The Catholic Multicultural Center, a longtime Latino Earth Partnership collaborator, has recently sown a new prairie planting adjacent to the Emmett Schulte Garden. This Madison Area Food Pantry Garden produces harvests that are delivered to the CMC and shared via their food pantry or daily meal program.
An accompanying sign (pictured left) describes the purpose of the prairie restoration: to promote biodiversity and support native pollinators, which will also increase the productivity of the neighboring vegetable garden. Funding for this sign was made possible by grants from the Environmental Protection Agency and the Natural Resources Foundation of Wisconsin.
Congratulations to the CMC community for their continued work to support ecological health and human well-being through restoration!
