General information

The Garden District Neighborhood Association (GDNA) is an ‘all-volunteer’ organization dedicated to serving and improving the quality of life for those who live in the 13th Aldermanic District of the City of Milwaukee. Our main objective is to enhance the quality of life for residents and neighbors through community beautification and sustainable landscape design. In partnership with the Gateway to Milwaukee Business Improvement District, the University of Wisconsin Extension, Marquette University, the City of Milwaukee, Milwaukee County, Energy Exchange, Inc., and other nonprofit organizations, GDNA volunteers have embarked on several ambitious neighborhood projects that limit stormwater discharge into our creeks and replenish groundwater. The most heralded of these is the establishment of the three-mile-long ‘6th street Green Corridor’ where bioswales with native plantings have been constructed to capture thousands of gallons of stormwater that would otherwise end up in the Wilson Park Creek, a tributary of the Kinnickinnic River. Other notable projects include our annual landscape design awards for residents and businesses in the Garden District; the creation of an active community garden where neighbors rent plots to grow vegetables; and this year’s ‘soft-opening’ of a 66-space Farmer’s Market to provide fresh, locally grown produce to our neighbors and our yearly Garden District Days Festival.

Does anyone know when the garden district trick or treat is? Is it still at night around Burdick school on the 31st?
Located in SE WI, Milwaukee. FREE Joe Pye W**d on the curb. FCFS, DM for address. Some are bare root and some still have the dirt on them and are nice big clumps. They have been cut back some what as they are at the end of their season.
I’d like to clean up the alley from S Griffin to the Burdick School sometime in the next two weekends. If anyone would like to help, let me know what day you’re available and we can plan our attack. (I could also do a weeknight…just a bit more restricted there.)
