General

  • Mission:
  • The mission of Bookworm Gardens is to have a special place where landscape and books have been combined, encouraging children and their families to explore nature and literature in a safe outdoor environment. The combination of landscape, books, and activities encourages children and adults to explore in a "green" environment, supporting a holistic approach to creating positive behaviors, education, and critical thinking.

  • History:
  • We have been actively pursuing funding since February 2006. We have successfully raised $1.6 million towards our final goal of $2.8 million. We have acquired 4.5 acres of land, donated by Sheboygan County to build the gardens, located adjacent to the UW-Sheboygan campus. Landscape plans are complete and were designed by award winning landscape architect Herb Schall. The land has been cleared of weeds and debris and is ready for planting and construction, spring 2009. Building and infrastructure plans have been completed.
