School Gardens

We currently have over 8,000 sq. ft. in the La Crosse School District.


Our involvement with school gardens has included:

  • Helping to build and maintain the gardens
  • Getting fresh produce into cafeteria and classroom snacks
  • Offering hands-on garden education sessions
  • Teaching garden-based science lessons that connect to the curriculum
  • Doing taste tests with children
  • Collaborating with after-school and recess programs

Raising and acquiring funds to keep the programs running

We currently have gardens at the following schools:

  • State Road Elementary
  • Hamilton & SOTA I Elementary
  • Spence Elementary
  • Hintgen Elementary
