We are proud to be hosting this year's Olbrich Home Garden Tour on Friday July 9 and Saturday July 10.  Please join us to see first-hand how gardening can be a community effort. Be inspired by creative solutions to gardening problems, beautiful landscapes, and interesting vegetables. Pastries and sandwiches will be available for purchase onsite from Manna Cafe during the tour.  Pre-tour day tickets for the event are available at Olbrich Botanical Gardens, Felly's Flowers, and Jung Garden Centers, and can also be purchased on the days of the tour.        
Tickets will also be available on site for the "At Home With Nature" Raffle.  Buy tickets to win a gazebo, chicken coop, play structure, or garden shed.  Proceeds from the raffle will benefit Community GroundWorks and the Madison Waldorf School.   
See you there!

It's been an exciting week for Community GroundWorks!  Not only were we featured in June's issue of Madison Magazine, but we also got plenty of attention when we installed a vegetable garden at the Capitol on Tuesday.  Check out these articles in the Wisconsin State Journal, the Wisconsin Radio Network, and the Superior Telegram.  And listen to this radio clip on WPR

Help us continue on this exciting trend!  We are working with Goodman Community Center to win an online vote for a project grant contest sponsored by Nature's Path Organics to expand our partnership at the East High Youth Farm.  Please take a few minutes to cast your vote for us.  Voting ends on May 31!
