The Community Gardens Program provides garden space and logistics assistance to Brown County residents to facilitate their access to affordable, nutritious and culturally appropriate food. Developed in 1997 as part of an overall initiative to increase food security in Brown County, the program has expanded to eight community gardens on over four acres with 261 plots and 148 gardeners. The gardens are managed cooperatively by Brown County UW-Extension, the City of Green Bay, and local volunteers. Currently, we receive financial support from AmeriCorps and grants but are seeking financial support from individuals and local corporations to fund the annual overhead costs.
Brown County UW-Extension Community Gardens Program empowers all county residents to grow healthy food by providing resources and organizational capacity.
