Through a multi-organization county effort, Phoenix Middle School in Delavan WI was able to take part in a new community Garden this year. The garden was made possible because of a $4000 GardenWIse grant received from the University of Wisconsin-Extension office. Families participated in owning their own piece of the garden and could keep most of the produce. It is harvest time and now the remaining goods will be sent to local food pantries. The garden impacted many lives and became the very definition of a community garden. Thank you to everyone whom participated in this amazing experience!
