2015 is the seventh season for the Lands’ End “Guaranteed Green” Garden. First planted in 2009, the garden is organic; chemical herbicides or pesticides are not allowed. On average, about 140 pounds of fresh produce is donated annually to food pantries through the Southwestern Wisconsin Community Action Program. (As this is written, 38 pounds of potatoes, onions, broccoli, beans, beets, tomatoes, cucumbers, cabbage, kale & squash were donated yesterday.) In those seven years, 330 plots have been rented to more than 130 gardeners, 25% of whom have participated for 4 or more seasons. On average, 40-50 plots are planted each season, depending on the plot size requested. Plot sizes range from 4'x10' to 16'x24'. There are free tools available for use, and plans are underway to get rain barrels to supply water for the garden.
