Welcome

 

 

Welcome to Jackson's Garden, a private nonprofit, 501-c-3, membership-based community garden in Sheridan Montana.

Since 2009, Jackson's Garden has been helping our community to access fresh healthy foods, learn about gardening, and enjoy the benefits of our natural world.  Our mission is to sustainably support gardening for production, education, and the enjoyment of our community. This mission is carried out by dedicated and passionate volunteers who believe that access good food and the enjoyment of our natural world are the inherent rights of all people in our community.

Donated in 2010 by Les "Bing" Jackson, the 8.5 acre property features 2 acres of developed flower and vegetable gardens, a half mile of undisturbed streamside habitat, a small apple orchard, greenhouse, gazebo, and a lawn area perfect for picnics and community events - all maintained by our members and volunteers.

As our community knows, gardening in Southwestern Montana is no easy thing.  We strive to utilize and promote best practices in sustainable agriculture - practices that are sustainable both for the land, and for the people using it. Aug2013

Vision Statement

Jackson’s Garden, Inc. provides a unique opportunity for the residents of Sheridan of all ages to participate in and learn about land stewardship, vegetable and flower production and marketing, and the sustainable management of a valuable community-owned asset. These nine acres of vegetable and flower gardens, trees, trails and a stream provide a safe, quiet, relaxing and beautiful retreat for personal and social enjoyment. It is a venue for picnics, weddings, reunions and other community activities. Continuing the development of new and updated facilities will ensure the achievement of our mission.

The garden is in need of more help not only working in the garden but with publicity, social media, grant writing, the kids club, education and more.  As a volunteer or member you can join with others on scheduled work days and there is always something to do at every level of activity.

Cider Pressing October 1! 


 A  cider pressing party hosted by Jackson’s Garden will be held Saturday October 1st from 10:00am to 1:00 pm.  People are encouraged to bring their apples and clean containers and take home the cider they press or just come and watch and enjoy hot cider and fresh donuts. Washing stations will be set up to prepare your apples prior to pressing,  bring your own knives and cutting boards. However, having your apples prepped before you arrive will reduce your waiting time. Depending on the turn out, your pressing time may be limited. The first gallon you press is free, a donation of $5.00 gallon is suggested.  Volunteers are needed to help  with the pressing process.  Jackson’s Garden is located 2 miles east of Sheridan on Mill Creek Road. Watch for the greenhouses.
