Community Gardens

Community Gardens allow individuals, families and groups to experience the wonders of gardening in a general location.

For those who do not have the outdoor space in the backyards community gardens are a wonderful way to still enjoy planting, tending, and harvesting delicious fruits and vegetables or enjoy fabulous flowers. West Bend, Kewaskum and  Germantown all have community gardens available.  For more information contact the UW Extension office.

Each year the WCMG plants a vegetable garden at a community garden site in the West Bend area.  The purpose of this garden is:

  • to educate the community in gardening practices,
  • to offer assistance to other gardeners,
  • to demonstrate a variety of gardening techniques,
  • to provide fresh vegetables to a local food pantry.

The planting, maintenance, and harvesting of this garden requires many volunteer hours and is always looking for Master Gardeners for help.   The inability to plant our Kewaskum garden due to very wet soil has necessitated  a change.  As of the spring of 2014, the WCMG community garden plot will  move to the garden plots provided by the Community Church of West Bend located at 2005 S Main St. in West Bend. With large 20’x 20′ plots and ample water on site, we look forward to a successful 2014 season.
