LA CROSSE, WI (WKBT) - As the gardening season comes to an end, a collaboration celebrates its harvest.
Mayo Clinic Health System and the Washburn Neighborhood have a shared community garden near Division and 10th streets in La Crosse.
Throughout the year they harvested a variety of fruits and vegetables. On Wednesday, students from Coulee Montesorri joined the group to unveil a new sign for the garden.
It's a way to raise awareness about the benefits the garden offers and how gardening helps people stay healthy.
"They eat healthy, whole foods, gardening is good exercise, and it actually reduces stress, so those are kind of the three magic ingredients for healthy living," said Joan Mueller, executive director of external affairs.
Ten-percent of the 775 pounds of food harvested from the garden has been donated to local food programs.22737260
