The LaCrosse Community Garden provides an opportunity for the homeowner to grow produce within walking distance of their home and to enjoy all the benefits of socializing with neighbors while working with the soil. The garden plots are to be used for the LaCrosse homeowner’s personal enjoyment. The produce and/or flowers grown are not to be sold.
- This community garden is to be organic – no pesticides or herbicides of any kind will be allowed.
