The mission of the Badger Prairie Community Garden is to cultivate the spirit of community and enhance quality of life by creating and sustaining organic gardens of vegetables, flowers, plants, and herbs. The gardens will foster environmental sustainability and stewardship, advance horticultural and nutritional education, provide a beautiful and natural retreat, and produce a healthy supplemental food source for its gardeners and the hungry.Local groups, schools, families, and individuals will be able to reserve plots for a sliding scale fee at the garden allowing people of all ages and abilities a part in the farm to table movement. Whether involvement is educational, economical, or just for the enjoyment of getting your hands dirty and growing your own food, this offers a great venue for bringing the Verona area community together

How do I become a volunteer?

New volunteers attend a general orientation to learn about the Garden and review specific volunteer service areas. Prospective volunteers fill out an application to indicate their interests, availability, experience, and service preferences. Current volunteer opportunities are discussed to help match your qualifications with the Garden's needs. In many areas, you will learn on the job from fellow volunteers and your staff supervisor. Specific training is offered and required for some service areas.
