The Community’s Garden, located on the campus of Door County Medical Center, is open to all in our community. In 2016, more than thirty families and community organizations grew fresh produce in these garden plots.
Families who rent a 20’ x 20’ garden plot have the potential to save nearly $1,000 a year on food costs. And spring is a perfect time to begin planning for summer gardening by perusing catalogs and buying and starting seeds. “Not only does a garden plot produce fresh produce in season, but end-of summer canning, freezing and dehydrating make fresh, home-grown foods available throughout the year,” says Registered Dietitian Carmen Schroeder of Door County Medical Center.
