WEST SALEM, WI (WXOW)—West Salem FFA students showed off their community garden Monday morning.
They planted more than an acre of vegetables in June; and they've spent the summer volunteering their time taking care of the garden and harvesting vegetables.
So far this year, they've harvested about 3,000 pounds of vegetables.
All of it goes to wafer.
"We always had a garden at our house and it was nice to go out and learn how to grow things but here to see, ok I'm learning how to grow a different thing but also I'm not going to take it home for myself I'm going to give it out to others its just a wonderful feeling," Maddy Mahlum, West Salem FFA President said.
Land O Lakes gave the students a $1,200 grant for the garden.
Land O Lakes sponsors 21 community gardens across the country.
