Community Day kicks off the growing season


La Crosse, Wisconsin (WXOW)- It is finally the beginning of the growing season, and to celebrate, the Hunger Task Force hosted a Community Day at the Kane Street Community Garden.

Volunteers prepared the garden and began planting some vegetables.

Last year, growers harvested nearly 28,000 pounds of produce.

The food is then distributed to the community for free, and you don’t have to live in La Crosse to reap the benefits.

The Community Garden Coordinator says, "Absolutely everyone is invited to come out. We think of it as everyone’s garden.

Once it’s fully grown, the organic garden distributes produce every Tuesday and Thursday.

All remaining vegetables are donated to the Hunger Task Force.
