Welcome to Helping Hands Garden

Helping Hands Community Garden

WHERE: We're located in the back left corner at the West Montgomery County Community Development Center (CDC), at 31355 Friendship Drive, in Magnolia, Texas, 77355.

HOW: To get involved with Helping Hands Community Garden contact
Judy Rose at 832-257-6601. Please call to arrange a tour of the Garden or to learn the hours and days volunteers are in the Garden. We're typically there Mon-Wed-Fri mornings.

WHEN: We are a year round garden! Many of our volunteers garden as their schedules allow. If you have chosen a personal garden plot you may also garden at your own convenience. Our volunteers garden on Mon-Wed-Fri mornings; the hours change with the seasons. We garden early in summer months!

WHAT: Helping Hands Garden is a Community Garden that offers garden beds for individuals or families, Scout groups, apartment dwellers, Senior citizens, or those with physical limitations; and where there is assistance, if needed, by other gardeners. We are trying our best to meet the needs of ALL in the community by offering raised 'special needs' beds so those with physical limitations can garden easily.

Our Community Gardening Policy

  • Before you begin to garden you must meet once with the garden director, or a volunteer representative, to learn our gardening practices, how weeds are disposed of, what we compost, what to do with produce, etc.
  • Your garden beds must be regularly maintained
  • The crop you grow must be legal
  • Organic gardening practices must be used (we teach organic options)
  • Harvest must be picked as it ripens
  • You may garden at your own convenience, but please keep the Garden clean for others
  • Any extra 'harvest' please consider giving to those in need or on limited income (elderly, Vets, unemployed, etc).
  • Please alert Helping Hands Garden when you are away and volunteers will harvest for you.


  • Why a Community Garden? So others can have an opportunity and a sunny location to garden.
  • Why garden together? By gardening together we can grow a community of understanding and tolerance from working and learning together. We also want to encourage a growing purpose in the elderly and the wayward teen, direction and passion for avid gardeners, and support to feed the hungry.
  • Why organic gardening? We want to teach organic gardening principals because it is healthier for us all, and because everything we do in the garden ends up downhill in the pond where wildlife gets its survival!

WHO: Everyone with an interest in gardening! You do not need to know how to garden! We're here to help you learn organic gardening principles and organic pest control. We have gardeners who will help you get the best crop from your plot. Master Gardeners can be scheduled at the Community Development Center (CDC) to speak on a wide range of gardening topics. Please contact us about getting involved; we always appreciate helping hands!

What Helping Hands Garden needs:

  • 'helping hands' volunteers (always)
  • seeds
  • bagged pine straw and bagged leaves
  • garden tools
  • garden gloves
  • organic ant killer (feedstore powdered garlic works great!)
  • organic fertilizer
  • fruit trees

'The ONE HOUR Dues Principle' - Each gardener is expected to give 1 hour each month for general garden maintenance in addition to time spent working his/her bed. This will help keep all plants and the Orchard watered; grounds cleared of litter; and the areas outside of each bed weeded. With this principle we can offer FREE garden beds.
