Alice’s Garden provides models of regenerative farming, community cultural development, and economic agricultural enterprises. The garden’s historical importance includes having once been the site of the Wisconsin Underground Railroad. Now Venice, who is a fellow Garden Club member, brings the community together here to cultivate the land and friendships. Venice invited the Garden Club to adopt the labyrinth. We have done planting, weeding and clearing of the path starting in the fall of 2020. The volunteers always leave there with a sense of accomplishment and comradery.

Lakeshore State Park is a 22-acre Wisconsin state park located on the shores of Lake Michigan in the city of Milwaukee. The only urban state park in Wisconsin, it offers visitors recreational activities and educational opportunities. We provide and help plant prairie grasses and native perennials to enhance the prairie.
In an effort to promote real-life connections with classroom teaching, GCGM sponsors nature programming for several classes of students in grades 3 - 5 at MPS's Riley School.
Members donated a microscope, magnifying glasses, nature books, posters, plants and grow kits for the 3rd grade Science Corner.
Garden club members come from the five county area. Annual tours to members' gardens are scheduled mid-summer to enhance interaction, friendship building, and opportunity to learn and be inspired by each other.
For 17 years, Milwaukee District Garden Clubs has been working with Habitat for Humanity to provide plants, small shrubs, trees, garden tools and gardening information to Habitat for Humanity homeowners. We support this project by sharing plants from our gardens and/or donating annuals or perennials for the annual container workshop.
