In the summer of 2009, WTIP partnered with the Northwoods Food Project to create a community garden on site at WTIP. The project was in direct response to community needs, and was funded by the “Engaging Communities on the Economy” grant from the National Center for Media Engagement.

What is a Community Garden?

A community garden is a piece of land shared by friends and neighbors for growing vegetables and flowers.  It provides opportunities for positive social interactions and recreation, as well as many other benefits. >>Learn more

The garden sits on the east edge of WTIP's parking lot. It’s long and narrow and includes five plots. Each plot varies in size. Families, individuals and two local youth groups are sharing the space each working to produce their very own crop of fresh produce.
