New community garden installed at Northside Elementary in La Crosse

LA CROSSE, Wis. (WKBT) — The Franciscan Sisters of Perpetual Adoration helped fund a garden that was installed Thursday at Northside Elementary.

The Logan Northside Neighborhood Association helped design and find a location for the garden, and technical education students from Logan High School helped install it.

Northside Elementary students will be able to plant, grow and harvest the garden with their families.

The garden serves as a blueprint for growing fresh food and building a community.

FSPA Sister Anita Beskar said, “What this community is doing is taking their littlest ones up and helping them understand the wonder and glory of creation.”

Two more gardens will be funded and installed at Logan High School and the North Community Library.
