Garden Season

Grow your own food. You will save money. You will know what's in it. You will reduce carbon emissions. You will be more self-sufficient, happier, and healthier.

The GROW plant sale is today through this weekend. Supporting this sale supports school gardens which helps children learn gardening.

Don't know how? Volunteer at one of the city's community gardens and learn (plus feel better and get some great food). Or, if you're a garden pro, share you knowledge and experience with others.

Kane Street Community Garden - it's huge and diverse and they need your help! If we don't plant it, we can't eat it!

South side "Hope Grows" Neighborhood Victory Gardens - started on 2020 as a response to the COVID-19 pandemic, these neighborhood gardens are run entirely by volunteers. You can walk or bike hear and pick some food for your family. One is at City Hall, one is at 19th & Mississippi, and one is at Aptiv on South Ave. (across from A&W). During road construction, enter Aptive from the back via Castle Drive. Learn more - email or call 608-315-2693.

North side "Seeding a Legacy of Healing" gardens - funded initially by a grant from the Franciscan Sisters of Perpetual Adoration, these gardens--at Logan HS, at Northside Elementary, and at the North Community Library--grow food and help kids learn how to do it. 

GROW school gardens - these are also neighborhood gardens and neighborhood members can help keep them going during summer. Sign up through GROW.
