Cellcom Children’s Edible Garden at Brown County Central Library
The Cellcom Children’s Edible Garden is a one-of-a-kind outdoor space that supports literacy skills, hands-on learning and healthy eating. Located in front of the Central Library in downtown Green Bay, the garden’s produce is used in educational programs and given away free to library visitors and through local food pantries.

Flex Farm at Central Library
To complement our Edible Garden programming, the Central Library is operating a Flex Farm system in collaboration with Brown County UW-Extension and with funding from United Healthcare. A Flex Farm is a portable, self-contained vertical hydroponic system about the size of a medium refrigerator. It can produce harvest after harvest of nutritious vegetables, herbs, and more – year round! Watch this space for details.
Many thanks to the Master Gardeners for their care and keeping of our garden!
