Connecting children to healthy food and nature
Farm Camp Cancellation 
In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, we have made the hard decision to cancel all farm programming at Deep Roots Community Farm through at least September 15th. Based on the La Crosse County Health Department’s designation of our county as red/severe risk of Covid spread we need to do our part to keep our community safe and healthy, and in particular to protect the more vulnerable people in our community. We look forward to resuming our work on the farm to connect children to healthy food and nature as soon as it is safe to do so.Virtual Bountiful Garden Tour
