Coulee District is comprised of three garden clubs with memberships ranging from 7 to 24 members each, with a total of 50 members. All of the clubs have ongoing community gardening beautification projects, as well as new potential projects within their communities. Located along the southwestern edge of the state, the Coulee District boasts exceptional beauty. The picturesque hills and valleys border the Mississippi River. Agriculture, ‘a large version of gardening,’ exists in all forms from crop farming to an abundance of vineyards and orchards. It is against this exquisite ‘backdrop’ that gardeners can enhance, and protect, what nature has provided. A horticultural learning center opened in La Crosse, at the Western Technical College campus which hosts many opportunities for the encouragement of gardening. This has been a long-awaited addition for La Crosse and the Coulee region.
This district includes the counties of: Adams, Buffalo, Crawford, Jackson, Juneau, La Crosse, Monroe, Richland, Sauk, Trempealeau, Vernon Counties.
The Wisconsin Garden Club Federation founded in 1928 is a charter member of the National Garden Club organization. As an organization, we are proud of our heritage of developing relationships with fellow gardeners, learning, and gardening for good in our communities.
