Each summer, the Outagamie County Master Gardener Association hosts a community garden walk to help raise money to further develop the Community gardens of Goodwill Grows, and to add food to the local food pantries. This year’s Garden Walk will be held on Saturday, June 20 when the public is invited to tour five select gardens in the Fox Cities. For more information about the times, cost, and addresses, please visit our Facebook page.
Each of the gardens represents a unique look at gardening style and design, and each of the five will be the subject of posts. Today, Columbus Elementary School Learning Garden:
“This is your opportunity to see how the values of gardening and growing are being bestowed upon our most precious resource: our children! Columbus Elementary School has a wonderful learning garden headed by Master Gardener Shirley Martin. She animates garden stories for first- through fourth-graders and delights them with the knowledge of where our food comes from. Look for the Peter Rabbit garden, the Three Sisters garden, as well as herbs, cold frames, and compost bins. This effort does everything to explain why we love to garden. This is a garden gem that serves a core Appleton neighborhood.”
