The Y's Hamilton Park Community Garden was created to offer free access to fresh garden vegetables and herbs for those who would like to enjoy the availability of fresh produce. It originated as a project created by the Fond du Lac Family YMCA's Youth in Government program.

With the help of Fond du Lac High School's Botany Class, plants are made ready for spring planting and the garden is available for harvesting by the community.  Volunteers are needed for various projects and to keep the garden growing.  

The Y's Hamilton Park Community Garden Partners include:

  • Agnesian HealthCare, a member of SSM Health
  • City of Fond du Lac
  • Drexel Building Supply
  • Annie's Fountain City Cafe
  • Bud's Soils and Grading Service, LLC
  • Fond du Lac High School Botany Class
  • Special recognition for volunteer, Sue Perry

For more information, or to find out how you can volunteer to help with the Y's Hamilton Park Community Garden, email Sherry Ferarro or Jen Memmel.
