fence posts.  We are almost ready to put the fence wire up.  We also started cleaning up the dead cottonwoods in the area and piling them to be used to build hugelkulture (woody, raised growing beds).  Thanks to all the dedicated volunteers who showed up to help and those behind the scenes helping with meals and drinks for the work crew.

If you are interested in volunteering or donating please contact Susie at to sign up.  We also need donations of healthy food and snacks for work days.
