HOPE CENTER NEWS

GREEN POWER GARDEN BEGINS THE 2017 SEASON

 

A big THANK YOU to all volunteers and donors who contributed to the success of Green Power Garden in 2016.  WELCOME to all the new gardeners who will be joining us in the Green Power Garden this season. 

 

 

Green Power Garden will continue to be located at the Lawnsdale School Property for the 2017 Growing Season.   All of the food produced at Green Power Garden goes to supplement the meal program for the homeless at the Hope Center and others in need in Waukesha County.

 

Although it is too early to work in the garden, it’s not too early to think about gardening.  

 

Green Power Garden is an approved Wisconsin Master Gardener project.

 

The Garden is located in Southeast Waukesha County: S46W22996 Lawnsdale Road.

The garden is found just off CTH"I" and Milkyway Road in the Town of Waukesha

GREEN POWER GARDEN WELCOMES YOUR DONATIONS.  In addition to volunteering, the garden is always in need of new or used garden supplies such as hand and power tools, stakes for tomato plants and old bed sheets used for tying plants.  We are happy to take your old blue recycling bins.  Cash donations to support the port-a potty rental and other garden needs are greatly appreciated.  Please contact us if you have anything we might be able to use.
