Lake Region Takes Root


The Lake Region Takes Root (LRTR) community garden provides access to healthy, fresh produce for families in need in Otter Tail County. The project created a Master Plan for LRTR including future phases for sustainably irrigating, growing and harvesting fresh fruits and vegetables. Design plans were also created for an outdoor classroom to engage families and to facilitate self-reliance skills, and designs were developed for handicapped accessible gardening spaces for community members.
