South 14th Street Community Garden
Built in ONE DAY with the help of 350 community members and businesses, South 14th Street Community Garden is site to over 50 raised garden beds, 27 fruit and nut trees, onsite water, and a combination tool shed with open air shelter.
The garden infuses thousands of pounds of fresh produce into our food pantry supply, enhancing the nutrition of those who normally rely on canned or nonperishable foods.
Thank you to the United Way Day of Caring and Comcast Cares Day 2015 for making our community garden a reality. Check out our drone video of that amazing day!
New to 2019, the City of Manitowoc graciously invested in our activities by placing an educational greenhouse onsite.
Listen to a recent discussion with Wisconsin Public Radio's Larry Meiller where we discuss our early days.
