Heroes of the Week: Alice’s Garden Volunteers
“For me, Alice’s Garden is a space of welcome to the greater Milwaukee community that crosses bridges with food, health and people,” says Venice Williams, executive director of Alice’s Garden. “The garden itself creates a place for all types of conversation and interaction. People who would probably never cross paths otherwise come together and meet in a garden. People cross all types of barriers in this space and that makes it magical to me.”Those interested in volunteering can contact Gloria Wright at 414-562-0229. Monetary and gardening-supply donations are always welcome as well. To rent a plot, contact Williams at 414-687-0122. Upcoming events include the community potluck and reading of Seedfolks by Paul Fleischman on Sept. 10 at 5:30 p.m. and the Full Moon, Full Woman event on Thursday, Sept. 19, at 5:30 p.m. For more information, visit alicesgardenmilwaukee.com.
