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.

Plots being grown in

“Can’t believe how much food I was able to grow for my family!”

“I’ve met so many great people and learned so much about gardening”

“Love seeing how everyone gardens a little bit differently. So many creative people here.”

“They even keep bees on site, which I think is so cool”

“Carrots grown in dirt are delicious! My kids are finally eating vegetables”

“Having access to an organic garden in my own backyard is a dream come true”

Composting 101

CUT IT UP

Prepare your garden scraps for composting by cutting them into pieces rougly the size of your hand. This will dramatacily reduce the time it takes your compost to be ready for use

VARY THE MIX

Along with adding your fresh "green" material, it is important to add some "brown" material to your compost pile. This can be a shovel full of last year's compost. 

COMPOST AT HOME

It is just as improtant to compost at home as it is to work on composting at the garden. Set up a container to keep all of your organic scraps in and create a composting area in your yard. Your plants will thank you for it.
