If You Did Not Have A Plot Last Year
If you did not have a plot last year and are interested in gardening you may call the Recreation Division at (406) 582-2290, and get your name added to a waiting list for either or both Gardens.
Beall Park Recreation Center
415 N. Bozeman Ave.
Bozeman., MT 59715
When a plot becomes available, we will contact the name at the top of the list and work our way down until all plots are filled for that year. All names remain on the waiting list until they have had an opportunity to lease a garden plot but it could take several years depending on the amount of names on the waiting list. Contact information needs to be kept up to date. If we are unable to contact you, your name will be removed form the list. The fees for plots are $40.00/plot, plus a $40.00 deposit. A $4.00 tilling fee may also be applied depending the garden.
If You Had A Plot Last Year
New season gardening paperwork is generally sent out the end of February with a deadline four weeks out for the returning of the paperwork and fees. If the current gardener does not respond by the deadline, the plot will be offered to the name at the top of the waiting list. The garden plot rental fee is $40 with a deposit of $40 which is refundable if the plot is cleaned at the end of October to our specifications. Also there may be a $4 tilling fee depending on the garden. You may return your completed forms and fees to:
City of Bozeman Parks and Recreation Dept.
Attn: Garden Plots
P.O. Box 1230,
Bozeman, MT 59771-1230
If you wish to drop it off in person, you may bring it Beall Center at 415 N. Bozeman Ave. (Please remember to include the Return of Deposit form with your signature and address filled in as that will secure your renewal more quickly.)
