Elementary School Garden featured in a book

01/15/2015 12:51 pm

The West Salem Elementary School Garden was mentioned in a book published by the Hillview Urban Agriculture Center.

Check out THE LA CROSSE AREA'S GROWING EXPERIENCE:  OUR AREA'S URBAN AGRICULTURE & LOCAL FOOD SYSTEM, PAST - PRESENT - FUTURE.

Along with this, the West Salem and Bangor School gardens and greenhouses will be partnering with the Hillview Urban Agriculture Center to begin a fundraising campaign. 

The future of the garden and greenhouse programs will be reliant on public and private funding as grant money is getting more and more competitive. As we move forward, we will be looking at Vermicultured Compost from Hillview and UW-La Crosse, seed starting kits and seedling plants, Aquaponics and Hydroponic systems, and apple trees and an irrigation system in the WS garden. 
 
We look forward to a sustainable garden program that will also provide sustenance to our food program!
