Towne's Harvest is a Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) program operated by students, faculty and staff at Montana State University. A Towne's Harvest Garden Field Day on September 16 from 5-7 p.m. offers a chance to learn about the different crops grown and what the garden offers the community. The program provides several opportunities during the summer season, including summer courses, student internships, volunteer opportunities, and community supported agriculture shares (CSAs are vegetable subscriptions where community members pay a set amount for a season's worth of produce and then receive a share of vegetables each week).

This is a great opportunity to learn about the many crops growing at Towne's Harvest Garden, including arugula, beets, broccoli, carrots, cauliflower, cilantro, corn, cucumbers, dill, eggplants, fennel, green beans, leeks, lettuce, melons, onions, parsley, peas, peppers, potatoes, pumpkins, squash, tomatoes and watermelons. Speakers from Towne's Harvest and MSU will be available to answer questions.

Towne's Harvest is located close to the MSU Campus on the Agricultural Experiment Station and MSU Horticulture Farm. To get to Towne's Harvest from South 19th Street, turn onto Garfield, which is the street just south of College (left if you're coming from the south or right if traveling from the north). Drive down Garfield for a short distance and take your first left onto a gravel road by a big blue sign that says MSU Bozeman Agriculture Research and Teaching Farm. Down the gravel road, the Towne's Harvest Garden is located on the left side of the road. Turn right on the first service road and park in the parking lot of the equestrian center. It is a short walking distance from the parking lot to the Towne's Harvest Garden.
