4605 38th Avenue, Kenosha
This small, 480-square-foot building is currently undergoing renovations and will become the nonprofit’s office building. Volunteers carefully removed large amounts of mold and asbestos, as well as the inside walls, creating a safe, open-concept environment. The location will be ADA compliant.
In addition to clerical use, the office will provide space for Board meetings, volunteer meetings, fundraisers, lunches and dinners for local veterans, and will be available for other small groups that may need a meeting space.
We welcome any donations that will help us finish the space. Current needs include:
• Labor • Roofing Materials • An 80-inch sliding patio door
• A 36-inch exterior door and storm door • Subfloor materials
• Drywall and drywall screws • Siding
• Other construction items (contact Andy Berg for more information).
Raised Bed Garden
NW corner of 59th St & 11th Ave
Owned by Kenosha County Supervisor Dan Esposito and managed by GOE, this raised-bed garden has produced hundreds of pounds of vegetables for local food banks.
Generous supporters donated garden implements, a shed and hours of labor to make these harvests possible. This garden has an ample amount of dill, rhubarb, and sage.
Garden of Eatin’ Kenosha
5712 18th Avenue, Kenosha
Longtime GOE supporter Raymond Roberts generously donated this location. The pergola was built and installed by another Eagle Scout, Max. The fence was built and painted by Julie Milligan-Barr and Board member Deb Mitka. The bricks outlining the fence were donated by Eddie Wamboldt. GOE is planning more developments at this location.

Andy Berg, a student at the University of Wisconsin-Parkside, created the Original Garden in 2013 for a class project. In partnership with We Energies and with the help of co-workers, community volunteers and Parkside friends, Berg broke soil, added 10 truckloads of compost from the City of Kenosha, and put in seeds and plants. This garden’s harvest includes pumpkins, squash, garlic, leeks, kale and tomatoes.

Wind Chime Garden
2011 57th Street, Kenosha
Although the original wind chimes didn’t last, the garden has prospered. Dedicated volunteer and Eagle Scout Nick P. constructed twelve raised beds that have added to the annual harvest. More wind chimes—and more development—are on the horizon.
