Urban Farming at UW-Extension Milwaukee County

UW-Extension (UWEX) in Milwaukee County has long remained a core source for education, land access, and technical resources pertaining to urban agriculture. The first UWEX community garden dates back to 1972 at the historic Milwaukee County Grounds just northeast of the zoo interchange.

Today UWEX provides 10 community gardens throughout the county, serving over 500 families (45% of minority backgrounds) on 75 acres of land. By embracing the vast diversity and culture shared amongst gardeners, we commit to building sustainable centers for urban agriculture throughout Milwaukee County.
