Milwaukee's Alice's Garden Flourishes w/Community & Environment
The place some call "a little slice of heaven" on Milwaukee's near north side is now getting some big recognition for its role in being a good environmental steward. Alice's Garden in the Lindsay Heights neighborhood received the "Green Luminary Award" from The Milwaukee Metropolitan Sewerage District for the month of May. The two-acre site manages thousands of gallons of rain water, helping to nourish flowers, vegetables, herbs, and fruit trees.
Alice's Garden is celebrating its 45th anniversary this year. There are actually 120 rental farming plots, but currently there's a waiting list because of its popularity. And beside all the gardening spots, there's the popular meditative area called the "Labyrinth." This is where many programs, like yoga and reading, are held.
