LA CROSSE, Wis. (WKBT) - There may still be snow on the ground but that isn't stopping some people from getting a head start on gardening.
Gardeners at the Kane Street Community Garden on La Crosse's north side are already starting to prepare for the summer's growing season.
Preparations usually start around March 15 and the garden typically stays open until Oct 15.
Garden organizers aim to raise over 30,000 pounds of vegetables this summer for the community and the Hunger Task Force.
Organizers say it takes a lot of help to get to that amount.
"We've always tried, for this size of property, if we can grow 30,000 pounds. We did make it last year but a lot of volunteers were helping," said Todd Huffman, coordinator of the Kane Street Community Garden.
If you would like to volunteer, the garden is open weekdays from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. and 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturdays.
