Hunger Garden Really Grows

It may sit empty now.......but next year the Kane Street Community Garden in Lacrosse will again produce close to 32 thousand pounds of fruits and vegetables. At least Shelly Krause hopes it will after a bumper crop this year. So how do you take care of a garden that size with only one half time paid position.1500 volunteers.


The Hunger Task Force now serves 57 food programs in the area. This past August, they had already surpassed the total distributed pounds from the year before. Krause says this past summer they even got a helping hand from Drew Johnson, who set out to travel to the forty-eight contiguous United States in forty-eight weeks doing a variety of volunteer/service work in each state
