In 2014, The Billings Parks and Recreation Department, in conjunction with the Billings Metro VISTA Project, opened Billings’s first city-operated community garden at Amend Park. The Department recognized the benefits of a community garden, including education, empowerment, food security, and so much more. Since then, the project has evolved into the Billings Grown Garden Initiative, now including two community gardens, and a vision to expand food security throughout Billings.
