Down to Earth Community Gardens

about Us

Helping the Shalom Center plant their garden in 2014.


Down to Earth Community Gardens was created in 2012 with a vision to bring gardening and it's joys to the South Eastern Wisconsin area.


Down to Earth's mission is to empower our community members to “help themselves”.  We believe the way to a better community is through connecting to the Earth by becoming healthy, happy and proud of our own accomplishments.  If everyone grew their own food no one would go hungry. Our mission is to create an environment where people of all ages can come together and experience growing, cooking and eating fresh healthy food.
