General Information

Mission: Brown County UW-Extension Community Gardens Program empowers all county residents to grow healthy food by providing resources and organizational capacity.

The Community Gardens Program provides garden space and logistical assistance to Brown County residents to facilitate their access to affordable, nutritious and culturally appropriate food. Developed in 1996 by the UW-Extension FoodWIse Program (formerly WNEP) as part of an overall initiative to increase food security in Brown County, the program has expanded to ten community gardens on over four acres with more than 300 plots and 200 gardeners. The gardens are supported by Brown County, Brown County UW-Extension, the City of Green Bay, donors, and local volunteers.
