“”GROW La Crosse hosted a ribbon cutting today for its newest school garden in the city of La Crosse.

The new school garden was made possible through a purchase made by Shelter Development. The property is a vacant city lot located kitty-corner to Hamilton Early Learning Center in La Crosse. Shelter Development, who received a grant from Organic Valley to buy the land, is a non-profit organization that helps other non-profits with real estate needs.

GROW La Crosse has agreed to develop and maintain the land as a garden space for students that will be used for learning experiences and for growing produce for student programming.

With the help of corporate sponsor Mayo Clinic Health System – Franciscan Healthcare, GROW La Crosse will have the necessary funding to keep the new educational garden up and running.

GROW La Crosse currently has over 8,000 square feet of garden space in the School District of La Crosse. They currently maintain gardens at State Road Elementary, Spence Elementary, Hintgen Elementary, and Hamilton & SOTA I Elementary Schools.””””[vc_gallery type=”flexslider_slide” interval=”0″ images=”12825,12824,12826,12828,12827,12823″ img_size=”625×417″]””
