Since 1995 Extension Waukesha County has managed the Waukesha County Rental Gardens. Initially designed to meet the needs of those who want to garden but don’t have the space or sun in their yard, this rental garden has blossomed into a project that yields not only fresh produce but fellowship, fun, and gardening skill development.
The Garden has grown over the years to include 36 regular plots that are plowed each spring and 49 permanent plots that do not get plowed, as well as an organic section that includes 11 regular plots and 3 permanent plots.
