Tree Dedication & 1st annual Garden Picnic

We had a wonderful time at our 1st annual Garden Picnic at the Uptown Community Gardens of Peace. It’s been a long journey, but our garden is up and running with 8 gorgeous beds, a new sign and newly planted trees.

The Uptown Garden is dedicated to peace and harmony on the streets of Milwaukee. We are calling for an end to the violence that has hurt so many people!

At the picnic we dedicated a tree called “Russell’s Hope” for the for Russell Setum who was gunned down on Wright and 48th a year ago. His mother joined us at the picnic to cut the ribbon on the new cherry tree.

We would like to thank all of our gardeners and garden organizers, especially Ann Knoedler, without whom this would not be the beautiful success it has become. We would also like to thank our neighbor Walgreen’s on North Avenue, Milwaukee Urban Gardens (MUG), Common Ground of Wisconsin and Reflo – Sustainable Water Solutions for all of their help!

We welcome you to visit our garden at any time. Our garden’s address is 2321-2325 N.

45th St!
