Advocates for Women and Children Center

Ozaukee Master Gardener Volunteers maintain existing gardens as well as upgrade and plant new gardens while controlling invasive species at the Advocates for Women and Children Center.  The Advocates Center provides a safe place for victims of abuse and the gardens planted and maintained by Master Gardeners are part of the healing process for these victims.  At the present time, they do not offer therapeutic programming to the populations the center serves.  However, many women and children will approach the Master Gardener Volunteers when they are seen working in the gardens and they naturally become welcoming garden ambassadors.
