“Growing South Milwaukee has a deep rooted mission to create and maintain community gardens that inspire people of all ages to grow together. Our gardeners strengthen the community by planting the seeds of change, sharing knowledge and bringing nutrient rich food back to South Milwaukee.”

That is the mission of the group leading the way toward South Milwaukee’s new community garden — an inspiring combination of building community, promoting healthy lifestyles and redeveloping downtown.

After years of hard work by this dedicated group of volunteers and sponsors, Growing South Milwaukee will move dirt at the garden site south of the South Milwaukee train depot on Earth Day, April 22.

I’m proud to stand behind their work. Please join in the festivities!

From Growing South Milwaukee and the Facebook event

We invite you to spectate as we break ground for Growing South Milwaukee‘s eagerly anticipated community garden! 

Festivities will begin at 1:00pm on Earth Day, Sunday, April 22nd, 2018. You’ll find us just south of the Train Depot {If you can get to the South Milwaukee Downtown Market – you’ll pretty much be there}

We will kick off with a few words from our team, partners, and supporters and end with our shovels turning Earth! 

Looking for an after party? A reception will follow at 1:30pm!

Celebrate with us after the groundbreaking by treating yourself to a decadent vegetarian appetizer menu designed and donated by Skyline Catering & Express Deli, champagne toasts, and beautiful music performed by local artists.

{$15 donation to join us for the reception – please}

Thank you to all of the #CommunityGarden founders:

A BIG thank you to all of our contributors!  More credits to follow. See you at the depot!
